SURFING


We are looking to get more Members active in the SLS Surfing competitions, especially our Cadets. To compete, you need to have 25 hours of Patrol / WS by 31 December (you will have hours from last season from 1 January to go towards this). The Branch Champs will be on at Maroubra in Feb '18 and State is on in winter and a great trip away with some winter swell to compete in.

The State Champs for 2016-17 season were held a few weeks ago up north of Newcastle in perfect waves, Dave Finnimore got 4th in the Final in both the Shortboard and Longboards in the 40-49 years.

Let’s get Bronte back on top in Surfing this year ! contact Dave if you want to know more 0401 638 126

CADET BRONZIES PASS THEIR TEST

Great to see a group of our former Nippers all pass their Bronze Medallion last Sunday. For the first time in many years, the assessment was held at Bronte rather than North Bondi, where the cadets all passed with ease ready for the Summer ahead. Many thanks go to trainer Andrew Ugarte for all his time and effort, and we hope to get a new group of Cadets through in the next month or two to join them. Thanks to Sam Stone and Nigel Harvey for being Assessors on the day.

Congratulations
