Southern Telegraph - - News - El­lie Honey­bone

Se­cret Har­bour Surf Beach Board­rid­ers held their sixth com­pe­ti­tion event last Sun­day with off­shore 1m-high waves pro­vid­ing a chal­lenge for the young club mem­bers.

Stand­outs in­cluded Bella Rut­ter, Camp­bell For­rest and April and Maiko McPher­son.

Mur­ray Ja­cobs took out the open men’s event and is the cur­rent leader for the sea­son, with Craig Hop­kins and Steve Bar­ton also win­ning their di­vi­sions. The next com­pe­ti­tion will be held on Oc­to­ber 18 and will be one of the last for the year.

Club media of­fi­cer Doug Kitch­ing­man said a sin­gle-fin retro day was planned for Novem­ber, fol­lowed by a sea­son wrap-up and an awards pre­sen­ta­tion.

“It has been a pretty or­di­nary year as far as con­di­tions go but we man­aged to plan seven events and our riders have done re­ally well,” he said.

The com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted a good turnout and club mem­bers ar­rived early to help set up and get the event un­der way.
