Wainui Girls Shine on home turf Nationals

18 Mar 2018 Posted by

Jasmine Smith and Abby Logan have been paddling together probably since before they could walk. Coming together again for for the Open Women's Board Rescue in their last event of the SLSNZ 2018 Nationals done in spectacular fashion in the peaking swell and late afternoon light. Heading into the medal presentation suspense was building as placings had not been confirmed - GOLD to our girls!!

Earlier in the day Jasmine had also paddled into the bronze in the Open Women’s Board Race, Abby very close in 4th.

Earlier in the day down the beach at Waikanae the U16 Girls had absolutely smashed the Board Relay final with super strong paddles from sister combo Ava and Stella Smith backed up and brought home by Saffi Vette - Go Girls!! This same machine team also placed 3rd for the bronze in the U19 Women's Board Relay.
