Crystal Cylinders

Lennox Head’s Juniper Harper has won the 2019 Billabong Parko’s Grom Stomp in the 12 and under girls division held on the Sunshine Coast.

Ann Street reef, Currimundi was the location of choice for the day which held bumpy 0.6-0.9 metre waves.

Harper impressed the judges with her strong backhand surfing and was undefeated in the competition. 

More success

Ocea Curtis, also from Lennox Head, travelled all the way to South Australia to compete and achieved a fourth place in the girls 12 and under division at the Ripcurl Grom Search competition, held at the famous Chinaman’s surf break on the Yorke Peninsula. 


Byron Bay’s Soli Bailey, and Lennox Head’s Stuart Kennedy have both been knocked out of competition in their first-round heats at the Hawaiian Pro.

Both heats where held in bumpy conditions at Haleiwa on the North Shore and both didn’t get any of the better waves in their respective heats.

Byron Bay’s Owen Wright is not competing in the Triple Crown events as he’s concentrating on Pipeline to consolidate his current number seven ranking while Matt Wilkinson didn’t get a start in these events as his ranking of 106th was too low to make the cutoff.
