Six of our talented local groms are heading down to Sydney’s northern beaches for the 14th annual ‘BL’s Blast Off’.
Defending champion in the girls six and under Leilani Zoric from Suffolk Park will be the favourite in her division, while her younger brother Atlas will make his debut at the event in the boys six and under.
Lennox Head’s girls Keke Brain (eight and under), Ocea Curtis (10 and under) and Mia Baker (12 and under) will also compete.
Suffolk Park’s Will Harris will be challenging the field in the boys 12 and under division.
The event is the biggest of its kind in the world and was created by 1988 world champion Barton Lynch.
Lennox Head’s Mikey McDonagh competed at the Sri Lanka Pro event held at Arugam Bay.
McDonagh won his first heat but unfortunately scored a very difficult next round heat and just missed out on advancement.
He finished in equal 33rd place overall which has moved him up 30 places on the international WSL QS ratings ladder.
