The All Girls Surfriders May competition was held during their annual campout held at Evans Head.

The campout has been held for nearly two decades and gives members an opportunity to hang out and get to know each other, as well as surfing a different break. 

‘Many members spent two nights camping out which meant plenty of time for social free-surfing and other activities. On the Sunday the competition was welcomed with nice clean and contestable 0.5-1m waves, which were suitable for all surfers. The multiple peaks meant everyone got waves leaving smiles on dials,’ Natalie Grono said.

Pro surfing

Byron Bay’s Matt Wilkinson finished in equal 13th place at the Corona Bali Protected Pro held at Keramas on the East Coast of Bali. By his own admission Wilkinson had a bit of a shocker in Round one but bounced back in Round two with some fast vertical surfing in a dominant performance against France’s Joan Duru. Wilko continued his good form in Round three but was pipped at the post when young rookie Griffin Colapinto landed a massive air reverse in the dying minutes of the heat to eliminate Wilkinson from the event.  

Stu Kennedy from Lennox Head fought hard to claim a 9th place at the QS 6,000 Ichinomiya Chiba Open  in Japan.  Gaining 1550 points and $2500 Kennedy has jumped up to 14th place on the WSL QS ratings ladder. Byron Bay’s Soli Bailey is in 84th spot. 

The BK Surf Classic and Willsy X Groms is on this long weekend.
