Excellent conditions and clean one-metre waves greeted the 36 members of the Lennox Longboarders for their April club round at Lennox main beach.

There was standout surfing from Tommy Steele, who displayed the art of ‘ten over the nose’ riding with style, and Aaron Smith (2017 club champion) returned to carve up these waves with awesome turns and more nose riding. 

Emily Simmonds also relished the conditions and helped to welcome five new ladies into the club: Lee Middleton, Jane Birch, Reggie Grew-Mc Elligott, Fiona Duncan, and Jess Owen.

The junior grommets had another surf expression session at the halfway point.

Vouchers from Lennox Surf went to Grant Ryan and Tasman Cahill.

Results: 

Firsts: Aaron Smith, Tom Steele, Terry Kay, Jake Ryan, Lee Middleton,  Tasman Cahill.

Seconds: Rob Rye, Matt Durkin, Jane Birch, Grant Ryan, Brendon Cahill, Nathan Mckenzie.

Thirds: Craig Leete, James Foster, Andrew Thomas, Jess Owen, Nick Mitchell, Eleanor Robertson.
