Jake Snellgrove has won the U13 boys of the Wahu Surfer Grom Comp at Narrowneck on the Goldy. It's great to see young Snelly achieve a big win. Well done mate.
Michael Wright has capped off a stellar 2009 by placing 2nd in the U15 boys . Mikey was on fire for the whole event and should be stoked with his result.
