Congratulations to Poppy S who competed in the SA School Surfing competition and came 1st overall for the event! In this event High Schools compete from all over the State in U16 and open age categories. Poppy is eligible to enter, as many other schools start high school in Year 7. She trains every Monday with Adam Foot (VHHS) and the school team at various surf spots on the South Coast (Parsons, Waitpinga, Middleton Point). In previous year's overall winners gained a spot on the State Surfing Team and competed at the Australian Junior Surfing Titles. Unfortunately, this year there may not be a SA team entered in this event. Well done Poppy. We wish you all the best with your future surfing competitions.
