NSW junior regional titles hits water running

THERE were waves galore on the weekend, as the NSW Junior Regional Titles got underway at North wall beach.

There was uncertainty before the event as strong winds and heavy rain the previous day cast a cloud over the event but organisers found managable three to five foot waves on offer to the participants.

In the under-18s boys, promising Emerald Beach natural footer Jack Veale emerged victorious in the division.

The top three from each division will represent the Mid North Coast in the state championship later this year.

The wave of the day belonged to the only Crescent Head representative, Robbie Pugh, posting an impressive nine point barrel on his way to the 16 years crown.

Event organiser Scott Schindler was happy with how the weekend played out and thought North wall was the best location on offer under the circumstances.

"It was a fantastic two days for the whole family...could'nt have been better," Schindler said.

"Conditions were perfect with good consistant waves with Northwall providing the best conditions for the event."
