The event drew a lot of support from a large local following, with friends and families of competitors turning up to show support for their children and friends.

Fiji’s National Head Coach, Ian Portingale commented on the hard work and efforts of everyone who took part in the event, their improved surfing levels and his hopes for Fiji’s future.

“The kids’ ability to read the waves and negotiate the conditions was encouraging to see and a treat to watch. The future of surfing in Fiji is looking bright and these competitions are a great opportunity to show this,” he said.
