Grass roots surfing is alive and well in Jeffreys Bay with three young surfers being selected for the Eastern Province Grommets Team that will take part on the SA Champs in Port Elizabeth during April.
Ryan Lightfoot seems set to follow in the footsteps of older brother Dylan and is the top seed for the U/12 division of the EP team. “I am very stoked to make the team and have been training very hard lately”, said an elated Ryan.
Zoe Smith also made the team and is also inspired by her older sisters, both of whom are successful competitive surfers.
Bernardt Pretorius completes the trio from Jeffreys Bay who were selected for the Grommets team.
The Grommet Games will be held in Port Elizabeth from the 5th – 8th April 2012.
