Croyde Surf Club called the Redwood Grom Contest “ON” today !
With a solid 3-4ft swell thumping through it was always going to be a challenge. The Groms were far from phased by the conditions and charged out it the line-up , eager for some hefty wedges and a huge slice of league points to boot.
First to paddle out , the under 16 and under 14 boys , great to see Jake Arrowsmith back out there in a CSC rash vest , backed up by little brother Lewie in the same heat ! Great performances from Beau Betteridge , Sam Taylor , Alex Townsend and Noah Spooner , results are listed below.
Holding a surf comp in a 2hr window of daylight was always going to hectic but even more so when ten under 12s register to compete.The guys and girl were split into two heats and the scores tallied accordingly , again the mayhem was collated to the results below.
Last up the Micro-Groms , the under ten division, some assisted , hit the water for some high tide hang tens , head stands or whatever mayhem they could inflict on us , a judges nightmare totalled below.
