Twomey stands up

Stirling Times - - Wafl -

KAR­RINYUP stand-up pad­dle­board­ing (SUP) surfer Chris Twomey has proven him­self among the best in the state.

Twomey is the state cham­pion in the over-50 men’s cat­e­gory af­ter a win at the WA SUP Ti­tles in Man­durah on the week­end.

He com­peted in two other fi­nals events, fin­ish­ing third in the open and over-40s men’s di­vi­sions, all in chal­leng­ing con­di­tions with waves about 2m high.

“That was a mas­sive week­end of waves and weather,” he said.

“To claim the state ti­tle ahead of some qual­ity op­po­si­tion is a truly great feel­ing and I look for­ward to the chal­lenge of the Aus­tralian SUP Ti­tles in Queens­land.”

Scar­bor­ough sis­ters Mon­ica and Sil­via De Araujo fin­ished sec­ond and third re­spec­tively in the open women’s cat­e­gory, while Kar­rinyup’s Darron McNab was sec­ond in the over-40 men’s.
