The All Girls Surfriders held their annual Hardcore Winter Classic last Sunday at Flat Rock.

‘The one-metre waves and challenging sweep were met with rigorous paddling and bold surfing,’ club member Natalie Grono said.

‘As the day progressed the swell and sweep dropped off and many girls scored long fun rides. Well done to all surfers who showed up and surfed in the middle of winter,’ she said.

The Winter Classic is a prize round with the top four finishers all getting some goodies.
