On Sunday the 26th of October the Mandurah Board Riders ran their inaugural paddle sign up day at Falcon Bay.
The day was designed to encourage all junior members to come along, have some fun and make some new friends as the club look to improve the way we run the summer series.
The day was a huge success with nearly 70 members coming along and signing up and joining in the fun. Paddle races were held for divisions from Under 8, Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16.
There were two courses set up one for the older age groups and a shorter course for the juniors. With the girls getting in and fighting it out with the boys in all age groups, all the kids did an amazing job.
Mandurah Board Riders run their junior divisions over the summer months to ensure their sole focus is in helping these younger age groups improve their skills and introduce them to competitive surfing.
The first junior contest will be this Sunday the 2nd of November at the Dawesville Cut’s, Pyramids beach.
Due to the large amount of competitors and new members, it is a strict meeting time of 7:00am in the car park at the beach. Late entries will not be accepted once the heat draw is drawn up for all the age groups.
If the turn out on the weekend is anything to go by it is going to be a big summer series and a highly competitive one with some great little surfers joining up.
