DAY 2, Well… every year at Blast Off it seems that the wind decides to join us. Our work team flex their muscles and anchor the tents as best they can. Today was no exception. Day 2 started off as a pleasant spring day, the kids were on fire in some amazing little waves and sunshine. We decided that day 2 was the day we would wrap up the 6s, 8s and 10s before the bigger swell blew in and by 11am the wind picked up and the swell to follow.
It was such an incredible effort by all the surfers, battling that wind in the water and the increased swell. To all the parents that helped out and kept the kids energised and warm, you guys are champions.
We’re looking forward to moving through the draw with the 12s and 14s divisions over the next two days. Although the swell will be picking up it will be great to see some of the hottest young talent in Australia take to the water and showcase their skills.
