As has been the case for most of the season, local rising surfing star Jake Hagan was in dominant form at the Geraldton Boardriders Competition at Flat Rocks beach in Greenough, cleaning up with wins in multiple divisions. On a day when the conditions were good enough to compete, the top eight for each division vied for glory in the finals. Although Hagan has been the one to beat all season and came out in his heat with a score of 13.67, it was looking like he would have some tough competition, as Marley Mardon qualified with an impressive score of 16.17 in the other heat. When the final four came around, it was all Hagan, as his scores of 8.50 and 8.83 were more than enough to seal his win in the open men’s division. The open women’s category was dominated by Lani Grant, the only competitor in the division to poll a score of six or higher with her 6.67 and 7.50, giving her a final score of 14.17 and the victory. In the juniors, it was once again Hagan who cleaned up with a score of 16.8, winning by 5.87, the biggest margin out of all the categories. The cadets finished with a tie between Kerby Morris and Finlay Homer, who both finished the finals with a score of 13, Morris pulling a 7.50 and 5.50 while Homer had a 6 and 7, but Morris came out as the winner in the tie-breaker. The skill clearly runs in the family as father of the dual star, Deon Hagan, won in the grand masters division with a score of 14.23. The masters division saw a close battle for the top, as Wade Greenaway won with an 11.17, just 0.5 above second place.
