Our very own Miss Personality

CARLY Flood left an impression on anyone she met so it was no surprise that Coolangatta's surf girl won the Miss Personality award at the 2012 Jupiters Summer Surf Girl Award earlier this month.

The 19 surf girls from around the state voted for Miss Personality.

Ms Flood said she was overwhelmed to receive the award.

"It's a great program and we hit the $1-million mark we raised as a group," Ms Flood said.

Ms Flood said the surf girl competition was not a beauty pageant.

"I would suggest the competition for any girl… most definitely. The whole experience was amazing," she said.

Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club president Jim Purdon said the Miss Personality award epitomised the values that the club held.

"We are a family and we have a lot of families involved," Mr Purdon said.

"We are very much part of the community these days."

Mr Purdon said Ms Flood winning the award was a great effort and would help others in the club.

"We already have five girls putting their hands up for next year," he said.

"And the great thing is that they are helping each other to achieve that goal.

"I'm most proud of this personality award because to be judged by your peers is very good."

Mr Purdon said Ms Flood did a lot for the community and was even at the club on Wednesday night selling tickets for the "chook raffle".

Now that the surf girl competition was over Ms Flood's attention has turned to training as she aimed to compete at the world titles in South Australia later this year.
