It was a fairytale start, a dream come true, but it wasn’t to last. Saturday saw three of our four surfers finish 1st in their heats in our strongest result ever at this event. This included a 9.33 for Nic Squiers which held up as the highest score of the comp until the finals. Sunday was a different story as we advanced directly to the quarter finals.

Despite continued great surfing all round & leading or coming second throughout the quarters, we slipped the 3rd right at the death, even though our surfers did nothing wrong.

The high scores simply weren’t high enough. It was still an outstanding effort so special thanks to our surfers, support crew & club members who travelled up for the event or watched online.

Our club continues to strengthen and we will continue to go for it at the big events hoping as many as possible can come along for the ride.

Congrats to @jbboardriders for making the semis & to @byronbayboardriders for winning the event.
