Girls' 'hard core' surfing at Lennox
THE All Girls Surfriders held their annual Hardcore Winter Classic Prize Round at Lennox Beach.
The ocean turned it on with pulsing 2-4ft clean but challenging waves.
There was a spectacular turnout by members who were eager to compete for the prize bags.
A big thanks to sponsors and members who donated goodies for the prizes.
The day was all about wise wave selection with the outer bank providing some dramatic close-outs, but also epic fast rides for those who took on the challenge.
The inner bank delivered a range of waves rideable for all.
It was fantastic to see all divisions out there having a good go.
Apart from the morning's westerly wind puffing with a slight chill, the day turned out to be a pleasant 23 degrees with a warm water temp of 22 degrees, enjoyable yet alarming for mid winter.
