Story by Ross Kendal

Byron Bay’s Leihani Kaloha Zoric won her second Billabong Oz Grom Cup title, taking out the 10-and-under girls division at Park beach in Coffs Harbour last weekend.
Zoric did well in the playful sub one-metre waves and surfed well beyond her years in the final exchange, nailing an array of beautiful snaps and carves to finish with a big 16.34 two-wave heat total.
The five-day event, now in its eighth year, catered for over 200 competitors in nine different divisions.
The top four in the 10-and-under girls division included Malia Watson (Tweed) and Henley Smith (Suffolk Park).
Lennox Heads’ Juniper Harper finished with third place in the 14-and-under girls division.
Cabarita’s Kyan Falvey finished fourth in the 16-and-under boys division.
Boys and girls divisions for the event included 8-and-under mixed, 10-and-under, 12-and-under, 14-and-under and 16-and-under.
