Maroubra United Junior team finish 5th

350 groms battled it out over the last 2 days at D’bah & put on a spectacular show & supported each other & their clubs throughout the whole competition. The Maroubra United grom team were the defending title holders and had big targets on their backs from the moment they arrived. From hunters last year to the hunted this year you may say. Every club made sure that they put  their their best surfers up against which did not bother the boys one bit. The boys surfed brilliantly and finished with 3 heat wins to Maxy McGuigan, Koda Killorn and Jake Feher – 4 x 2nd places and 1 x 4th. We were a little unlucky in a couple of those heats and a result or 2 could of seen us challenging for top spot. But that is surfing.

Congratulations to Snapper Rocks Surfriders Club taking out the 9th Annual Kirra Vissla Junior Teams Challenge

  • 1st Snapper – 28 points (wins on countback 105.41 points /140)
  • 2nd Noosa – 28 Points (2nd on countback 95.92 points / 140)
  • 3rd Coffs Harbour – 27 points
  • 4th Leba – 26 points
