April Club Round Results 2019

What a glorious day to hold our April Club round!! We were blessed with sunny weather and fun waves. The surf was clean and consistent for the duration of the meet and provided some 3 foot faces. The low sand bank produced many paddling challenges for surfers, but a shout out to the Senior Intermediates and Jnr Intermediates who pushed the boundary and were rewarded with rides from out the back. Chargers!

March Club Round 2019

Wow! What a day! It was great to kick off the year at our March club round and it was awesome to see so many new faces. The day started a little slower than usual as we had so many people to sign on, but it was great to have so many willing hands to help with set up.
The conditions were favourable in the morning with the incoming tide and slight offshore wind, and even when it turned onshore and messy in the afternoon, we still managed to get some great waves. The two banks made the day flow smoothly with all divisions getting some high scoring rides. The coaching team really had their work cut out for them with all our new beginners and the changing tides and conditions, a big thanks to those girls on the beach and in the water for putting in 110% and making our beginner crew feel safe.
Thanks to those who stood in and took up jobs they don’t usually do to help, and to those who did quite a lot of judging, you really made a massive day a lot easier! You rock!
Beginners are reminded to shadow a more experienced judge after they’ve surfed as this is the best way for you to learn and pick up some tips for your own surfing too!

A big thanks must go out also to David, Olivia’s dad for helping with the towing of the trailer as all of our trailer girls were off in the Maldives surfing. Thanks Olivia for volunteering and organising “Dad”!!

Great day All!! Look forward to next month, till then, see you in the waves

February Club Round Cancelled

 
After much deliberation and assessment of forecasted conditions, we decided it was unsafe for us to hold the February club round on Sunday 24th February.

We had hazardous surf warnings as well as gale wind warnings and as safety is of utmost importance to us, we decided it was better to not run. There is no 5th Sunday in February so our next club round will be on the March 24th.

Enjoy your month and see you for coaching day on the 9th March.

Thanks,
Melissa and Jane.

November Club Round Results

Our final round of 2018 was blessed with some of the best surfing conditions we have had all year with clean and offshore waves. With the swell increasing during the day to create amazing waves the girls made the most of it.
A special mention to our Senior Beginner girls, who braved the rising swell by paddling out the back to be rewarded with some of their best waves. Well done!
Thank you to everyone that made All Girls fun loving for 2018, hope to see all members fancy dressed next weekend for a special end of year gathering.

Name: Nicci Meredith

Age: 39

Born: Vancouver Island, BC Canada

Lives: Lennox Head

Occupation: Bookkeeping and Pizza Shop Business Owner

Division: Senior Beginners

Other Hobbies/Interest: Travel and Mumming and Socialising

What made you start surfing:

My good Friend was surfing all the time and it sort of made me go “ya…I want a piece of that”. Also I have been living in this Surfing Mecca for 15 years…. I decided I better start taking advantage of what the ocean has to offer here.

Who are your surfing Idols:

Well I don’t really follow competitive surfing, however I have just been on a surf trip to Sri Lanka with my girlfriends who surf in Lennox. They inspired and encouraged me the whole trip as I was the most inexperienced, so I would have to say that they are my surfing Idols! They know who they are

Fav Wave:

I loved Peanuts, and Lazy Rights in Sri Lanka. At home I love Lennox Beach, Flatty and Arrawara Point.

Dream surfing Scenario

To retire from the Mon – Friday slog so I can choose to surf whenever I wish.

Surfing goals:

To get out there as much as I can, to keep improving. I’d also love to try surfing the point on a small day sometime in the future.

Surfing makes me feel: Alive, Happy and Proud!

October Club Round Results

October Club Round started with a nice light NNW breeze and some tiny fun rides for the girls on both banks, before the wind shifted to a very breezy SSW by mid-morning, which coincided with the rising tide, making us switch back to one bank. Conditions deteriorated to make it challenging for the finals, with not much more than a shore break to catch, but everyone gave it their best shot. Beginners, both Junior and Senior, enjoyed having the coaching team in the water with them, with lots of hoots audible from the shore. Well done to everyone who took part on the day!!

Which DIVISON do you surf in: Soul Surfers

OTHER HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Photography, Getting out into Nature and hanging with my Fam

WHAT MADE YOU START SURFING? I guess my Dad originally when I was a kid but I had a huge break for years until in 2013 a friend won a custom surfboard in a raffle and coaxed me to join her to start surfing with her…. the best arm-twisting I have ever received.

WHO ARE YOUR SURFING IDOLS? hmmm, besides my fellow soul surfer sisters… I’d have to say the usual suspects… Tyler Wright and Stef Gilmore

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE WAVE? Pub Innies, Flat Rock and Arrawarra Headland

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM SURFING SCENARIO?
My dream is to one day get barrelled in a super nice tropical loco or have enough courage to surf Lennox Point…either/or, I’m not fussy 😉

WHAT ARE YOUR SURFING GOALS FOR 2018?
I’d like to surf as much as I can because currently it’s not enough and also get my kidlets out there with me.

“SURFING MAKES ME FEEL…” alive, grounded and sometimes just totally pooped after a long surf ;P

September Club Round Results

1 to 3 ft conditions to start off the day. Junior and Senior Beginners had a great 1st round on the north bank while Longboards kicked us off with some nice long rides to the south. Great turn out for the day.
The easterly wind did come up as the tide ran out making conditions less desirable for the Opens and Junior Intermediate, but in true All Girls style there were many laughs, lots of support and a slight offshore breeze at the pub to finish the day.
Yeeeeew!!
