Talent of the future on display
22nd February 2021 The Gisborne Herald Jack Malcolm
Up-and-coming surfing talent was showcased when 91 children from across Tairawhiti descended on Midway Beach on Friday.
The grommets had highly contestable conditions that suited them for the OPSM Tairawhiti Junior Champs, Gisborne Boardriders Club surfing development manager Flo Bub said.
“It was pumping . . . we're so lucky. What a day on the beach, with 91 groms frothing out.”
