What Did Maroubra Win On Saturday?
Back in 2004 Maroubra claimed the inaugural Milo Gromtag event, 11 years later they're back. On Saturday the boardriders club reclaimed their title with their mighty team made up of 3 under 18's and 2 under 14 surfers.
This year South Curl Curl on Sydney's Northern Beaches was the venue for the tag-team event and the swell came to play with 6-foot sets and some pretty hectic onshore conditions for the groms to contend with. South Curly's gnarly conditions were no turn off for some of the country's best under 18 surfers who got straight to work trying to secure their home team's points with some strong, progressive surfing from all teams.
Maroubra’s Jackson Giles was awarded Man of the Match posting an impressive 23.40 in the four-team final with his earlier scores in the Semi and Quarter Finals being 21.37 and 20.00 out of a possible 30.00. Giles two wave scores in the Final were 7.27 and 8.07 on his Powerwave.
“Super stoked to take out the comp for Maroubra, we had a solid team and were confident going in and we did our job,” said Giles. “Winning Man of the Match topped it off, I was happy to get a couple of good totals during the day and then get my best in the Final.”
Giles was well supported by his teammates with Max McGuigan scoring 21.90 and Monty Tait 17.57 in the fifty minute final. Maroubra sent their three older surfers out the back in the heavy conditions to tackle the bigger waves with their two Under 14 surfers Tye Koolis (4.67) and Jason O’Rourke (1.37) getting the job done on the inside shore break, catching their two waves in quick succession. Maroubra were rewarded 4 Bonus points for finishing their 10 waves first, resulting in the highest heat score of the day – 72.90
