Laurina gets fifth at Pro



Byron Bay surfer Laurina McGrath finished equal fifth in the Roxy Pro at Oahu's North Shore in Hawaii last week.

The event was won by six-times world champion surfer Australian Layne Beachley.

Even though Beachley won the event she lost the world surfing crown handing it over to Peruvian youngster Sofia Mulanovich.

The 21-year-old took Beachely's crown with one event remaining after dominating the season, reaching four of the six finals to date and winning three of them.

Beachley collected a $A25,720 first prize cheque, climbing to third place in the standings behind Mulanovich and Hawaiia's Rochelle Ballard.
