YOUNG surfers showed their talent when the Rip Curl GromSearch Series hit Scarborough.

The third round of the series ran at Scarborough Beach from October 5-7, featuring some of the country’s best junior surfers.

South West surfers dominated the event but some locals shone, including Trigg’s Jack Mickle who placed third in the boys 14 and under category and Skyla Tothill, of Sorrento, who claimed third place in the girls 14 and under.

Wembley Downs surfer Lyla Macpherson and Floreat’s Jesse Siedmiogrodzki each finished fourth in the girls and boys 12 and under competitions respectively.

The series next heads to South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula.
