The All Girl Surfriders had ‘an absolute ripper of a round’ held in beautiful, autumn sunshine and a glassy swell up to 1.2 metres.

‘There were some absolute bomb sets coming throughout the back, testing the skills of those brave enough to take them on. As well as plenty of steady reforms on the inside sections for our beginner and intermediate surfers,’ the club’s Renee Adamson said.

‘All in all, another great round of surfing from all divisions, leaving plenty of big smiles, surf stoke, and even a few surprise results at the end. Congratulations to all of our competitors,’ she said.

The next club round is at Arrawarra for the campout.
