Congratulations to young Grayson Hinrichs for taking out the U/14 Boys Regional Title at Cronulla a few weeks back. In some fun waves Grayson dominated his rivals from the word go and had his rivals combo’d pretty much right through out the Final. An outstanding result for the youngster and no doubt he is stoked on his 1st major victory at this level.
