2014 Club Round 1

Kirra Groms winning vouchers from Grill'd Collangatta

The Kirra crew were amped for some great waves for club round 1 held Sunday 9th February 2014 at D’bah.

With the forecast earlier in the week promising a good swell, there was anticipation that the round could be held at Kirra.

However the swell did not arrive but fun waves were had by all from the 6 yr old micro groms to the over 40’s masters who all enjoyed a great day of surfing and friendly competition.

Heaps of groms turned out for the first round of the year and all had a great time in the small surf. All the groms won a Grill’d Coolangatta burger voucher, so thanks to Grill’d for your support of the club.

Best manoeuvre of the round was a 3 second barrel by cadet Seth Johnson who emerged cleanly to score a 9 point ride and take out the heat win and ultimately the Cadet Final. Congrats to Seth

Other standout surfers of the round were Luke Vidler who won the Grommets division with a polished display of surfing for his age (11 y.o.), Max Tobin who won every heat he contested across the day ultimately taking out both the Junior and Open divisions and Stuart D’Arcy who taught the old boys a lesson convincingly taking out the Masters division.

Thanks again to Volcom for the board lab gift vouchers which were shared across the surfers in each division’s finals 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.
