End of Year Presentation 2019

Presidents note, 2019 presentation –

There is something so inspirational about being in a room full of women and girls who all share the same passion and vision….

Surfing is to everyone here is not just the ocean, the beach, riding waves, but it means something a little different to each and every one of us …..it can be about community, a sense of belonging, connection, with ourselves and others, it is Authenticity, the ocean is a place where you get to be your true authentic self, it can be about movement, motivation to get out of bed in the morning, it can be about competition, to strive to be the best you can or it can simply be about fun and laughter, spending time with good friends, it can be about just getting you through the day, being good for your mental health, we always feel better after getting out of the ocean ….. it is nature at its most raw and beautiful, it is inspiration, just look around this room, stop and listen to the different stories of the people present today, you will find inspiration everywhere…….

Whatever surfing means for you, this is a day to honor and celebrate it, to share the stoke and to come together, to say thank you for another year of being part of this awesome club, of friendships, fun and learning.

I am grateful to have spent another year with you all and want to thank each and everyone of you for your love and support and laughter throughout another amazing year.

I would also like to take the time to thank our committee for 2019, without each and every one of you this club could not run, month after month, year after year, so thank you, you all know who you are.

I would also like to thank our major sponsors who support us year after year,

Club Round Results – October 2019

Originally Sept club round was postponed due to incontestable conditions, but luckily we had the 5th Sunday to have our round. We were met with small but clean waves in front of the bus shelter- made all the better by the sunshine. There was some great rides, especially from the beginners who really pushed themselves. It was unfortunately messy by the time the finals rolled around, but the girls really made the most of it to get some great waves. The day ran really smoothly thanks to all those who helped out, with a special mention to Cory, our exceptional tallier, Lindzi on the flags and of course time, our wonderful drone pilot volunteer, Tim.
Thanks girls and see you next round.

Bonny Hills Surf Trip 2019

BONNY HILLS SURF TRIP Friday/Sat 12th-13th October 2019
All Girls Surfriders were very well represented this year, with 11 current and former members; Mel, Maz, Kerry, Jan, Carol, Caz, Liz, Trish, Ebony, Marika and Marg all enjoying a fun weekend and challenging surf.
We almost filled the over 55 longboard division with Maz, Mel, Jan, Liz, Caz, Carol and Marg all competing. Mel took out 1st place closely followed by Maz 2nd. Liz and Jan made the final as well.
Mel usually only surfs her SUP, but can get on a longboard and absolutely rip. Maz shows us what one can achieve by surfing every day in all conditions. Well done girls!
Trish Giltinan (ex president) 5th in the mini-mal Final over18 ( just a wee bit over)
Ebony came 5th in open shortboard in a hotly contested field.
The waves and paddle out were very challenging, so well done to all competitors.
Check out Ebony’s pics of Mel and Maz on AG website.
The Saturday night entertainment was up to the usual All Girls standard with a hula dancing/singing performance to “Pearly Shells” accompanied by Kerry, Maz, Ebony and Marika on the ukuleles. Lots of laughter, with some very serious hula dancing by Jan and Liz.
Some of us have been travelling to this contest for 10 years and it really is a wonderful bonding weekend. We share a house and all have a great time.  All are welcome and there are divisions for all ages and levels.
Congratultions to the MNCGS – they put on an amazing contest and are so welcoming and nurturing of all the contestants…”it’s not always about winning” and everyone gets to surf at least twice.
I (Marg) have to say that All Girls has been (and is) the most amazing club.  All the friends I have now have come through surfing and the club.
So together we’ll keep the spirit of All Girls and the joy of surfing alive for many years to come.
