The All Girls Surfriders April club round was held in Lennox in glorious weather with fun, consistent one-metre-plus waves for the duration of the meet.

The shallow, low-tide sandbank produced many paddling challenges for surfers, but a shout out to the junior and senior intermediates pushed their boundaries and were rewarded with charging rides from out the back.

Senior beginner: Breanne Brown, Lindsay Vaughan, Janet Pierce, Claudia Curchin.

Junior intermediate: Mia Baker, Leihani Zoric, Poppy Morison, Sasha Oxland.

Senior intermediate: Lou Webster, Ruby Johnson, Deb Gordon, Cory Whitney.

Wahine masters: Jane Collins, Kerene Bienke, Melissa Cook, Kellie O’Brien.

Opens: Juniper Harper, Sarah Morison, Amy Scott, Tamika Hudson. Longboards: Jen Hollier, Kerry Williamson, Marg Bryant, Georgia Laddin.
