Freya Prumm Drops a Ten in the Women’s Final of Gold Coast Sailor Jerry Surftag in Pumping Conditions at Duranbah.
3rd April 2017
D’Bah Boardriders continued their dominance with a massive win over North End Boardriders to take out the third and final qualifying event of the Sailor Jerry Surftag in pumping conditions at Duranbah Beach. It was the first time North End and third place Alley Boardriders had competed in the Women’s Division of the Sailor Jerry Surftag with all three teams qualifying to the Australian Championships. D’Bah’s team of Tahlija Redgard, Freya Prumm, Grace Styman-Lane, Brodie and Amiya Doyle will go to Sydney looking for their third straight Australian Title.
Freya Prumm was the standout for D’Bah scoring 21.17 in the final that included a perfect ten-point ride on her Powerwave. “It was epic to score my first ten in my career at this event, especially in pumping waves,” Prumm said. “The wave itself was so rippable, I am fairly sure most of the chicks would have got the same score, it’s something I’ll never forget. Teams events are so fun but you definitely feel some weight because you don’t want to let anyone else down. Sharing the win with friends in great conditions, then being offered free pizza is about as good as it gets for me. Cheers to Sailor Jerry and all involved in putting on such an epic weekend. Yeahh D’Bah.”
