Grommets brave cold seas
The third round of the Secret Harbour Surf Beach Boardriders competition took a different turn last weekend, with small waves drastically reducing the size of the competition.
With several different categories and age groups usually competing, the small waves meant only the push division got a run on Sunday morning. The push division, which is for six to 10-year-olds, meant the young surfers braved the cold winter conditions and headed out on the water with their parents by their side, who pushed them onto the waves.
While the youngsters weren’t officially scored during the event, each surfer did receive a medallion for their efforts.
Round 4 of the Secret Harbour Surf Beach Boardriders competition takes place on July 30.
Small waves didn't stop the young surfers in the push division from having a crack, with help from their parents.
