(Top Photo Under 14s winner Bodhi Leigh-Jones by Surfing NSW)
The final Wahu Surfer Groms event of the year was held on the banks between Wanda and Elouera on Cronulla’s northern stretch over the weekend. In clean 1 foot swells the girls worked any available sections to score what they could. There was no lack of enthusiasm or energy in the line up or on the beach with all the girls stoked to be there competing with their friends.
In the user 14s division Bodhi Leigh-Jones added a 3rd Wahu Surfer Groms win to her collection after a smooth combination wave scored her big points in the finals. Younger sister Cedar also competed in the under 14s and took 3rd place but made her presence felt in the Under 12s by executing a number quick but high scoring turns and snaps to win the 12s division.
The Under 10s worked hard to find good waves in a dual final scenario with Oceanna Rodgers a stand out pushing her surfing to the next level, she was rewarded with a 9.0 for a single wave which gave her the final points score win.
