The annual King of the Beach contest is fast approaching – and Shoes will again be taking on the other local clubs.
The pundits are working on a team of 12 competitors as you read this update. The squad will be announced soon.
It’s a one day event (either 14 or 15 August), and has a different format this year.
Each club can enter 12 riders, broken into two divisions – Group A and Group B.
Group A has 2 riders 18 and under; 3 Open and 1 over 28
Group B has 1 woman/girl; 1 14 and under; 1 16 and under; 1 35 and over; 1 40 and over and 1 45 and over.
It’s tag team style, with each single contest lasting 60 minutes.
The top teams after the heats will go through to the final.
There will be cash prizes, plus gear.
Sponsors are Triple Bull, Quiksilver, Carve, Willet and Gloria Jeans.
The Club will again pay the entry fee of $350.
We’re up against Garie, The Point, Sharks, Elouera and Christian Surfers.
Shoes contribution on the day, apart from two judges, is sausages, onions and bread rolls.
The squad will be looking to the biggest possible turn-out of member and family support!
Shoes will be there representing The Reef and its main sponsors – John Murray Dental Surgeon, Northies, WJ Partners, KJN Surfboards, PCC Surfboards, Puresea Surf Shop, SkullCandy, Gando Signs, Leo Payne Sausage King, Cronulla Surf Design, Greg Ferrow Plumbing, and NALCO
