Surf Riders Club: Bronte’s Big Sister Problem

by Mary Van Reyk

How’s Bronte supposed to catch waves when she keeps fighting with her big sister? She always wanted to be just like Carrie, but now they are growing apart. Bronte wants to do her own thing, but Carrie thinks Surf Riders Club is lame.

Now Bronte is torn between her friends and her sister. Will she get it together in time for the Beachcrest Carnival surf comp?

Ava, Alex, Bronte, Janani and Molly formed Surf Riders Club to help each other practise, but it has quickly become much more than that. Whether it’s learning how to get barrelled, problem parents or annoying boys, Surf Riders Club are there for each other, no matter what.
