Phillip Island is located off the south east of Melbourne in Australia and is home to a growing number of Australia’s best surfers including World Tour Surfer Nikki Van Dijk. They Island has great surf breaks but in the dead of Winter is bleak like a European Winter. Still it produces champions. Over the weekend a number of interstate girls made their way to the surfing island to take part in the 8th event of the Subway Summer Series.

The swell picked up over the fortnight with storms off the south producing 4-5 foot sets with strong winds. Ironically the event was moved to Summerland’s Beach due to the deteriorating conditions to provide some cleaner, protected bank options for the girls.

In the Under 18 Girls, Lucy Callister from Queensland held her positioning as number one since the previous event by defeating Victorians, India Robinson, May Fox and local Island girl Courtney Dunlop finding small opportunities to smash her turns and find high scoring waves.

“The conditions were a bit tricky but there was some fun ones coming through.  A lot of my family live down here on Phillip Island so it was good to get a win in front of them. It’s a bit like a second home for me.” said Lucy after her win.

Doubling up India Robinson wasn’t going to let he Under 16s finals slip away easily using a combo advantage to secure her win with a 15.67 total score to keep in front of locals Shayla Paterson and Sophie Fletcher and Surf Coaster Isabell Cook.

Well done to all the girls for adapting to the tricky conditions and finding the best opportunities in the waves to score well. Next up the event goes to Margaret River in Western Australia in 2 weeks.
