Blaine Robinson – Club Round 4

Contestable waves for the Kirra crew competing at club round 4 on Sunday 2nd of June 2103

After attempting to start the round at a heaving D’bah, the club round was shifted to Rainbow Bay where 2-4ft waves were swept by a brisk Northeaster. The Kirra Crew ended up getting some fun waves and despite the wind, all competitors actually linked together some great turns to keep the judges busy with some high scores awarded across all divisions.

Bravest surfer of the day was 9 yr old Reegan Drew who paddled out in the Groms division only to be swept back in several times by some solid sets. Keep at it Reegan!!

Best barrel of the day went to 12 yr old Seth Johnson who slotted nicely into a perfect little tube, emerging cleanly to then perform a fast snap. Seth then carried the good form through to win the Groms division with Luke V 2nd & Reegan 3rd. Well done Seth!!

Congratulations to Blaine who dominated the Cadet division with his fast, fluid backhand attack, to take home the win in the Cadet Final with Josh also performing well on his backhand, to take 2nd with Jai and Seth, 3rd and 4th respectively.

Best heat of the day was the Junior final with excellent surfing by Dextar, Blaine, Max and Josh all performing at a very high standard and receiving scores in the excellent range. In the end only 1.5 points separated 1st and 3rd with 2nd place decided by less than 0.5 difference in total heat score to 3rd. Congrats to Dexter for emerging the victor in this Final followed closely by Blaine and Max, 2nd and 3rd, with Josh in 4th place.

Also Congratulations to Max who turned on a strong performance with critical forehand maneuvers to take out the Open division final from Danny, Dextar & Hugh, who placed 2nd to 4th respectively.

Thanks to Volcom for the prizes which were shared across the surfers in each division and Grill’d Coolangatta for the food voucher awarded to Reegan.

Finally thanks to all the parents and kids who judged across the day and Jenny, Amy and the crew for preparing and cooking the BBQ to feed the hungry surfers & judges.
