SURFING:

Maroochy Weekly - - SPORT -

Coast groms took on the best from across the coun­try on home sand when the Wool­worths Surfer Grom Comps Se­ries hit Alexan­dra Head­land last week­end.

Bud­dina’s Stella Green and Peregian Beach’s Oli Taylor nar­rowly missed out on the un­der 12 girls ti­tle, be­ing edged out by Cur­rumbin’s Jordy Hal­ford.

Green, who has per­formed well all se­ries, said she was dis­ap­pointed not to come away with the win, but felt she’d per­formed strong.

“The waves were great all event but I was unlucky there in the end and Jordy man­aged to pull off some great rides,” she said.

Wur­tulla’s Eli­jah Mag­ner also nar­rowly missed out on a win, plac­ing third in of the boys events.

Lan­den Smales (Noosa Heads) was the only Coast grom to claim a win at the Alexan­dra Head­land event, tak­ing out the un­der 12 boys divi­sion.

“It was pretty good out there, the waves were fun and pretty big,” Smales said.

“I’m def­i­nitely happy with the win to­day.”

The next round of the se­ries will be held on the Gold Coast from Jan­uary 9-10.
