Lennox Head’s Nyxie Ryan has continued her run of victories becoming the U/16 NSW Junior Girls champion. 

Our local junior and grommet surfers have been busy in Coffs Harbour at the NSW Junior Titles that also incorporated the NSW School Surfing Titles.

Ryan executed a handful of critical turns to notch up a 14.67 two-wave heat total and claim the victory ahead of Cedar Leigh-Jones (Avalon) by fewer than two points. Ryan also competed in the School Surfing Titles and came runner-up in the U/16 All Stars and fourth in the U/19 All-Stars final. 

Jai Glinderman from Lennox Head was a semifinalist in the U/16 Boys NSW Junior Titles.  

The NSW Grommet titles were held at Maroubra in small waves and catered for U/14 and U/12 girls and boys.

Lennox Head’s Dembe Ryan had an excellent result and finished runner-up in the U/14 Boys division.

Juniper Harper from Lennox Head was a semifinalist in the U/12 girls.
