Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series Presented By Pic’s Peanut Butter Goes Down A Treat In Tasmania

CLIFTON BEACH/TASMANIA (Feb 27th/2019): Thirty-five Tasmanian and interstate competitors duked it out in onshore 2-3ft waves at South Clifton Beach over the weekend in the second last round of the Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps presented by Pic’s Peanut Butter.

Bumpy conditions didn’t stop the seven divisions putting on a great show for spectators and officials at Clifton. World Surf League (WSL) Qualifying Series star and South Arm Boardriders Club legend Lizzy Stokely was on the microphone encouraging the groms in the tricky conditions.

Surfing Tasmania’s CEO Shayne Clark was stoked with the event, saying : “ It was another great day of competition and Surfing Tasmania would like to thank Head Judge Johnno Nordstrom, judges Bob Syrett, Stella Gibson, Felix and Bella Goward, all the volunteers, commentator Lizzy Stokely, Tallier Sophie Adams and the set up crew and volunteers who helped pack up.”
