Surfer represents in US
When Emma Cattlin looks back on 2018, one of her highlights of the year will no doubt be helping Australia secure third place at this year’s ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in California.
The South West Academy of Sport surfer was part of the Australian team which competed at the Huntington Beach event over late October and early November.
The contest involved representatives from 44 countries, who competed for individual and national bragging rights.
Australia, which finished fourth at the 2017 titles, went one better, with Emma playing a sterling role when called upon.
“It was pretty unforgettable,” Emma said. “To represent Australia was amazing.”
Emma, who competed in the under-16 age bracket at world titles and is the current under-18 girls State champion, believes Australia’s medal at the titles was positive.
“To do one better for Australia was pretty cool,” Emma said.
