Oney Anwar is a 19-year-old surfer from Lakey Peak, Sumbawa but has been living on the Gold Coast for nearly 5 years. Surfing since the age of seven he has risen through the ranks of the Australian Pro Juniors and created history as the first Indonesian surfer to win an Australian Pro Junior event in 2010 when he took out the Dripping Wet Pro Junior at South Curl Curl, Sydney. Oney won $3000 in prize money and sent it back to his family in Sumbawa to buy a house, which speaks volumes about this humble athlete’s character.
Oney gave the 2012 Queensland Championship Circuit a serious run, finishing in the top four. His biggest result was the 2012 Billabong Pro in Japan, a four-star open World Qualifier where he finished second to Hawaii’s Ezekiel Lau.
Most recently, Oney won a wildcard spot for the 2012 ASP Oakley Would Junior title in Bali. He narrowly lost to California’s Connor Coffin, in round 3 of competition. In 2013 Oney will begin focusing on taking his surfing career to the next level by competing on the WQS.
