Wax up everyone – the start to the 2018 tournament season on the Reef that Rules is looming!
The February dates are 10-11 and the backup weekend is 17-18.
The new season is going to be better than ever, with reigning champions Matty Cook, Brett Daintry, Jarvis Earle and Blake Sawtell expected to be under heavy pressure to retain their titles.
The surfing performances in all four divisions were the best ever in 2017 despite the weather and swell conditions containing contests to just six.
With the wave gods assuring us that they will be more accommodating this season, then the action in 2018 will be even more heavyweight, dazzling, filthy!
What’s better, the Annual General Meeting agreed to introduce a new contest system that will allow opportunities for increased competition.
The new system will be trialled in Round 1 of the 2018 season.
The aim is to start each contest no later than 7.30am.
As in previous years, ONLY surfers who have filled in and signed their 2018 Membership Form and paid their fees will be allowed to compete.
The 2018 Membership Form can be downloaded here.
The dates for the 2018 season are also available on the Competitions page of the Sandshoes website.
Season 2018 will continue to be staged in honour of the Club’s Patron for Ever, the late, great and sorely missed Dr John Murray.
