Day 3 of the Hurley SA Junior Champs dawned with some lekker lil waves wrapping into the Point. Things got a bit more hectic in the arvo, as the SW buster picked up steam. Luckily the Point is pretty protected by the kink in the headland which means it doesn't get to face nature's full fury....and the lighties didn't get blown to Gamtoos.
It was another excellent day for the EP Team as the kids really lifted their game. EP have only lost only 3 out of their 23 surfers after 3 days of competition. So looking good!
The U17 Boys relished the bigger surf with Matt McGillivray and Eastern Province teammates Paul van Rijswick and Tim Baard posting heat victories to advance to Round 4 along with fellow heat winners Max Armstrong and Dylan Wichmann (both WP), Bryce Burness (KZNC), Michael Monk (Border) and Steff Burrows (Boland).
Not to be outdone, the U15 Boys also raised their performance levels with standouts including Rewaldo Abersalie and Jono Coffey (both EP), the WP pair of Jordy Maree and Ford van Jaarsveldt, Boland’s Adin Masenkamp and Tristan Lev, Keagan Wallace (KZNC) and Dane Olsen from Southern Cape.
Tahra and Robyn are into the u17 girls semis on Sunday. So a big day Saturday to see who else can make it through to the finals.
