Big swells greeted competitors for the opening round of the WA Junior Surfing Titles at Surfers Point in Margaret River at the weekend and again Denmark’s Isi Campbell was in the thick of the action.

Campbell, one of WA’s most talented juniors, reached finals in two different age groups in the first round.

She made the finals in the under-14 cadet girls and under-18 junior girls after an impressive couple of days in monster waves on the south coast.

After 2-3ft waves on Saturday, surfers were greeted with huge 6-10ft waves on Sunday with WA’s young stars stepping up to tackle the big surf.

In the under-18 junior girls’ division, Campbell finished third after scoring a combined score of 8 behind winner Willow Hardy (10.75) and Mia Scott (8.15).

The Denmark grommet managed a score of 5.25 in the under-16s cadet girls’ final to finish fourth, behind Hardy (10.90), Ruby Berry (7.50) and Kaleisha Launders (6.00).

The second leg of the three-event titles will be held at Trigg Point on April 10 and 11.
