It seems like everyone has been waiting a really long time for events to start back up around the world. In Australia, Queensland went first with events, shortly after New South Wales released a schedule of multiple events along the east Australian coastline. Victoria however had been very quiet in regards to when they will hold events again (and for a very good reason, to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 outbreak). 

And after what seems to be a very loooooooong time, events are back ON in Vic! With the first (of what we’re sure to be many events) being held at Jan Juc. The iconic Rip Curl Grom Search event saw surfers from the Victorian Surf Coast dominating the whole event winning 5 out of the 6 divisions. 

The prestigious event has seen many big names over the years like Tyler Wright, Steph Gilmore, Sally Fitz and many more. 

The results are as follows:

16 & Under Girls

1st Emily McGettigan – 13.34

2nd Ellie Harrison – 12.67

3rd Mia Huppatz – 8.57

4th Poppy Corbett – 7.30
