High-quality showing by keen juniors
Geraldton Board Riders Junior Development Club Event 3 was held recently in epic conditions at Geraldton Back Beach.
Thirty grommets from Geraldton and the Mid West competed in clean, powerful waves, as the older, more experienced surfers took advantage of the clean rights and lefts out the back.
The fun and sometimes punchy reforming waves on the inside were surfed by the younger divisions.
The level of surfing in this event was the highest seen in all divisions.
Senior Club Under-16 Cadets were invited to compete. These guys ripped it apart.
As well as surfing, the juniors are learning judging skills, taught by judges Danny ‘Buddha’ Williams and Deon Hagan.
