Rapid antigen test shortages across the country

As you’ve no doubt heard, people in NSW are now allowed to test themselves for COVID-19 using a rapid antigen test (RAT), rather than lining up at a testing centre. There’s just one problem: no one has any RATs.

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.
