Week 5 high performance winners

Our High Performance winner for the Girls in week 5 is Ziggy Mackenzie @ziggy_alohaa congratulations. 

This edit told us a lot about this young lady and we liked what we saw, great style and flare coupled with courage and her future looks bright.

Her dad Jake has Drifter surf shop and cafe on the Bukit and has been a supporter of the Blast Off but we will see if there’s something she needs that we can help her with.

This week‘s High-Performance award for the boys was the toughest and tightest week yet and some amazing videos were received in all of the divisions but in the 14s, 12s, 10s, there was a real standout in each and when you considered the age difference all 3 were on par so we awarded all 3.

Kai Hall @kai_hall2007 boys 14s, Dylan Wilcoxen @alldaydylan boys 12s, and Ethan Fernandez @ethan_fernandez40 boys 10s.

Congratulations to all three of these future surf stars, you guys are on fire!

She brought the stoke!

This week’s STOKE AWARD goes to 8yr old Mana Cazimero!! @mana.cazimero is from Kauai and in our girls 8s division. We can totally feel Mana’s stoke for surfing and to stoke her out we’re giving her a prize pack from our mates at @hurley 

Stand out entries!

About

Another ripping Indo based grom who is on fire 🔥 @philipduke_ showing us what he has been up to the last year, and boy he sure has improved and for his froth we are giving him a prize pack from our mates @driftersurf 

Back in BL’s day there was a South African pro surfer by the name of David Malherbe and he was a friend of BL’s and as it turns out he is Josh’s @joshherbie2020 dad and we can see the pedigree in him. 

Now seriously have a look at the size of the fish on the second wave Josh is riding, wild times so he seems like a good kid to send a Sharkbanz too thanks to @sharkbanz

The girls are ripping!

At Blast Off we Love watching people froth out on surfing and this young lady is 7yr old Yvie Winter Buckley from Sydney’s Northern Beaches doing her thing and capturing it with her GoPro.

Yvie stoked us out and put smiles on our faces so we are sending her and her dad @isaac.buckley24 a prize pack from our mates at Sunbum @sunbum_oz and @sunbum 

The GoPro POV is such a great way to view surfing and especially for coaching and seeing close up what you are doing.

12 year old Ocea Curtis @ocea.curtis from Lennox Head in NSW, Australia is HIGH PERFORMANCE RIPPING!!

Stoked to have our friends @boostaus gifting you an iPhone and 12 months connectivity! 

Just quietly, we’ve noticed we have a few more boys entering than girls this year…. and we feel sure all the girls out there are sitting on some epic footage they’re yet to share! Remember this is all about STOKE and PROGESSION! 

Can’t wait to see your clips!
