Local girl surfers proved themselves again after dominating event three of the 2020 Woolworths Surfer Groms Comp Series held in Coffs Harbour this week.

Juniper Harper (Lennox Head) showed she had gained more momentum since taking out the 2020 Havaianas NSW Grommet Titles at Maroubra Beach earlier this year, by taking out the U/14 Girls division.

As in the Grommet Titles, Juniper and fellow Lennox Head surfer Ocea Curtis went neck-and-neck with both girls trading off a handful of impressive snaps to finish first and second respectively in the final.

Leihani Kaloha Zoric (Byron Bay) put on an exciting display of surfing in the U/12 Girls division, finding a handful of rare, long-running righthanders to post an excellent 8.33 wave and gain the upper hand in the final.

Zoric is also expected to compete in the U/10 Girls division.

Boy Groms

Max Mcgillivray (Evans Head) made his trip south worthwhile, taking out the U/14 Boys division with a dominant performance.

The event includes four different age divisions, starting at U/8s right through to the U/14s.

Over 70 competitors were in the event.
