Enright shows talent with comp win

SNAPPER Rocks shredder Kobie Enright proved the area is still an incubator for surfing talent at a Duranbah competition over the weekend.

The 12-year-old came away from Ocean and Earth Teenage Rampage with a win in the 13 and under girls' division.

In the final she battled fellow Snapper-ripper Alyssa Lock, with the pair separated at the end by only one point.

Enright said the win caught her by surprise.

"I didn't expect it at all. The waves were small and it was windy," she said.

"I like it when it is kind of bigger, like three or four foot."

The sponsored rider, who gets her surfboards and wetsuits supplied, has her eyes focused on her future.

"I want to win a world title," she said. "It will involve a little bit of training, going in comps and having fun and travelling.

"I probably surf every afternoon if it's good or even if it's bad."

For now, Enright has a trip to Hawaii to look forward to.

"It's just for a holiday with one of my friends," she said.

"And we are going to stay with the Parkinsons.

"We are going to surf everywhere we can."
