Ocean Thunder Round 2 Results

Jack Patison’s defending series champions, Ego Platinum Austinmer, are sitting pretty on top of the Evive Ocean Thunder Pro Surf Boat Series pointscore after a spectacular round two at Dee Why on Saturday.   Austinmer (pictured left) finished fourth in the double-race final behind Skilled Avoca, Your Style North Curl Curl and e-Go Pacific Palms.   But consistency is the name of the game and after the smaller conditions of round one and the testing two-metre surf which greeted the crews in round two on Saturday, the “Austi” boys are on top.
