Competition No.7 of 2019 & Updated Pointscore

We had one of the best competitions this year with near perfect 3-4 foot waves on a great bank with offshore conditions until the southerly buster that hit the Junior and Open Finals.

What that meant was that the highest scoring heat of the day was actually the Masters Final.  The Masters final was a hard one to judge.  The Masters were also bless with a heat where the waves just did not stop coming.   There are 300 plus photographs on the club's Facebook Page: Garie Boardriders Inc.

The results:


Loving the nice inside reformers:

1. Taisha Johnston
2. Evie Johnston (13 waves in 20 minutes)
3. Kalani Hibbert
4. Summer Stewart


Four 1st for Cruz this year but with 5 competitions held Jarred Kidd holds 1st in the Point Score.  Remember Juniors your best 6 competition results count in the final tally and with 3 competitions left this year attendance will allow you to drop lower results.

1. Cruz McKee
2. Mitch O'loughlin
3. Clinton Browne
4. Jarred Kidd
5. Taj Kidd
6. Zane Kidd


In the soup that was a fully chopped up result of the southerly buster everyone struggled to find a really good one but Chris McKay was the clear winner, finding 2 good wave, amongst the chop.

1. Chris McKay
2. Ian Spencer
3. Steve Drysdale
4. Kane Mood
5. Brett Daintry
6. Cruz McKee


It was a great final with a 10 second to go "buzzer beater" a taking it out.  You always love it hearing the hooter just after you get to your feet, but you alway hate seeing someone doing it when you are already standing on the beach.

1. Brett Daintry
2. Ian Spencer
3. Chris McKay
4. Brett Hardy
5. Steve Drysdale
6. Don McCaw


1. Hans Bendle

Where are our over 60's this winter?  Get a new 4x3 each and get back down here!

Pointscore Update

You can download a copy of the Pointscore Spreadsheet here: 2019 - Garie Pointscore - All Divisions.xlsx.

The whole results depend upon attending at least 6 competitions from the scheduled 10.  We have held 5 from the scheduled 7, 2 dropped because of bad conditions but 3 remain and with several good surfers having dropped a competition achieving 6 at the end of the season will mix up the current rankings.

Fathers Day 1 September - Competition No.7 moved to 24th-25th August 2019
