Surfers show improvements
LAST weekend saw the successful completion of this years Hot Bread Kitchen Micro Grommet series. The surfing was awesome with all showing improvements from round 1.
Kiesha Wakeham won the under-14 division, Darcy Dwayne won the U12 boys and Torika Tuvounimidra won the U12 girls. In the U10 boys Orlando Hill claimed 1st place while Kiera Wakeham won the U10 girls.
Thanks again to Hot Bread Kitchen, Fiji Surf Co and McDonalds for supporting grassroots surfing in Fiji.
A final training session was held on the weekend at Naqoria, Sigatoka. The Fiji national junior team has been working hard on their fitness and on improving their technique. They will leave on October 22 for the ISA World Junior Surfing Titles at Huntington Beach, California from October 25 through to November 3. Last year we achieved 34th out of 44 countries and the goal is to continue our steady improvement.
Check out the ISA website and watch the scores live and support your Fijian surfers.
