Sunday 17th November 2013 – After postponing club round 7 the previous weekend due to no surf, the Kirra crew were amped for some fun waves. A small pop in the swell saw D’bah provide some fun 2-3ft peaks across the day. Enough size for everyone to get out there and rip it up.

The Kirra groms also liked their new 2 round format to show off their emerging skills.

Most promising Surfer of the round was 9 yr old Holly Clarke competing in her first club round and showing that young girls can also rip, by placing 2nd in both rounds of the Grommets division to take 2nd overall in the Grommets. Holly won a Volcom gift card for her efforts and the future of girl surfing is looking strong for the Kirra club. Well done Holly.

Manouvre of the round went to jointly to Blain Robinson, Cadet division winner and Max Tobin, Junior Division winner who both pulled off nice, fins free air reverses in their respective finals to help seal their wins. Well done Blaine and Max

Thanks again to Volcom for the prizes which were shared across the surfers in each division and Grill’d Coolangatta for the burger vouchers

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