Isabella Nichols has moved from movie stunt double to the star of the show, winning the Boost Mobile Pro surf contest at South Stradbroke Island.
And Mikey Wright also stepped out of the shadows of his two-time world champion sister Tyler and Olympian brother Owen to win the men's event.
Nichols, 23, met fellow Queenslander Sophie McCulloch in the final on Wednesday and dominated in tricky conditions at the beach break.
Set to make her world championship tour debut this year, Nichols posted a 6.50 score on her third wave and then backed it up with a 4.57 while McCulloch made a few tactical errors with her best score just a 2.23.
Nichols was a body double for mega star Blake Lively in the 2016 movie The Shallows - the same year she won the world junior title - but is now garnering plenty of attention in her own right.
She will wear the yellow leader's jersey going into the third and final contest in Margaret River, taking it from Tyler Wright, who won in Cabarita but lost in the first round on the Gold Coast.
Featuring 24 surfers across the men's and women's fields, the competitions are part of the three-event Australian Grand Slam of Surfing, which was scheduled after the cancellation of the world surfing tour during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nichols said she didn't rate her chances at the island break.
"Coming out of that quarter-final at Cabarita I thought I had no chance but luck went my way and I'm over the moon," the mechanical engineering student said.
Wright blew Liam O'Brien out of the water in the men's final with a dominant win.
He posted an early score of 6.0 before an eight foot wave came from nowhere, with the 24-year-old nailing a barrel and finished off with a floater for a 9.83, which was the highest score of the two-day competition.
Wright hasn't surfed competitively since April, 2019 due to a back injury and COVID-19.
Finding a barrel in every heat and final, he said it was good to be back.
"It's just fun and makes you want to do more and gives you a little bit of fire," Wright said.
"Just putting back on the jersey again and surfing and going heat after heat."
