Bicton�s Alex McGuffin was fourth in an enthralling battle for the blue-ribbon 16 and under boys event, which was won by Yallingup�s Jack Thomas.

Perth�s metropolitan beaches delivered high performance two-to- three-feet peaks, which enabled competitors to display a full repertoire of committed manoeuvres.

Trigg threw up quality right and left-hand waves that were perfectly suited to both natural footers and goofy footers alike.

With sunny skies and highly contestable waves on offer for much of the October 9 to 11 event, Rip Curl events manager Mark Flanagan was again delighted with how the third event of the national series rolled out.

�We love coming to West Oz,� Flanagan said.

�We�ve got some great waves on offer and WA has been a location that has shown great support of the GromSearch event over the years.�

The five-event series will head next to Yorkes Peninsula (SA) and the Sunshine Coast (Queensland) after kicking off the series at Maroubra (NSW).
