The Lennox Head All Girls Surfriders had another fabulous day for their August club round.

‘We were treated with peaky, 0.5-metre waves, clear water, and very little wind until the finals. It was great to have a wave that suited all levels, allowing everyone to get some awesome rides,’ reported Ebony Sanataria and Maz Pentecost.

‘Those who were lucky enough to score a set wave definitely made the most of them. Numbers were down for sign-on so all divisions had a heat then straight to finals except the Opens, who had 3 heats, semis then finals.

‘Those who were lucky enough to score a set wave definitely made the most of them.

‘There was some excellent surfing by a number of the girls, great to see Marika Ilic make another semi in Opens and Christina Dunne in the Longboards cracked two fabulous set waves in her heat. Congratulations to the junior beginner girls who went ‘out the back’ and caught some of their best waves so far.

What does Australia Day mean?

Another Australia Day. Another divisive polemic about the date, the day, and its meaning. Those who seek to change the date argue that 26 January signifies the beginning of Britain’s invasion of Australia and the violent expropriation of Aboriginal lands.
