Lennox Longboarders, May 17

Another deferred round. Postponed from Sunday April 9, we waited for Easter to pass, then Sunday April 23 brought us some waves at Lennox Main, with sunny skies and an off-shore wind. Though the abating swell from Easter still packed a solid punch on the very straight banks at Lennox Main.

25 members turned up to surf the round. Standout longboarding was from Will Petrie winning the Firsts in trying conditions and the speed and skill of Aaron Coopersmith, 2nd in the Firsts. Some of these waves were just make-able on our 9FT-plus boards.

Best of the ladies was Lee Middleton 3rd in the Seconds.

Thanks to Craig Leete for some pics on the day. Thanks to Will Petrie again for the BBQ catering and George Leslie for tallying and round coordination.
