The day boys became men. Geez, the surf was huge. Like proper huge. And the lighties just manned up and paddled out into the craziness and got the waves of their young lives. Massive props to all the kids who surfed yesterday, it musta been heart-in-mouth kinda stuff out there for sure.
JBay lightie Matt McGillivray showed that local knowledge sure does help, when he snagged an absolute bomb that was pretty much triple overhead for him. Got himself properly shacked and racked up a heat win for his efforts.
Tim and Paul made it to the quarters, with Matt & Jerry going on to make it through to the semi's of the boys u17. Rewaldo, Jose, Jono & Alex made it to the quarters, but only Rewaldo got through to the semi's in the u15's, and Angelo & Yannik made the quarters.
Robyn & Tahra are in the semi's of the girls u17. Crystal, Kia & Ashleigh are in the quarters of the u15's. Kai, Kirsty and Zoe are in the semi's of the u13's.
So plenty at stake on the final day, Sunday.
