Some great stories emerged from the NSW Country Surf Titles but perhaps nothing more inspirational than the four Mollymook teenagers rowing at their first carnival who out rowed crews more senior than themselves to claim GOLD in the Under 19 female boat race. The teenagers consist of Eliza Green, Mia Garin, Kyla Wall and Chloe Scott. They row under the super competent coach and mentor Marty Drysdale.
