FOLLOWING in the footsteps of his famous father, Jaggar Bartholomew has begun to show his competitive surfing potential, taking out the under 14 Queensland state Title over the weekend at Duranbah Beach.

The Snapper rocks surfer beat Hinata Aizawa , Allister Reginato and Kai Dobbyn in one and a half metre shifting waves with a score of 13.57 out of a possible 20.

Young Jaggar clearly has his fathers competitive spirit but also a great deal of his style, all be it with a modern touch.

Jaggar's famous father Wayne Bartholomew won the 1978 world title and still is one of the most influential figures in Australian surfing.

The Queensland junior circuit has fostered some of the biggest names in Australian surfing like Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson who have both got world titles in their trophy cabinet.

Jaggar will now represent the state at the national titles later in the year alongside Coolangatta's Holly-Daze Coffey who finished third in the under 18 girls division.
