The 4th event on the Subway Summer Series wrapped up on Sunday in Jan Juc, Victoria Australia with Courtney Dunlop from Phillip Island winning the Under 18 divisions and Piper Harrison from Mr Eliza in the Under 16s.
The girls surfed so well all weekend in a 4-5ft of swell and cross-shore winds that were challenging and messy, but each made the most of their wave selections to nail some tricky sections and score good points
Current Victorian Under 18 Girls champion, Courtney Dunlop took control of the Under 18 Girls final quickly with a 7.50 ride in the opening minutes. Although she was unable to find a good backup ride, Dunlop took the final over Zoe Clarke (Jan Juc, VIC) who could not find a good enough ride in the dying minutes to take the lead. India Robinson (Jan Juc, VIC) and Jemima Hutchins (Barwon Heads, VIC) finished in third fourth respectively.
Dunlop was ecstatic with the win and the chance to go to the Surfing Australia HPC. “I was just happy to get good wave at the start of the heat, the conditions were tough. Getting a chance to go to the Surfing Australia HPC will be great and a good opportunity for me to improve my surfing.”
Piper Harrison continued her great run of results taking out the Under 16 Girls final over local girl Grace Day (Jan Juc, VIC). Piper revelled in the large conditions scoring a heat total of 14.17. Placing in equal third was India Robinson (Jan Juc, VIC) and Sophie Fletcher (Phillip Island, VIC).
“All the girls surfed really well, there was a lot of luck needed out there to find the best waves” said Harrison.
