Win­ning de­but by new­com­ers

Joondalup Weekender - - Weekender -

WIN­NING gold and sil­ver on de­but was quite a suc­cess for Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club.

The club de­buted two un­der-19 male surf boat teams at this year's Surf Life Sav­ing WA State Cham­pi­onships on March 24-25, with the Vik­ings crew “blitz­ing the field” to win gold just ahead of the Storm Troop­ers.

“It was a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of skills from crews and sweeps with an equally awe­some re­sult for the club,” pres­i­dent Stu­art Clarke said.

“The ex-cy­clone swell came through in the morn­ing to pro­duce some of the most pow­er­ful and spec­tac­u­lar waves we've seen at Scar­bor­ough.”

Clarke said the two teams had only formed in the mid­dle of last year.

“The boys have been com­mit­ted from the get-go and all de­serv­ing for the win,” he said.

He said the per­for­mance was “a great lead-up” to the Aus­tralian Cham­pi­onships, which this year will be held in Scar­bor­ough from April 14 to 22.
