and Xavier Huxtable (Jan Juc)
have taken out the inaugural
SmoothStar Micro Groms Cup

Ocean Grove on the weekend.

country with over $1000 worth
of prizes across the weekend
which included $250 cash prize

end, Poppy Corbett (Phillip Is-
land) hit her peak during the Un-

the Under 14 Girls," said Corbett.

gether at the different events.

are so much like surfing, its
good to have them support surf

LAST week, 24 local primary school students and
many of their parents and teachers attended the
South Coast Primary School Sports Association
(SCPSSA) Surfing Contest held at the YCW Beach,
on Phillip Island.
Surf conditions were optimal with light winds,
sunshine and a two foot swell rolling in to the bay.
The standard of surfing was very high and all
competitors impressed with their sportsmanship
and positive attitude throughout.
SCPSSA would like to thank Wonthaggi Second-
ary College (WSC) for supplying all the contest
equipment and Brennon Reusch and the WSC Year
10 VET surfing students who helped organise and
run the event including judging all the heats and
putting the contest site together.
Also, a thank you to Newhaven College Year 10
Outdoor Recreation surfing students and to Andy
Neal for their assistance on the day.
SCPSSA would also like to thank parents Amber
Goldsbury and Greg Bill for their support.
