April Comp on this Saturday

We hope the Easter bunny was kind with plenty of chocolate and you scored some amazing waves up and down the coast across the school holiday break.

Following Maroubra’s mini tsunami/hurricane/cyclone in March, we are excited to bring you April Comp 2 proudly presented by @littlewarriorsgym
A quick reminder: you need to register to surf by logging in to your LIVEHEATS account, go to Southend Boardriders & choose “Event 2 – April 2021 Little Warriors Gym” before 4pm on Thursday 15 April.

All members including groms, note that even though you have signed up for the year as a member, you still need to register to surf in each comp that you’re entering, so we know who’s coming and can draw up the heats for the day. All divisions are full and we will be lucky to get all heats surfed in daylight, so there will be NO beach starts/sign ups

Conditions are looking pretty decent for the day at this stage with a small and growing southerly swell and light winds. Hopefully this should keep everyone from micro-groms to grand-masters frothing all day long! Add a few snags, the Little Warriors Gym set up on the beach for some serious ninja warrior action and you’ve got yourself a recipe for awesome.

TBC Micros will be meeting at the Southend tent early afternoon as the tide heads out but we will confirm that time ASAP

We can ONLY get underway on time with lots of eager helpers from 6am onwards when the tents, tarps and tunes go up, so grab a coffee and don’t be shy to get involved and help out!

Get excited peeps & see you Saturday!

Cheers

Southend

Final Comp for 2020

The October point score and last comp for the 2020 COVID year is scheduled for this Saturday, October 17 kicking of at 7.30am sharp. At this stage it’s looking like there might be some clean little waves to wrap up the season. Liveheats is now OPEN for members to register to surf on the day, so make sure you jump in before the 5pm cut off on Thursday at  https://liveheats.com/southendboardriders

The Cadet division will be dedicated to young club member Archie Perkins who sadly passed away earlier this year. We would love to raise awareness and have you get behind the Hearts4Arch Foundation. Their vision is to save the lives of Sydney Children’s Hospital cardiac patients by providing them with a mobile device that delivers accurate, personalised heart data to doctors, anytime, anywhere!  You can find out more here at https://www.hearts4arch.com.au/ or donate at Bandaged Bear

Once again in this COVID environment, we need to request that only competitors (and one parent/carer max) is at the beach, particularly in and around the competition area. All of the same COVID control measures that we had so far this year will still need to apply for this comp. The heat draw is set and published at  www.LiveHeats.com/southendboardiders and there can be no beach entries on the day for this comp. We will likely be surfing each division all in one block again however we will do the heart draws on Thursday night so please stay tuned……  Always be Yewwwwww!
