Monday, 12 August 2019
VIS Future Talent athlete India Robinson won the Open Shortboard title at the 2019 SAE Group Australian Surf Championships over the weekend.
Having honed her forehand on the long right-handers of the Victorian Surf Coast, India felt right at home in the punchy right-handers on offer throughout the Open Women’s final. Robinson shone in the stacked final, performing a combination of mammoth carves and snaps in the heat to muster up a solid 15.70 two-wave heat total and leave her closest rival and fellow event standout Dimity Stoyle (Sunshine Coast, Qld) requiring an excellent 8.51 wave score to take away the top spot. As a result, Robinson claimed the victory.
“This is such a good feeling,” said Robinson
