Round 2 of the 2021 Woolworths Junior State Titles presented by GLOBE was run at Waits Point this weekend.
The Juniors were greeted by tricky 2-3 ft waves. The Groms had their work cut out for them trying to find corners and waves that would provide scoring opportunities. Fortunately the forecast strong onshore winds did not arrive and we were treated to a fine sound day with light winds.
Corey Taylor (Yorke’s) was the standout on the day dominating the Under 18 Boy’s division securing him the title for 2021. “ Waits is a challenging wave, really unpredictable and punchy, I enjoy surfing here and am stoked to take the U18 Boys Title”, said Corey after his event win. Stella Senior (Port Noarlunga) took the Under 18 Girls division with a strong display of surfing.
Other round winners included Poppy Sweetman (Middleton) and Leo Torok (Middleton) Under 16’s, Maia Taite (Seaford) and Noah Keelan (Middleton) Under 14’s.
The three round Junior Surfing Series caters for boys and girls with divisions for Under 14’s through to Under 18’s and forms the selection criteria for the state representatives for the 2021 Australian Junior Surfing Titles to take place at North Stradbroke Island later this year. The next round will be held on the Fleurieu Peninsula on the 27th of March, followed by the final round on the Yorke Peninsula, dates to be announced this week.
