Good evening QRS QLS Rippers and members of the Greatest Club in the World,

September QBC Surfaid ”Makeawave’ Contest is complete!

Thanks to all the Gumby’s for helping out on the day. Huge shout out to Ra who manned the BBQ for 4hrs in the driving rain and still served up amazing eggs, bacon and sausages.

Congratulations to the 2010 rising star recipient Bryce Martiskan on his first and double points A grade win!!! So cool and the epitome of persistence. The contest was a special day for all as we raised a glass in honour of Steve ‘Teary’ Garth and everyone in the finals were on another level in his honour. The best ‘Garthback’ was the on the line and Lorne H had it in the bag until Bryce snatched it off him with his final wave to claim the prize purse.
Wave of the day was left in no doubt with Sammy P smashing a 9 with his forehand attack in his final. Groms are certainly coming of age!

Thank you very much Mick V for shooting the pics in less-than-ideal conditions. The legend continues and we all cannot appreciate it enough.

  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.
