Volcom Kirra Teams Challenge
Over the weekend I ended up surfing in the Volcom Kirra Teams Challenge, against men…
I’ve been surfing with the Kirra Surfriders Club for over a year now. The team I represented at the Kirra Teams Challenge was the Surfrider Foundation, which was one of the teams put together by the Kirra Surfriders.

I’m not sure how I ended up in amongst all the men.
I got a text message from our club president a few days before the event asking if I wanted to surf for one of our teams in the event. I had a think about it & didn’t really know what the format was but I decided to go with it & put on the contest singlet a few days later, in the second day of the event.
I thought it’d be a good warm up for me to surf a heat against the boys at D’bah considering I have the Roxy Pro Trials this week & with the way Snapper is looking it is a possibility that the trials will be held at D’bah.
The banks are pretty good at D’bah at the moment and a lot more consistent than what Snapper has been.
Although in saying that, they’ve been pumping more sand and it’s not looking that bad. If the bank at Snapper gets a little more sand than what they’ve just pumped there, it could be good with a little more swell. I surfed it yesterday afternoon & it was very small & very crowded with little kids but it definitely had potential.
I’ve been surfing D’bah over this last week & the waves have been kind of fun, over the years I’ve surfed both of these places a fair bit. Being able to surf the trials at Snapper with no more than 3 other people out is a dream come true, but it’ll all depend on the conditions on the day as to whether or not it’ll be held there.
My schedule for the next month is pretty full on, it consists of the
- Roxy Pro Trials on the 24th of Feb
- Beach Burrito NSW Open State Titles at Cronulla on the3-4th March
- Womens 6star, Hunter Ports Women Classic at Newcastle from 12-17th March
- Womens 6star, Telstra Drug Aware Pro at Margaret River from 19-25th of March.
