Willcox put on a show in Round 1 at the World Junior Championship in early January.

It won't be anything new for the Western Australians, both who have competed in several of the elite level events before. Willcox earned the wildcard seeds at Rip Curl's (his main sponsor) events at Bells Beach and Portugal in 2014.

Giant killer performance from Palmateer today.  ASP/ROBERTSON Felicity Palmateer has competed in the trials in recent years, but hasn't appeared in the main event since 2013. - WSL

Palmateer has competed in several Championship Tour events including the 2013 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro where she placed equal ninth. In her Round One heat during the event she took down six-time World Champion Stephanie Gilmore and Pauline Ado to advance directly to Round Three. This year she'll be facing current World No. 1 Courtney Conlogue in her first heat.

Don't miss Willcox and Palmateer do their best to challenge the elite at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro.
