The All Girls Surfriders club– round was blessed with early south winds, but the swell was small and the wave selection slim.

It was nice to get most of the surfing done in the clean conditions before the northerly puffed its menace, around lunchtime.

The younger girls kept the members entertained throughout the morning with some skilful and inventive free surfing on the club foam boards.

Next meet is Sunday October 27.
