A Word From Winny 

Hi Guys,

We are on the down hill slide to Christmas but the last 6 weeks of the year is flat strap, we have just wound up the NSW Junior Titles in the Illawarra, the groms got to spend a couple of days on Sandon Point, always puts a smile on the dial, a big thanks to Jeremy Barnett for his help as well.

Last weekend the first ABB at Warriewood saw North Steyne edge out North Narra, Dimmy looked like the proverbial cat that swallowed the canary.

This weekend a Woolworths Grom Comp at Cronulla, Surfing NSW CEO, Luke Madden stoked to get his feet on home soil.

Next weekend, the ABB southern qualifier in Kiama, hoping for a southerly swell and NE wind, will bring the Bombo amphitheatre in to play, a dream location for surf commentary.

Ride The Wave Program

Surfing Mental Health 360, will connect over 35 board rider clubs to a Surfing NSW surf-inspired Mental Health Organisation, the Good Human Factory.

The aim is that together, they will use surfing to help young athletes gain the skills and knowledge that underpin good mental health, resilience and well-being.

As part of the program, athletes will attend a workshop where junior influential club members will be selected to design and roll out eight practical and inspirational interactive “Ride the Wave” workshops to their communities. Each workshop is followed by a surfing experience session with 27-year-old NSW pro surfer Cooper Chapman. 

So get that insurance and affiliation sorted, have a cool yule, stay safe, remember – the worst day surfing beats the best day working.
