The younsters had plenty of fun in Bali.

Byron Bay’s Duke Wrencher and Oska and Teo Martin from Ocean Shores have returned home from a surfing competition in Bali over Easter with quality results.

The BL Blast Off was run by Barton Lynch and Hurley and was held over five days at Bingin on Bali’s Bukit Peninsula. It comprised an international field in four age divisions for boys and girls. 

The competition was blessed with a solid swell midway through the week, which saw an unprecedented high standard of surfing from all.

Duke finished third in the U/14s, Oska third in the U/10s, and Teo came second in the U/8s.
