The Lennox Longboarders held their March club round on Sunday at Lennox Main beach with thirty members competing.

Conditions were good to start but a strong NE wind kicked in later.

A herd of grommets had an expression session at the halfway mark, bringing a smile to all their faces and those of the seniors looking on. 

Winning the day was Will Petrie, who handled the small conditions well and pulled off some good moves. 

Eleanor Robertson was the best in the ladies. 

There was also a welcome to new members, Brendan (dad) and Tasman Cahill.


Firsts: Will Petrie, Brendon Cahill, Rob Rye, John Eddy, Dan Naughton (did not surf second round).

Seconds: Matt Durkin, Jake Ryan, James Foster, Tasman Cahill, Emily Simmonds.

Thirds: Eleanor Robertson, Jess Cohen, Tom O’Dwyer, Grant Ryan, Angus Gover.

Fourths: Gary Alford, Greg Gover, Terry Kay, Una Durkin, Meg Smith (didn’t surf second round).  

Sixths: Andrew Thomas, Roz Brown, Veronica Silver, Luca Barriskill. 

New for women

On International Women’s Day the WSL announced a couple of new features they will be adding to their events.

The first Championship Tour (CT) event to award equal prize money for women will take place this April in Queensland, where the WSL will also launch a global beachside engagement program for girls, called the Rising Tides – WSL Girls Program.

At each women’s CT stop the WSL will offer clinics in order to inspire the next generation of female surfers. 

There will also be a new content series this year called the WSL Heritage Series that will feature notable women in the sport – trailblazers, record-breakers and vanguard activists that have helped pave the way. 

The series will include well-known figures like Byron Shire’s Pauline Menacer.
