Presented by Rip Curl, the East Coast Junior Classic was upstaged by the local Dolphin pod which dropped in for a few waves during several heats which added to an already wonderful day to close out the Woolworths State Junior Titles for the season.
Given the dramatic weather around Tasmania NEBR and STAS organisers were blessed to find beautiful sunny and glassy 2 to 4 ft lefts and rights at Dark Hollow on Saturday May 7th. Although there were a few short windy squalls the day was highlighted by the consistent surf on the various peaks available to competitors.
Many thanks to NEBR members, Head Judges Kim Gibson and Michael Schmidt, volunteer judges, Gill Pugh for the wonderful Mothers Day morning tea for organisers. Also thanks for Jon and his crew from Surfside Hotel for sponsoring lunches for organisers and hosting the event Presentations.
