Long Reef wins at Dee Why in Surftag Juniors

In small but ideal waves on a warm winter’s day, Long Reef Boardriders Club took out the Junior Surftag Presented by Guzman y Gomez at Dee Why on Saturday.

Kobi ClementsMurray BamberyXavier BryceBaxter Hurt and Ryder James amassed 70.56 points from their combined ten waves in the tag-team relay format.

North Avalon Surfriders (62.47), North Shore Boardriders (55.76) and Merewether Surfboard Club (48.32) filled out the minor placings.

In conditions described as “small but perfect”, a bank of sand that had shifted north from Dee Why corner produced a clean two-foot ‘A-frame’ (a wave that breaks left and right from a central point).

Bryce told The Beaches Champion the event was “really fun”.

“Tag team is always like that, it gets you going.

“It’s always good to have a good crew behind you. They push you to do better. “I was just happy to get a few good waves,” Bryce said.
