Finally, we have had the ocean kick in with some long-awaited waves for the Sunny coast. The PA & MA Bendall saw some of the best waves we had ever had for this comp. It was another huge weekend for the Club, and as always, the club members got together to run one of the best amateur run Surfing Contest in Australia.
Windansea Surf Club would like to thank all our Sponsors that supported this event, without them getting behind the PA we would not be able to run it at the high standard that it deserves.
There’s a lot of photos that were taken by both professional and non-pro photogs that we are sorting through to make available to everyone so stay tuned.
THANK YOU ALL THE SPONSORS.
Also, a thank-you to Sunshine Coast Council and Cr Tim Dwyer for the connection of onsite power to Moffat Beach.
Well done to all club members who competed as well, with strong results in all divisions. The conditions really turned on for Finals day with the standard of surfing thru the roof. Having Jet ski support for competitors was also very popular. Ben & Wade put in a huge effort over the long weekend, well done guys.
The addition of the Old Mal Surfing pairs was also popular and we may look at adding their division into the comp format next year.
Thanks to all Club Members who helped set up and clean up over the weekend, also was very pleasing to see all the Grommets do an Emu parade late on Sunday arvo picking up all the
rubbish and leaving Moffs just how we found it. CLEAN.
WINDANSEA COMMUNITY SURF FACILITY.
Last Week Sunshine Coast Regional Council voted in favour of our application for a Community Surf based Building to be located at the end of Buderim St ( Ann St ). Currimundi. Cr Tim Dwyer & Cr Peter Cox moved to have it presented to the other councillors, obtaining a vote of 8 to 3 for the building, even the Mayor voted in favour. Next step is State Government approval (fingers crossed.).
I would also like to mention that the support we have had from the Caloundra Mal Club and Disabled Surfers was a huge factor in Council supporting this proposal. Caloundra Mal Club President John Thurtell & Roger Todd are also members of the Building Committee and there support is greatly appreciated by all of us at Windansea.
Thanks for your time everyone, we have a club meeting tomorrow night Wed 3rd Currimundi Hotel 7pm.
Club comp this weekend, looks like more swell on the way as well.
