February 2023 Comp

2023 Opening Comp & Acknowledgment of Country Ceremony

Sat, 11 February 2023

This comp is COMPLETE

What a comp! What a good time!

Thanks everyone who made our first QBC comp for the year such a success.

A perfect day started with a First Nations Welcome to Country and smoke ceremony hosted by Bush To Bowl , then straight into all the grom heats, finishing the day with a little shark scare in the u18 Girls final!

The Sunday uptick in the swell was pretty short-lived in a fresh west wind. It was contestable for the whole day though, and Uncle put on a solid show in the final of the A-grade with a vicious backhand attack, sending out a warning that he’s on for the 2023 gong.

A special shout-out to Dahlia who won our first U18 Girls final!!

Epic wins right here:

A Grade: Austin Ware
B Grade: Beau Alagich
40: Alex Mac

First Saturday of each scheduled month is contest day.

  1. If Saturday is CONTESTABLE, we WILL run.
  2. If Saturday is NOT CONTESTABLE, we will make a call if Sunday is an optional alternate contest day.
  3. On Sunday, we will make a call to run or not run.
  4. If Sunday doesn’t look better on forecast, we will schedule for the following available non-public holiday weekend. You will have to re-register for this.

If the following available weekend is not contestable, that month’s contest is cancelled.

Conditions are always changing so we need some flexibility.

We WILL run the comp if conditions are contestable, even if it might be better the next day.

If you can’t surf on alternate days, you should contact Gumby on email or Instagram before 8pm on the night before the contest starts.
