The Powerade Fiji Junior Pro at Sigatoka beach, September 3-5 2016, saw three members of the Vanuatu team take second place. This included Solwata Sista Serah John, who took out second place behind Australia in the finals.
Surfing requires commitment, something Serah John knows well. Serah is part of a group of young women leaders from Pango Boardriders, and is currently finishing her final years of schooling on the island of Epi.
Serah made the boat journey back to Efate with her host family, before flying to Fiji with the The Vanuatu Surfing Association squad for a week to surf against some of the Pacific’s best Junior surfers before resuming her studies.
