DHD Welcomes Super Grom Alyssa Lock to the Team
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 April, 2013 : - - Darren Handley Designs is pleased to announce the addition of Alyssa Lock to the DHD family. Regarded as one of the most gifted up-and-coming groms in Australia, Alyssa is a key addition to an extremely talented junior team. In 2012 Alyssa won the Occy Grom 14s division, took out both the 14s and 16s of the Lennox All Girls Showdown, won the Barton Lynch Blast Off for the 4th consecutive year, and also took out both the Queensland and New South Wales Ripcurl Grom Searches in the 12s.
Contributing to Alyssa’s past successes has been the development achieved with Bourton Shapes. As Murray drives his business more towards high-end custom designs, this is a perfect opportunity for Alyssa to embark on a future pathway with DHD where the core of his focus is on the elite high performance market.
“I’m so excited be on the DHD Team and my new boards are going sick!”
The start of 2013 has been highlighted so far with Alyssa being granted a place as the youngest surfer ever to compete in the Roxy Pro Trials and although she didn’t advance it was a defining milestone in this young surfers life.
“We are fortunate to have a surfer of Alyssa caliber representing DHD,” said DHD Junior Team Manager, Andy Tuttle. “Alyssa is no stranger to the podium and surfs well beyond her years. We look forward to what the future holds for this rising star’s surfing career.”
