All Girls 

The Lennox Head All Girls Surfriders club were hit with pouring rain, cooler weather and less than ideal waves for their April round.

‘The weather was against us but we decided to make the most of the morning. The club had a very small turnout for this month. Well done to the hardcore girls who showed up in the rain and thunder and stayed to surf and even managed to have some fun. 

‘Because of the weather we decided to run straight finals except for the Junior Intermediates, who surfed heats and a final,’ Natalie Grono said.
