Stu­dents en­joy beach

Waihi Leader - - News - By WENDY SHAVE Waihi Col­lege Arts co-or­di­na­tor and In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents As­sis­tant

Waihi Col­lege hosted this year’s In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents Surf Day com­pe­ti­tion on Mon­day at Waihi Beach.

In con­junc­tion with Ai­dan Com­rie of Learn to Surf, the day was a huge suc­cess. Apart from the odd cloud the weather was per­fect and the waves were pump­ing. Stu­dents en­tered from Waihi, Katikati, Te Puke and Tau­ranga Boys Col­leges, as well as stu­dents from Beth­le­hem Col­lege to take part in the Learn to Surf lessons. Th­ese stu­dents came from fur­ther afield — Ger­many, France and Japan — and all the stu­dents loved the beach life that New Zealand has to of­fer.

There were sev­eral heats through­out the day and some great surf­ing on dis­play. Some of the kids had never surfed be­fore com­ing to New Zealand but have been mak­ing the most of the beaches and tak­ing lessons over the last few months. Tak­ing out the win­ning fe­male spot was Oceane Robert (of France) from Waihi Col­lege and top male was Constantin Sieve (of Ger­many), also from Waihi Col­lege.
