The beautiful warm waters and golden sand of Currimundi Beach on the Sunshine Coast, Australia was holding some 2-3 foot onshore conditions for these super grommets this weekend.

Local Queenslander and surfer girl prodigy Zahli Kelly continued her radical dominance competing in both the under 12s and 14s division and winning both. Her natural style and power resulted in a massive 10 not once but twice. Posting this un-catchable score in each of her divisional finals.

“This is the first time I have ever scored two perfect 10 point rides in a single comp,” said Zahli. “The Wahu event has always been one of my favourites but taking two wins with two perfect tens makes this event all that more special,” Kelly continued.

In the under 10’s division Cali Barrett took first place over Jahly Stokes, Amber Swan and Liliana Bowrey. Well done to the 10s who were pushing each other to post some well deserved scores all event.

A special shout out to the amazing Jessica Coleman who made it to the Under 8’s mixed finals and placed 4th. Such an amazing effort in some pretty testing conditions for the micro groms, and to see the girls going for it and mixing it up with the boys is so great!
