On Saturday the 22nd Wellington Boardriders will be holding the Wellington Regional Scholastic Trials to a pick a team to send to the National Scholastic Championships being held in Gisborne from 8th-12th October.
Due to a lack of local swell it looks like our comp for groms will be held over @ Castlepoint this weekend. Stay tuned for the official call on Friday at 6pm - until then, start planning your ride
The National Scholastics have a long and important history in New Zealand surfing – Maz and Jay Quinn, Ricardo Christie and Page Hareb are all former Scholastic Champs – and is an amazing development opportunity for groms. It exposes our groms to the best surfers in the country – pushing their surfing for the better, provides them a chance to establish life-long friendships across the Aotearoa surfing community, and gives exposure to the talent in our region.
Because we want to give Wellington groms this great opportunity and to send the best team we can to Gisborne, we’ll be setting up a Give a little page in the coming days to raise money to help the team get there to fly the Wellington region’s flag. We’ll have further details in the next couple of days when we launch, but we would like to ask in advance that if you’re stoked on giving our groms the best opportunity for their development as surfers, and helping them have a blast, then we would greatly appreciate any donation you’re willing to make.
