Seren­ity rules at Den­mark

Joondalup Weekender - - Sport -

MARMION lo­cal Jack Med­land claimed two wins dur­ing a com­pet­i­tive con­clu­sion to the WA Long­board Ti­tles in Den­mark re­cently.

Af­ter an ex­cit­ing open­ing round in Yallingup in Fe­bru­ary, Med­land made the most of Parry Beach’s clean and con­sis­tent waves to se­cure both the Open Men’s and Open Log­ger State Cham­pi­onships.

“It’s been a great few days down here in Den­mark. This place has great seren­ity and the move to Parry’s has been amaz­ing,” he said.

“There’s been some great long­board waves on of­fer and I’m stoked to take the double win and I’m looking for­ward to the Aussie ti­tles.”

Swan­bourne’s Ge­or­gia Young surfed with poise and pre­ci­sion to claim her fifth Open Women’s State Ti­tle, de­feat­ing Duns­bor­ough’s Rachel Dawe, Perth’s Emily Gibbs and Den­mark lo­cal Laura McEwan for first place.

“It’s al­ways such an ad­ven­ture com­ing to Den­mark and I re­ally love this trip,” Young said.

A team of 31 WA surfers will now pre­pare for the Aus­tralian Surf Fes­ti­val, which will be held on the NSW coast­line in Au­gust.

Surf­ing WA events man­ager Justin Ma­jeks said con­di­tions on the week­end would of­fer a great base for the trav­el­ling con­tin­gent.

He said Den­mark mim­icked the con­di­tions the team could ex­pect to surf on the east coast.
