RAGLAN'S Navryn Malone and Natasha Gouldsbury of Levin surfed to victory at the 2017 Sticky Johnson Primary School Championships held at Gisborne over the weekend.

The two surfers were joined by Mt Maunganui duo Tao Mouldey and Sophia Brock, who won the Year-6-and-below boys’ and girls’ divisions.

Surf of up to a metre provided the perfect platform for the final round-robin heats and the finals.

Malone — son of 1998 national champion Chris Malone, who grew up in Gisborne — was in exceptional form all event. In the final he posted a 13.17-point heat total to outclass his opponents.

Te Kauwhata Kauwhata (Whangarei) got a slight edge over Mahia surfer Riku Gordon, while Jack McKenzie (Waikuku), stepping up from the Year-6-and-below division in 2016, was fourth.

Levin surfer Natasha Gouldsbury got the nod over Ava Henderson (Christchurch) in the Year 7 and 8 girls’ division, posting an 11.23-point heat total.
