The Lennox Head All Girls Surfriders held their September club round over the weekend and they were met with warm weather and beautiful clean one-metre waves.
‘We held two banks at Lennox Beach and made the most of the delightful conditions before the NE wind kicked in and the tide dropped. Well done to the junior intermediates who surfed their final in the depleted low-tide waves but made it look amazing,’ Natalie Grono said.
Nyxie and Dembe Ryan, along with fellow Lennox Head surfer Jai Glinderman, have returned from the cold waters of Victoria with trophies after great performances and podium finishes in the finals at the opening event of the Rip Curl Gromsearch series held at Torquay Point on Victoria’s Surf Coast.
Nyxie was runner-up in the 16 girls, while Dembe and Jai came third and fourth respectively in the 14 boys-division.
With wind-swept one-metre waves on offer at the backup location of Torquay Point, competitors were challenged in the slopey right-handers and shifty lineup.
After the five-event series, the top-10-ranked surfers in each division qualify for the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final, where athletes compete for the chance to become the Australian GromSearch Champion.
The National Champion will then represent Australia against the best junior surfers from around the world at the Rip Curl GromSearch International Final, held at a new international location each year.
