CONTEST 1 2018

RYE / SAT 24 MARCH

Despite a shakey start in the morning weather wise the Peninsula finally turned it on late morning with the offshore kicking back in with 4ft plus sets at Rye Back Beach for the rest of the day.

It was a pleasure to watch proceedings in what was the best conditions we've seen in a while. Taking out the Open Division was ex champ Caiden Fowler over Calum Nicolson 2nd and Joel Wookey 3rd, with Hannah Trigger taking out the Womens.

Our next contest is scheduled for 4th/5th of May.

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.
