Massive congrats to Tribe Member Zahli Kelly in taking out the prestigious title of U14 Girls Australian Junior Champion! Zahli took out the final with a score of 15.50.
Six states were represented at the titles across Under 14, 16 and 18 age groups in both boys and girls divisions at the event that is considered the benchmark of junior surfing in the country.
The 2015 Surf Dive N Ski Australian Junior Surfing Titles determine the selection of all positions on the Australian Junior Surf Team for the 2016 ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in the Azores islands of Portugal. The competition will be held at Praia do Monte Verde, Ribeira Grande, São Miguel Island from September 17-24.
With past winners including World Champions Steph Gilmore, Chelsea Hedges, Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Mark Richards, Tom Carroll and Damian Hardman, a win in this year’s event is a legitimate stepping stone to world stage glory.
