MICK McGILLIVRAY is certain his seven-year-old son Max could win Blast Off surf comp in Sydney next week.

"He's advanced for his age. he's been winning his age division at the Lennox Ballina club comps," he said.

Max turns eight, the day the Sydney comp starts and will compete in the eight and under section.

It is his first time at the Hurley BL Blast Off and he reckons he'll do alright.

Thirteen year old Sam Ticknor went last year.

"I didn't do too good," he said about not getting a place.

But he is better prepared this year, Sam said.
