Small conditions equalised the playing field for the All Girls Surfriders Annual Hardcore Winter Classic July prize round, giving everyone a chance to reach the finals.

The day started with off-shore winds and 0.3–0.6 metre clean waves.

Surfers made the most of wave pulses, showcasing some clever manoeuvres, given the weak push of waves.
We had to extend heats to 20 minutes because of disappearing swell, breaking waves and on-shore winds as the day progressed.

Results:

Junior Beginners: Mahia Adams, Amalia Cook and China Esson, Jemima Moore, Cinnamon Laddin-Catron
Senior Intermediates: Cory Whitney, Sylvie Hoarau, Peta Warburton
Longboards: Maz Pentecost, Margreet Wiegers, Christina Dunne, Caz Stephens and Georgia Laddin.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
