Lennox All Girls

The All Girls Surfriders Club Lennox Head held their club round on Sunday in lush sunshine conditions. There was a two-foot semi-clean easterly swell for a good part of the morning, then the waves were wind affected mid morning for a few of the finals making for challenging bouncy conditions.

It was really nice to have Steph Single, recent winner of 3 Star Pro Junior event in Tahiti, there to hang out for the morning and with The All Girls Surfriders which was her first boardriders’ club. As always we totally appreciate all the help everyone was able to give during the day including judging, flag changing, timer, hooter and packing up.

Well done to everyone who surfed and well done to all the finalists.

Results are:

Div 1 1. Victoria Marano 2. Ebony Santamaria 3. Roisin Carolan 4. Jane Wescher.

Div 2 1. Lizzie Gavaghan 2. Mahlia Carr 3. Georgia Laddin 4. Sage lillyman DIV3 1. Mia Francis 2. Nyxie Ryan 3. Karina Hartley 4. Marika Illic

Fred Newman won the singles competition, Chris Strybos second and Mark Smith third on a count-back. The combination of Mark Smith & Raini Kahn (+3) were again too strong their opposition this time deating Bob Cawthorne & Chris Strybos 3–1 in the final to win the doubles competition.
