Sunshine Coast’s Dimity Stoyle wins the All Girls Surf Showdown at Lennox Head
The 18th annual and All Girls Surf Showdown enjoyed great waves at Lennox Head today for the 18th annual and biggest All Girl event in Australia.
The blue ribbon Southern Cross Credit Union Open Pro division saw a high quality field attack the final and the result went right down to the final two minutes when Sunshine Coast Queensland surfer Dimity Stoyle found the days highest scoring ride posting an outstanding 9.0 score to take a narrow victory over Cabarita’s Airini Mason (NSW).
“I knew I required a great score on that final ride and the wave lined up really well and I sort of threw caution to the wind, went for some big moves and stuck them – I felt good when I finished the ride and even better when I realized that wave won the final for me” said an elated Stoyle after her win.
Stoyle picked up a handy $1000 for her win and she’ll shortly resume her competitive season travelling to South Australia for the Fantastic Noodles Pro Junior in July. ” It’s a fantastic event here at Lennox Head, the waves have been great and the standard of girls surfing all weekend has been amazing” added Stoyle.
The two other Pro divisions saw wins to 18 year old Newcastle surfer Phillipa Anderson
