Garrett scores a perfect 10

Byron Bay's Garrett Parkes showed his affinity for tube-riding at the Billabong Pro Junior Coffs Harbour last weekend where he finished runner-up to overall winner Owen Wright of Lennox Head as well as netting the only perfect 10 ride of the event.

Parkes ( pictured) won his semi-final heat off a perfect 10-point ride for a long, clean right-hand barrel to advance to the final where he was defeated by an in-form Wright with a 13.90 heat total to Wright's 17.00 overall score.
