With the swell gods taking a break, the September comp is now set for 20-21.
Here’s hoping that with the tides right, some 3 to 6ft walls and barrels will be on offer on the globe’s greatest REEF.
Heaven knows that contestants in all three divisions are hot to trot. After all, the world titles are on the line and every member is a chance for crowning in 2014 (presentation night is set for Saturday 29 November).
So stay focused, energised, waxed up. If the waves do cooperate, all the action is set to be streamed worldwide.
In the meantime, Shoes members are thunderous in their applause and support for our wonderful sponsors: Dr John Murray, Only Organic Foods, PCC Surfboards, Lipman Construction, WJ Partners, Tengirri Surf Charters, Cronulla Travel, Little Parrott, Pure Sea Surf Shop, Cronulla Surf Design, STC, Leo Payne Sausage King.
And just a reminder for your diaries: the October contest dates are 4-5 and 18-19.
