Southland’s Jessica Terrill has claimed the Women’s Title of the South Island Surfing Championships at St Clair Beach, in chilly Dunedin yesterday.
Jessica dominated her final held in clean 1.0m waves with clean surface conditions. As the lone Southland surfer in the final, Jessica got off to a flyer accumulating a 13.50 point heat total after her first two waves. The lead became insurmountable for her opponents who were left fighting for the minor placings.
Dunedin surfer Tash Mattingly held on for a runner up finish ahead of Shani Ayson (Dun) in second and early event stand out and defending champion Hayley Coakes (Dun) in fourth. The final title of the day went to 15 year old Shani Ayson (Dun) winning the Under 20 Girls Division.
