Sarah wins Billabong Pro

CABARITA Beach-based surfer Sarah Mason has won the Billabong Pro Junior Women’s at Manu Bay, Raglan, defeating her older sister Airini Mason in a high-scoring final.

Sarah’s third wave in the final was an outstanding and decisive nine-point ride with final scores of Sarah Mason on 16 to Airini Mason on 11.25.

Yesterday’s result ensures talented sisters Sarah, 15, and Airini, 20, now comprehensively lead the ASP Australasian Pro Junior Series ratings with Sarah first and Airini in second. “So stoked to win today,” said Sarah Mason.

“It’s always good to come back home and compete where I started my surfing life and the waves throughout this event have been really good.”
