Looking forward to All Girls title
IT will be a tough contest for titles at the final All Girls Surfriders Club carnival this year, with a lot of the competitors on close scores.
The carnival will attract over 60 competitors from the ages of 10 to 60 said All Girls Surfriders Club committee member Maz Pentecost.
“The carnival covers the cross-section of women’s surfing, with events for junior beginners to senior beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers and longboards,” she said.
Throughout the season club members have amassed attendance points, as well as additional points for placing first second, third or fourth, and this has meant a lot of the girls are sitting close on the ladder.
“At the moment there are some really close results, so no one really knows who is coming first,” Pentecost said.
“The winners will have the best six results over the 10 sessions.”
And with club members including plenty of talented surfers like Laurina McGrath, Jenny Boggis and Pauline Menczer, younger girls have many role models to help their surfing development.
“Our emphasis is on the development of women’s surfing, and the event has been going on for years now,” Pentecost said.
“There is fantastic development of talent.”
According to Pentecost, the club ‘constantly have people approach them’ to ask about upcoming talent in the club, providing stepping stones to regional, state and national titles for promising surfers like Lyla Wright, Stephanie Single and Codie Klein.
“It gives girls opportunities to showcase their talent at other events,” she said.
The carnival will be held in Lennox Head on November 22.
