Victorian Surfers Strike Gold at Surf Dive N Ski Australian Junior Surfing Titles

The Victorian Junior Surfing Team struck gold last week at the Surf Dive N Ski Australian Junior Surfing Titles held at Culburra in NSW.


The 23 strong team of surfers came home from the week long event with 3x Australian Titles: Ellie Harrison in the Under 14 Girls Individuals, Daisy Corbett & Sophie Fletcher in the Under 19 Girls MR Shield Pairs, and Xavier Huxtable & Codie Jeffery in the Under 16 Boys Allstars. 


Along with the champions, Victoria also had finalists in every School Surfing Division along with finalists in the Under 16 Girls (Sage Goldsbury) and Under 16 Boys divisions (Codie Jeffery).


Victoria also placed runner up in the highly contested Teams Event.


Head Coach, Cahill Bell-Warren is proud of the performance that was put in across the week.


“It has been a massive week for the Victorian squad”


“Coaching these kids alongside Adam Robertson has been a really exciting challenge and there were a lot more wins throughout the week outside the obvious podium finishes”


“Our depth across the whole squad continues to strengthen off the back of the year round programs put in place by the Surfing Victoria Performance Division”


“To have two of our athletes qualify to represent Team Australia at the ISA World Junior Titles is a really positive outcome as well"
