Preso’s Report

After the disappointment of having to postpone our first contest for the year due to a lack of swell, ‘Huey’ certainly looked after us the following week at the Central Coast Charity Longboard Challenge up at Catherine Hill Bay, providing us with 2 metre plus waves for the event. Surfers in the early heats on the low tide found the going a bit challenging but things improved as the banks got a bit more water on them with the rising tide.

With several of our more fancied surfers arriving late after ex OBMC member Adam Hillard’s 40th birthday celebrations the previous night, (and one in particular having to stop at Nth Entrance for a sleep, the 2018 Ultimate dipstick winner may well have already been decided before we’ve even surfed a comp) the back end of the contest was stacked with the OBMC’s best surfers.

Trailing Wallarah, Shelly and Central Coast up to the half way mark, the comeback commenced in earnest with the OBMC falling just 3 points short of the Wallarah Longboard Club to claim second place overall with Shelly Beach in third place and Central Coast Malibu Club in fourth spot.

The standout surfer on the day (besides Gary Sing’s manditory head stand) was in the final heat, the ladies, with our very own Sally Oman from Sal’s Surf School,  giving it to the competition. Sal charged every set that came along, including some of the biggest waves of the day. Sally had never ridden a 9 foot mal before and last surfed with the OBMC about nine or ten years ago on a mini mal. Sally was bringing cheers of encouragement from all clubs’ members amongst the crowd with her dominant display.

Once again the OBMC holds the original OBMC vs SBMC trophy which is proudly on display at Sol Scissors Barber Shop in Ettalong,  which now also incorporates the Big Boys Boards stock. This charity event was originally held in 1998, just between OB and Shelly and we retain the original trophies between the two clubs. Wallarah entered the contest in 2008 while Central Coast joined in last year to make it truly a Central Coast Challenge with all four Central Coast longboard clubs now involved.

The day raised approximately $3,000 which the Wallarah club will be donating to Prostate Cancer research. Thank you to all those who competed and especially to those who made the trip up to Catho to support us.

The 2018 Annual General meeting will be held this coming Sunday, 18th February at the Ettalong Bowling Club commencing at 2pm. Everyone is welcome to attend and any financial member can nominate for committee positions.

January’s postponed contest wasn’t a complete waste of time with 22 new members and 4 returning members signing up to surf the 2018 season. Seven ladies and possibly a few more from Sal’s Surf School have signed and we will be holding an unofficial heat for them after the end of round one each comp to acclimatise them to contest conditions. The January contest will now be held on March 4.

We also welcome five new sponsors for season 2018 with WSG Group (plumbing, electrical & roofing), John Wilson Carpentry Services, Sal’s Surf School, Sol Scissors Barber Shop, Ettalong and The Critical Slide Society (TCSS) supporting us this year.

Cheers, Craig C.
