Smokin’ surf greeted an enthusiastic group of SOUL surfers on Saturday for competition number three.
The banks along 13th Beach had been firing all week making for some great surfing for the first week of the school holidays and the third competition of the year was held at Boings beach break.
The word went out to arrive early and the car park filled quickly. Surfers were able to contest in uncrowded water on near perfect waves under sunny skies. It’s not often you get to surf in mint conditions locally, sharing waves with just three or four of your SOUL mates.
The surf held up and delivered great waves for most of the day giving everyone the opportunity to surf at their best. A midday swell drop and wind change provided some interest for finals. Overall great conditions, great weather, great surfing.
The next competition is Saturday 14 May and it’s not too late to join the club for the 2017 season.
The SOUL club is a great family club that encourages and welcomes individuals and families at any level of longboard surfing. Whether you are new to the area or have been here a while why not come on down to our next comp day and see what we’re all about.
