Event 6 wrap

A super clean 2-3 ft SE swell had us setting up on a pretty epic A Frame. Winds turned offshore at about 8am and stayed that way all day. With pumping waves on offer everyone came along with their A-Game. Plenty of epic heats with some of the highest heat scores we’ve seen in years. Standouts on the day included Monty Tait fresh back from Europe, Gully Thomas, Kyle O’Sullivan, Seamus Connon, Jackson Dennett, Luana Rubbo, Baylei McGuigan and Shira Arakawa. The Micros Groms surfed on the bank in front of the skate park and geez they were ripping too.
