Straddie Assault 2nd Place!

Our team of surfers and supporters travelled to Stradbroke Island last weekend for the Straddie Assault, one of the longest running team events in Australia. The weekend was a huge success and everyone who attended had an outstanding time.

Team moral was boosted in the lead up to the event and throughout with coaching support from team leader Danny Wills. Team spirit was high and Willsy’s involvement and energy clearly rubbed off on every surfer during the weekend. On Saturday the feature teams event was run and all our surfers did exceptionally well with the conditions on offer.

We were leading the race to the title a majority of the day with excellent wins going to Danny Wills, Tommy Boucat, Henry Phillips, Garrett Parkes and a stand out performance by Luke Stickley. Also adding to our score were Tom Millege, Kirsten Ogden both with a strong 2nd places and Mackie Walker with a 4th place. After a long day it came down to the last heat, Snapper had to win to take the title and unfortunately they did.

All our team can be very proud with an outstanding 2nd place. On the Sunday Garrett Parkes, Danny Wills and Tommy Boucat surfed the doubles event and put in a huge effort making it all the way to the semi finals where they were very unlucky to not make the final, taking out 3rd position.

A huge thank you to the supporters who attended, I think everyone would agree the support on the beach is very important to a successful weekend.

Thanks also to the Grinch for keeping everyone laughing all weekend. WELL DONE TEAM, GO THE BAY!
