Austinmer surfer Shyla Short has taken silver at the three-day 2018 Havaianas NSW Grommet State Titles at Maroubra Beach over the weekend.
Shyla has been recognised as an ‘event standout’ in the Under 12 girls, coming in behind Quincy Symonds of Tweed Heads.
Keeping it in the family, Shyla’s sister Zahlia finished third in the Under 14 girls.
Competitors in the Under-12 and Under-14 divisions were vying for a prestigious NSW Junior Title, with the Under-14 division allocated positions for the Australian Junior Surfing Titles which will take place in South Australian in November/December.
All qualifiers for the Havaianas NSW Grommet State Titles were determined by eight individual regional titles, which took place up and down the NSW coastline earlier in the year.
Meanwhile Thirroul’s Darci Air and Kasey Hargreaves from Bulli High have finished second in the U19 MR Shield at the prestigious NSW Schools Titles at Macaleys Beach at Coffs Harbour
And Austinmer’s Fin McLaren finished seventh in the U19 Boys section of the NSW Junior Titles – he’s now ranked in the top 15 in the State.
