Jacob Willcox ‘Filf’ brings to mind just that kind of verb: a smash of heavy barrels and full backhand roters, set in the dynamic battlegrounds dotted through WA. The moments were proper for the opening section of Filf, when Willcox stands tall in a giant backhand barrel after a difficult takeoff. And then, to drive the point home, he drives through another long backhand tube.

With plenty of swell in the forecast the 2013 Rip Curl Pro is shaping up to an exciting event. Pumping waves are predicted Easter Friday onwards for one of the most iconic events in all of surfing. Team Riders Oney Anwar and Jacob Willcox have both been awarded wildcards into the men’s competition.

“I still can’t believe it, I’m so stoked to receive the wildcard and get to surf against the top guys in such an iconic event. Ever since I competed in the Rip Curl GromSearch finals at Bells as a junior in 2009, I’ve wanted to surf in the main event” commented Oney. The young Indonesian surfer will face fellow team rider and defending Bells champion Mick Fanning in round one when competition commences.

15-year-old WA charger Jacob Willcox posted a massive upset last week at the Margaret River pro (his first WQS event), when he took down fellow DHD team rider Adriano De Souza. The U16 Australian Junior Champion has been awarded a wildcard invitation to the Rip Curl Pro due to the withdraw of John John Florence. “It’s unbelievable to get the chance to surf against the best surfers in the world. There’s nothing bigger than the Rip Curl Pro and I can’t wait to get out at Bells and see how I go,” Willcox commented.  Jacob will face current world number one and last year’s Bells runner up Kelly Slater in round one.
