COOLUM surfer Kelly Norris has made the final round of the Breaka Burleigh Pro Wildcard Competition and needs your vote to go all the way.
Phase 1 of the competition closed last Friday, with Norris and Laura Poncini from Moffat Beach the only two Sunshine Coast surfers to make the final.
Both surfers are now up against four Gold Coast surfers for the highly sought-after wildcard positions to secure a spot in next month's Breaka Burleigh Pro at Burleigh Heads.
"This would be a huge advantage to win the wildcard position," Norris said.
"It would give me valuable points to start 2013 and the opportunity to surf in the same round as the pro surfers - a dream come true.
"I have had a lot of support from the local community and am hoping they will get behind me and vote.
"You need to vote one guy and one girl and as Laura and I are the only two Sunny Coaster surfers left and both have similar ambitions, we need the Sunshine Coast community to get behind us."
To vote, go to Facebook, 'like' the Breaka Flavoured Milk page, click on the Breaka Burleigh pro wildcard competition and vote Kelly Norris and Laura Poncini.
This year the Wildcard competition is open to female juniors as the 2013 Breaka Burleigh Pro hosts an exciting new addition to the schedule with the ASP 6-star women's event.
Breaka senior product manager Melissa Packham said the event would provide fans and spectators a great opportunity to see surfing's elite turn it on over eight days from February 3-10.
"We're especially excited to open this opportunity up to female surfers this year," Ms Packham said.
"Being able to introduce the next generation of young surfers to this level of competition, to give them the opportunity to surf against some of the best in the world, is going to do great things for the sport and we're excited to be a part of that."
Voting closes January 17, so vote now for the homegrown surfing talents.
