Rising Denmark surfer Isi Campbell reached another final this month, this time at the ninth event of the national Woolworths Surfer Groms Comp at Trigg Point last weekend.

A week after competing at the Taj’s Small Fries in Yallingup, Campbell was again on the board against some of Australia’s best grommets in the two-day contest.

Campbell impressed in the early rounds despite the tricky conditions, making her way into the under-14 girls’ final on Sunday.

She scored 9.43 combined two-wave total from a possible 20 to place third in the final, as Willow Hardy claimed victory.

Margaret River’s Hardy won with a score of 14.67 to defeat Augusta’s Ruby Berry (12.83), Campbell and Mandurah’s Paige Sanders (4.5). The blue-ribbon under-14 boys’ and girls’ divisions were chasing spots at an all-expenses paid surf camp at the Surfing Australia High Performance Centre. The Australia-wide series consists of 10 events for boys and girls in under-8, under-10, under-12 and under-14 age divisions.

Trigg Point was the sole event held in WA. The 10th and final competition will be at Clifton Beach in Tasmania next month.
