Vanuatu surfing team finished on a positive note at the 2019 Oceania Surfing Championships which ended in Savaii, Samoa yesterday.

Female surfers Zaridah Taleo in the girls U18 division alongside Sera John in the open category finished in third position respectively.

Oceania Surfing Federation President, Carl Probert was impressed with the sport development in the Pacific Region which will put the sport in a better position come the 2023 Pacific Games in Solomon Island.

“Running the Oceania Cup and growing the event over the next few years will put surfing in a good position to be included in the sports programme for the Pacific Games being held in the Solomon Islands in 2023.

“ It is important that we bring the Oceania nations together to participate and show that there is a pathway for our young surfers,” Probert said.
