PSC CONTEST 4

GUNNA / 21 OCT 2018

Back to first car-rie. We took advantage of the same banks at Gunna for Contest 4, the left rip bowl out the front and the right off the rocks, 2-4ft light onshore, but super-fun waves again all day, the sun shining and beers flowing.

Cal again ripped the lefts apart and took out the Open Division, over Hayden, Lachy and Sean. We also saw the grommets Jake, Willem, Taj, and Archy shredding the right, making the waves look like overhead drainers. Full results at liveheats.com/psc

Thanks again to our main commitee - Lachy, Joel, James, and Rod for their continual work keeping the comps running smoothly.

PSC CONTEST 3

GUNNA / 6 OCT 2018

After the Winter break the club got back to work with a great day of pumping waves at 1st car park Gunnamatta. With a rip-bowling left and a fun right over the channel, the Strait turned it on with sick waves all day.

Cal Nicolson took advantage of the smoking lefts and took out the Open Division, pipping a firing Sean McDev, young gun Charlie and Big Mike. Other division winners included Hannah Trigger, Jake Pancic, Charlie Lucas, Nick Wallace, Luke Featherston and Jamie Reichelt, and Jackson Trotman

SPRING UPDATE

SEPTEMBER 2018

Welcome back to Season 2018. It’s been a cold winter with plenty of swell, and a handful of highlight days on the beach breaks in between. Hopefully you’ve been getting wet.

We are about to launch into a very busy second half of the year. The Victorian Teams Titles is this Sunday 9th of September at Bells Beach. PSC will be taking a strong team and encourage any members who want to support to come across and join in the fun on the beach.

Three aggregate comps, the Australian Boardriders Battle Qualifier (at Phillip Island), three Supergrom events and two Presentation events will see out the remainder of the club’s season. Bring it on.

A massive thanks to our sponsors and supporters. Please reciprocate their generosity by using their businesses and services where possible. The contributions they make keep our local surf community ticking and ensure a successful season each year.

Look forward to seeing everyone down the beach, Lachy.

CONTEST 2 2018

GUNNA / SAT 26 MAY

Saturday 26th May saw the club return to competition at Gunnamatta's first carpark. A breaching Southern Wright whale signified the start of heats as perfect 2-4ft waves greeted competitors. Despite the freezing early temperatures, the morning surfing saw plenty of highlights.

2017 club champion Adam Morris showed his skills in round 1 with the day's highest heat total of 17.10 points out of a possible 20, but was unfortunately eliminated in a later quarter final. Past champions Calum Nicolson and Mikey Barber also set the performance bar high as the waves improved throughout the day on the lower tide.

The growing Women's, Junior Girls and Cadet Boys divisions all relished the user friendly waves and stand-out performances from Hannah Trigger, Brooke Fischer and Will Watson saw them take the respective victories.

As the tide filled in through the afternoon the waves slowed down slightly but excellent surfing prevailed and the marquee divisions raised the performance level as daylight began to fade. The senior men's division saw Cal Nicolson take a narrow lead over his competitors early and he couldn't be caught. Unfortunately the back to back heats took their toll and he was 4th in the Open final which was taken out by an energised Mikey Barber over Sean McDevitt and Lachy McDonald.

The day was one of PSC's best in recent seasons with great waves and weather all day. Spectators and members gathered at the PSC clubhouse afterwards for presentation.

Division winners included Mikey Barber, Hannah Trigger, Willem Watson, Charlie Lucas, Brooke fischer, Cal Nicolson, Shan Creasey, Craig Burton, Ronnie Gorringe and Jamie Reichelt.

The club now enters its winter break with a recommencement in early October. PSC Supergroms will also re-start then.

VIC SURFTAG TITLES

RYE / SUN 18 MARCH

The Peninsula's Womens Team have taken out the Victorian leg of the Australian Surf Tag Event in epic conditions at Rye Back Beach, smashing Torquay with 29.69 pts to 10.33 pts. Former Winter Olympian Hannah Trigger posted the highest score in the final, 10.5. The team including Hannah, Vee, Claudia, Nina and Charlee charged the big and chunky conditions. In the mens division, Torquay (94.34) finished ahead of PSC (88.34) with 13th Beach Boardriders (48.47) finishing third and Peninsula B fourth.

"We are stoked to be going to the Australian Championships next month", President Lachy McDonald said. "Winning the Women's division and coming second in the Men's is a great effort from our club so we will have a big squad heading to the Gold Coast. We were one good wave short of the win today in the Men's and look forward to testing ourselves against the country's best".

AGM x SINGLE FIN COMP

SATURDAY 27 JAN

On Saturday 27th January we held our Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the 2017 season on the beach at Rye. View meeting minutes

As soon as the AGM was complete we jumped into our annual Single Fin Classic, which was contested in clean 3-5ft right handers at Rye Back Beach, on a perfect, 30 degree day. View photos on Facebook

Many members took the opportunity to compete in multiple divisions and maximise time in the excellent conditions and guys like Tex Walker and Max Burton capitalised with strong finishes across the board. Highlights included:

- Coombsy's wipe-out on a well-overhead bowl.
- Max, Macoy and Charlie picking the most modern outlines and riding them like conventional shortboards.
- Lance's over froth - can't get the guy down!
- Gonga, Daz and Ev ripping on the shortest boards they've ridden in years.
- Rory Thomas' switchfoots and Shan Creasey's soul-arches.
- Nath Barrett combining rad style and some solid turns to beat us all and take his first open win.
- Having a beer with everyone who came back to the clubhouse.
