Dead flat swell meant the postponement of the first round of the August World Title showdown.
The Reef that Rules was as placid as it gets so Guy Turner and crew had no other option but to call it quits.
The hope is that the second date – 25-26 August– will see barnstorming waves that will give every member in all the divisions the opportunity to cut loose.
The points tables for all divisions show that the charge for supremacy is an open house with three contests after August still to run.
Stay waxed up, loose in the juice, head space charged.
And remember: all surfers are candidates for the third Battle of the Reefs at Shoes in September in honour of Peter Townend and in memory of our Patron for Ever, the great Dr John Murray.
All members of the Shoes Family appreciate the support of the Club’s great key sponsors: Karan Murray,McGrath Cronulla Real Estate (Mel Hatheier), PCC Surfboards, Tengirri Surf Charters, Surf Trading Company, Triple Bull.
