Introducing the team captains for this weekends Sands Paul Baxter Shield. Yes fine specimens they are…n’t…. Team drawn by darts this Thursday night at the Sands from 6pm. So come down to check it all out.
The Baxter Shield is day is all about having fun, wacky outfits, bad surfing being rewarded, a few cold ones and grooving to the DJ on the beach. So we are stoked to announce that Softlite and Mullet Surfboards have jumped onboard as event sponsors.
Both companies will be providing us with a stack of boards for competitors to use at this years event. There will also be spare boards for others to use and mess around on whilst they are waiting for their heat. We will also be raffling off a new board on the day.
The 2017 Sands Hotel Paul ‘Baxter Shield’ will be held on Saturday October 21 at Maroubra Beach. After having a year off we have moved the Baxter Shield to the warmer month of October in 2017 with a new revitalised format!
This contest is an open pre-paid surfing event with limited amount of surfing spots available that go on a ‘first in, first served’ basis. (Keep in mind that there is only a maximum of 64 competing surfers on the day and we currently have well over 150 members at Southend – so get in early to guarantee your spot.
