Happy New year, Well everyone should be over Xmas now and getting ready to go back to school or work.
Next weekend (Sunday 22nd) we kick off our club year by running a sign on fun day, as part of the day we are hosting the Windansea Single fin comp at Moffat Beach, we will have the bbq going and swell is forecasted as well. This will give some crew the chance to showcase their talents riding old pre 1985 single fin boards. Some people regard these boards as a work of art, some as a lot of fun to ride and some as a piece of crap but whatever your view is as long as your out there having fun that’s what we want to see next weekend, good luck to all that are having a go.
The PA & MA Bendall committee has already had a number of meetings to organise this years event held over the Easter long weekend. If any members have someone in mind that may want to have a stall with food or other surf related merchandise or may want to sponsor the comp, please contact Tim Carter or myself.
Good to see Reef Heazlewood again with another great result at the World Junior Titles held at Kiama N.S.W . Reef finished with a 1/4 final spot, I am sure he wanted a better result after getting runner-up at the last World Titles held at Oceanside U.S.A last year. That’s the way comps go sometimes.
Last weekend was the Burleigh Single fin comp and club member Hayden MacDougall made the semi finals, this was an awesome result for Hayden with a lot of big names competing in the event. Past Windansea member and World Champ Joel Parkinson took out the final held in 3-4ft waves.
The Windansea Surf Club presentations for 2016 will be held on Sunday 5th February after our club comp. Not sure on the venue as it depends on conditions where we are surfing. Our Club Vice Prez Dale Faddy has donated his time to make all our Division trophies. Dale is saving the club a considerable amount of cash as well. Good on ya mate.
Speaking of the Faddys, they are all on a road trip to Narrabeen for Skye, as she is competing in the National Junior Rip Curl Finals. Good luck down there Skye.
Our talented bunch of grommies are showing they are stars of the future with some great results recently.
We had Elijah Magner take out the u/12 Wahu final at Ann st and also Hunter Andersson not only winning Sunny coast comp also winning the u/8 final on the Gold Coast as well. Cam MacDougall finished 2nd u/14 at the Ann st comp and Cale Miller came away with a 4th in the u/8 final as well. These kids are showing so much promise and we all love watching them progress and improve year after year, Well done guys.
With the new year kicking off all members need to pay there membership before the end of January, just go onto Surfing Queensland website same as last year. If you have forgotten password just contact Tim or myself. If you are joining Windansea for the first time, you must be invited to join by a current or past club member. Then you will have to complete 3 months probation attending 3 meetings & 3 club rounds. The club will then decide to vote you in as a member of Windansea Surf Club.
Thanks All Tez.
