Results Irish Open Junior Surf Championships

Co Sligo Surf Club were host to the Irish Junior Surf Open this weekend.  The event was

planned for Strandhill but was relocated to Easkey Left where the surf size and wind made conditions very challenging for competitors, some paddling out at Easkey for their first time.
Brendan Monaghan took the U18 Boys title with two high scores. Una Britton won the U18 Girls and the U16 Girls. Jack Scott edged club mate and chief rival, Louis Devenney into second to take a win in the U16 Boys. Tom Breen earned his Easkey stripes this weekend, charging into three finals, including a win in the U14 Boys, 3rd in the U16 Boys and 3rd in the U18 Longboard. Jack Clohessy continued to dominate the U18 Bodyboard with another win while Tadgh Kennedy won the U18 Longboard. Jessie Smith Mc Carthy kicked off the U14 Girls final with a solid score that sealed her win. The U10s and U12s moved to Aughris on Saturday evening where Finn Richardson won the U12s. Finn was also awarded highest scoring wave of the contest for a wave in his first heat of the U14 boys at Easkey Left. Cathal Deery won the U10s event.
Thanks to the event sponsors, Hurley and Call Of The Wild for all the great prizes. Our appreciation to Easkey Community Council and the Beach bar, Aughris for facilitating our last minute relocation. Credit to our safety team, John O’Leary, Brian Parle and Geaorid Mc Daid who patrolled in the water during heats.
