News

The comp is on! 13 Sep 2018 @ 16:57

Hi All The comp is on....

We have borderline waves on Saturday but I am hopeful to be able to run some heats over the high tide. Over night into Sunday the swell and wind is due to pick up.

So if we don't have contesterble waves on Saturday, we will go on hold until Sunday which will definitely have big waves all day but could be a little tough in the wind!

Meet in Whitesands car park for 8am on Saturday for registration, briefing will be taking place at 8.30am. Hopefully (swell permitting) first heats will start at 9am.

Look forward to seeing you all on the weekend!

Forecast 10 Sep 2018 @ 17:02
