Berry Bay Surf JAm
South Australia’s premier junior surfing event, The Berry Bay Surf Jam was concluded over the weekend with competitors and spectators treated to fantastic weather and great surf. Light winds and pulsing swell provided non-stop action at the 9th annual Surf Jam.
This year’s event had to be run over 2 days because of a record number of entries who came from all over the state to compete in this great event. The popular white water division was completed at the picturesque Bery Bay South along with the Under 18 and Under 16 green water divisions. Sunday saw the event being moved to Berry North to conclude the Under 12 and Under 14 green water divisions.
It was Yorke’s surfers who stole the show winning the elite Under 18 divisions with Corey Taylor (Marion Bay) and Meg Day (Corny Point) taking the boys and girls division respectively. Yorke’s surfers held their own placing well throughout all the divisions.
As well as 2 days of great surfing there was no shortage of fun and interactive opportunities for competitors and families including on beach coaching for the whitewater divisions, funboards provided by Neptunes Surf, live music, and food supplied from local vendors.
A massive thank you to all the Sponsors, the Yorkes Junior club volunteers, and everyone else that pitched in making this such a successful event.
