A SURFING starlet was celebrating victory at the Celtic Cup international, returning to East Lothian with four medals.

Members of the Christopherson family made the trip to Bundoran, County Donegal, to represent the Scottish team in the competition against their Irish counterparts.

The event was last held in Thurso in 1992, with Scotland coming out victorious.

And at this year’s competition, Dunbar Grammar School pupil Clover Christopherson (pictured right) was the star of the show.

The teenager won gold in the under-16 girls’ event, while also medalling in the women’s bodyboard, women’s surf open and under-18 girls’ events.

Meanwhile, a great weekend for the Christopherson family, who run Coast to Coast Surf School in Dunbar, continued as Sam finished second in the longboard, while Diane was third in the women’s open.

It was not enough, though, to help Scotland retain their trophy, as the hosts claimed the Celtic Cup.

Clover was over the moon with her success and told Courier Sport: “I am so happy and I was shocked and delighted that I won.”

Lisa Monteith, who helps coach the Coast to Coast surf development team, added: “We are so proud of Clover; she really surfed well and has a lovely style.

“We hope it’s inspiring for girls surfing in East Lothian as she’s the first Scottish under-18 girl to win an international surfing comp and she surfs at Belhaven.

“A massive congratulations to the Irish team who won the overall competition, thanks to the Bundoran Boardriders Club and Irish Surfing Federation for hosting the competition and many of our surfers.

“We look forward to inviting them to Thurso next year and taking back the Celtic Cup.”
