Surfing honour

Nikki Van Dijk of Phillip Island placed equal 9th at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach on Tuesday, April 22.

Van Dijk reached round four where she was eliminated by reigning ASP World Champion Carissa Moore.

The Minister for Sport and Recreation Damian Drum met Ms Van Dijk at Parliament House and says, “Not only is she a world class surfer, she is a great role model and inspiration for all young female athletes.”

Nikki’s younger brother Joe last week claimed a silver medal at the International Surfing Association 2014 World Junior Championship in Ecuador.
