Local & Interstate Champions Crowned At Wahu Surfer Groms Comp
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 December, 2010 : - - Gold Coast -- It was all systems go on day-two of the Gold Coast Wahu Surfer Groms Comp with champions crowned across all divisions in small waves at Broadbeach. Grommet-extraordinaire Holly-Sue Coffey (Crescent Head, NSW) added another string to her bow, bagging a win in both the U/13 and U/15 Girls divisions.
Its cool to win the Wahu Surfer Grom Comp especially coming into summer when there is heaps of comps on, said Coffey. Everyone always has a fun time at this event, so its good to mix in the competition with a fun side, she said. Meanwhile, Noosavilles (Sunshine Coast, Qld) Nick Callister couldnt hide his excitement with a mix of skill and luck helping him claim the blue ribbon U/15 Boys division ahead of Luke Hynd (Burleigh Heads, Qld).
In a two-horse race, Callister had caught his maximum 10-wave quota which meant the talented goofy-footer (right foot forward stance) had to watch the last two minutes of the decider from the beach. With a combined two-wave heat total of 13.17 (out of a possible 20) in the bank, Callister watched on as Hynd chased a mid-range 6.35, which would have given him the lead and the win.
Fortunately for Callister, the ocean went flat as the siren sounded, leaving Hynd stranded in second place.
