Preso’s Report
Three OBMC surfers progressed to the finals of the 2017 Crescent Head Malibu Classic. Angus Mackay was the best performer of the trio, placing 4th in the Over 50’s Logger, while Graham Judd finished in 6th place in the Over 55’s and Angi Smith 7th in the final of the Over 35’s Ladies.
One result I neglected to publish in last month’s newsletter was that of Graeme Carroll’s 2nd place in the final of the ‘Big Boys’ event at the Byron Bay Malibu Classic back in April. Sorry big fella. Congratulations on a great result.

 

May contest report.
Some fun waves were on offer for the postponed May contest held on June 4 but as usually happens when a comp is postponed, the numbers were down considerably. With ‘Sharpy’ once again warming us all up with his delicious pea and ham soup, all sixteen competitors were raring to go. With only three round one heats it was going to be a very quick day, so to speed things up even more, contest director Garry Halliday came up with the brilliant idea of combining the firsts and seconds in the final, along with the thirds and fourths together so only three heats were required in the second round also.

Birthday boy, Mitch Conwell was a short priced favourite to take maximum points for the day but in the final he must have had his mind on the awaiting chocolate cake. It was certainly one of the most enjoyable finals I have ever competed in (besides getting my bum smacked) with each surfer going wave for wave in a very competitive, yet super friendly, encouraging manner.

Gavin Edwards claimed his first final win since joining the club, continuing his rapid improvement over the past 12 months. Luke Dalton, another whose surfing has improved dramatically lately, edged out Garry Halliday to take second place, with Mitch in fourth, Garth Willison in fifth and yours truly in sixth place.

The girls again showed the men how it’s done in the minor finals with Deb Stening winning the thirds from Ron Stockings, while Regan Russell had one of his best results to claim third place ahead of Daryl Anderson, John Rodney and Alan Copelin.

Olivia Edwards continued her recent good form to win the final of the fifth’s from Artie Kopylov in second place, Mel Sharpe in third and Rob Baranic fourth place.

See you all next Sunday!

Cheers,

Craig C.
