Kristi Zarifeh: Canterbury Surfing Champ for 2010
The O'Neill Canterbury Womens Champs was held on Saturday 6 March in clean 2ft waves at New Brighton Beach. A field of 32 women entered 4 divisions and a stand out star emerged in the Open and Junior events. Seventhwave team rider Kristi Zarifeh (from Sumner) ripped her waves to 1st place in the Open and Junior division, having combined scores from her best two waves and more than doubling those of her fellow competitors. As the conditions deteriorated in the afternoon with a strong onshore breeze Kristi still found high scoring waves doing floaters and re entries that impressed the judges. Pic by Mark Stevenson.
