Barwon Heads surfers dominated the Ocean Grove stop of the Woolworths Surf Groms.
In the small tricky conditions Zeph Lamperd and Ellie Harrison claimed the under-14 boys and girls titles.
Lamperd was dominant in the final throwing down massive power turns on his way to a 14.86 heat total.
“It’s awesome to win here at Ocean Grove. All that time surfing here when it has been windy has paid off,” he said.
Lamperd and Harrison will now receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Surfing Australia High Performance Center for their efforts.
“I have never been to the HPC before, but I have heard its epic. I am looking forward to surfing in some warm water and learning from the coaches up there,” Lamperd said.
Placing in second in the under-14 boys final was Willis Droomer (of Jan Juc) who finished on 12.14 points. Asher Lens (Aireys Inlet) and Charlie Mahoney (Ocean Grove) finished in third and fourth respectively.
Ellie Harrison used her superior wave knowledge at the break to take out top honors in the under-14 girls, locking in a heat total of 11.40 points.
“Every time I have got second at this event, so its nice to finally win,” Harrison said.
“The waves weren’t very good, but it was a fun event. I can’t wait to get up to the HPC again and go on their massive skate ramp.”
Jazz Wylie (Jan Juc) placed in second on 10.40 points. Mia Huppatz (Jan Juc) and Elise Franzose (Point Lonsdale) finished in third fourth.
Other winners throughout the event included Willis Droomer (Jan Juc) who impressed judges with his aerial game in the under-12 boys division, Isla Huppatz (Jan Juc) in the under-12 girls, Remy Filer (Jan Juc) in the under-10 boys, Ruby Trew (Seaforth, NSW) in the under-10 girls and Teal Lamperd (Barwon Heads) in the under-8 mixed.
Lucas Hickson (Rye) and Sarsha Pancic (Bairgowrie) were awarded the Woolworths Fresh Wave Award for being the best-and-fairest surfers of the event. They walked away with a $250 Woolworths voucher each.
