He started to demonstrate what was possible on a wave when he started to charge each wave he caught. Wow, what a difference when he starts moving and turning his surfboard, things start happening. Floaters, forehand & backhand re-entries & snaps are a new found love.

Kiarn Barry

 
Kiarn started surfing at 8 yrs of age on a 6’6 softboard, progressed to his dad’s 5’11 very quickly and started tearing it up. Kiarn is the youngest of our ‘GOTO’ Club members, and had to show everyone that he was just as good and if not better than the other members.

Kiarn’s claim to fame was when he pulled into a left hand rip bowl only to disappear totally out of sight and emerge at the end of the wave claiming it. Must be something in those genes!

Kiarn is a dedicated gymnast spending over 16 hours a week in the gym, he is a level 8 gymast; in 2011 he was the QLD Level 5 & Under State Gymnastics Champion, and in 2012 made his first QLD team for the level 6 & Under. Kiarn competed in the National Gymnastics Championships in July 2013 as a member of the Queensland side coming away with a Bronze in Pommel, Silver medal in Vault & Gold Medal in the Teams Event. Kiarn is also a qulaified Junior coach with Gymnastics Australia and Qualified Judge for Gymnastics Asustralia. His dedication to gymnastics has certainly assisted his progression in surfing.

Though both of the boys do not get as much water time, they have a desire that shows when they hit the surf each weekend. Kiarn has already mastered the “OCCY” backhand snap and has a natural eye for reading different waves.
