Three of our lighties are in the SA team competing at the World Juniors in Nicaragua at the moment. Dylan Lightfoot's dad, Gary, popped us an update and some pic's on how our lighties were doing:
"The team surfed against the NZ team yesterday in the SANZ Challenge SA got a very close 2nd place in extremely difficult conditions almost every wave was a close out & wave selection seemed to be SA down fall, all team members gave 100% commitment and can be proud of their efforts.
Conditions here are extreme daily temp hovers around 34 degrees & spikes up to 40 degrees midday, the teams focus has been to get to grips with the conditions, waves are heavy hollow, fast beach breaks the boys surfed Poyopo today from 6 feet on the inside to 12 feet on the outside reef the girls very wisely sat this session out. From now on its building each team member up mentally & physically in preparation for the event starting on Sunday."
Go Dylan, Matt and Gina!!
