Ciaran Carolan

Over 150 surfers competed in the 39th Byron Bay Malibu Classic held at Wategos Beach in late April.

The longest-running single-fin surf competition in Australia was held in glorious weather and contestable waves.

Ray Gleave, who recently had his 60th birthday, turned back the clock to win the open men’s and Byron local Roisin Carolan won the open women’s.

Nic Brewer won the Men’s Logger. Sam Ticknor, who is a new member of the Malibu Club, won the junior boys’ and did great in the old mal.

Luca Groh took out the junior girls’. Isabelle Braly won the women’s logger.

Jack Norton displayed great style in winning the open old mal and he also won the McTavish board in the raffle.

Special mention must go to Ben Hutchings, who won the over-70s. The standard of this final was phenomenal.

Another highlight of the weekend was the 25th Future Legends event held by Max and Von Pendergast.

All of the $15,000 raised this yeargoes back to local charities and community groups.
