The Sandshoes brigade did the club proud in claiming third place in the 2016 King of the Beach tournament.
The squad of Matt Mulder (captain), Pete Hvass, Cabo Halyard, Jess Horner, Jazmyn Turner, Charlie Chegwidden and Jetson Kuch were contenders from the opening round, giving plenty of heat to The Point, The Alley and Elouera.
The windswept conditions put pressure on every team rider, and ensured results were close in all three divisions.
The quality of surfing from surfers in all clubs was phenomenal, and the pointscores went down to the wire.
Shoes riders also nailed four of the six special awards: Matty Mulder claimed the Open Men’s, Jazmyn was Best Female, Jetson was Best Grom and Charlie the Most Improved Grom.
Massive congratulations to all the Squad, other Club members, parents, friends and family for wonderful support and an upbeat approach that added spirit to the way Shoes conducted itself and the on-beach buzz.
The Reef not only rules, but Shoes rules in its own way on the beachfront!
