Great waves and results from South Australian Wahu Surfer Groms Event
22nd February 2015
Middleton, South Australia was the location for over 50 frothing grommets the 9th event of the Wahu Surfer Groms Comp. In 2-3 foot conditions the kids enjoyed hot weather and blue skies.
The under 8 mixed division with parent assist was all about fun with Bodhi Kreig taking the win from Leila Horlin-Smith.
The under 10 girl’s final was won by Indianna Freeth who was enjoying the inside shore break waves.
Jack and Lilly MacDonald from Manly, NSW travelled to South Australia to compete in the event with their uncle being former World Tour and South Australian surfer Jarrod Howse. The MacDonald kids both showed they have their uncle’s surfing talent by dominating their divisions, with Jack winning the under 10 boy’s and Lilly the under 12 girl’s.
Jack and Lily’s father Alex MacDonald thanked Surfing South Australia and Wahu for a great event. “We always enjoy coming back to SA and the kids have had a great day here at Middleton for the Wahu comp”, said MacDonald.
In a breakout performance, Yasmin Hardy (Hallett Cove) surfed with spark and commitment to easily win the under 14 girl’s division. “I really enjoyed the clean waves today and the event has been so much fun”, said Hardy.
As winners of the Under 14 divisions, both Ruka and Yasmin have scored themselves an all-expenses paid, three day Wahu Surf Camp at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre.
