2015 Makin homes peel pro

 For the first time in over a decade the Peel Region will be hosting a major Open Surfing Contest. Sanctioned by Surfing WA, the Makin Homes Peel Pro presented by Star Surf + Skate is scheduled to coincide with the best possible swell window for the Mandurah area. The event will be run on the weekend of 25th / 26th July.

EVENT FACEBOOK PAGE HERE

Mandurah Board Riders club will be hosting the event and are extremely excited to announce that local businesses Makin Homes and Star Surf + Skate have come on board as major sponsors.

 The 2015 Makin Homes Peel Pro proudly presented by Star Surf and Skate will see the state’s best surfers compete in any one of the four selected venues approved by the City of Mandurah Local Council.

Depending on conditions, Gearies, Avalon, Egg Farms and Melros could all be utilised.

Up to 150 surfers will be converging on the beaches of Mandurah for the event in a hope of securing the inaugural title and a piece of the $5000 in cash and prises up for grabs.

 You can listen to other Major sponsor Coast FM or join the Makin Homes Peel Pro Facebook page for updates and info in the next 10 weeks leading up to the contest.

 The Heat draw will be done a little differently to usual contests - contestants will be drawn from a hat to allocate heat times for the first round of competition. The heat draw will be happening at Cobblers Tavern at 6:00pm on July 24 to kick off proceedings and make it interesting for all competitors.

You do not have to be a Surfing WA member to participate in the event and this will allow a big chunk of the local Mandurah surfers the ability to test themselves against the state’s best surfers in their own back yard.

Entries are now being taken through Surfing WA’s official events page HERE  or click on the link through the events Facebook page.

Trigg Junior Board Rider Presentation Night

 

Star is very proud to sponsor WA's (Australia's?) largest junior board riders club - Trigg Junior Board Riders. Last Saturday evening the TJBRC guys held their end of year presentations and wrap up party.

The night was MC'd by Mogga from 3D Fins and featured a Q+A with Mark Rotham (Onboard Industries) and Wooly from Star Surf.

As well as supporting the club with prizes throughout the year, Star sponsored and provided prizes for the blue ribbon Under 18 Boys division.

 

 

Massive respect is due to all committee members and parents who constantly volunteer their time for the club. Without you guys, there wouldn't be a club at all, so WELL DONE :)

Congratulations to ALL TJBRC members on a great year of surf comps and special congratulations to the finalists in each division! Also congratulations to Star team riders Dexter Payenberg, Fletcher Llanwarne, Archie and Moses Le Grice and Alex McGuffin on making the finals in their respective divisions!

Surfing WA State Titles - Rottnest

Star is very proud of our young team riders Harry Mcpherson (above) and Jake Edwards (below) for each putting in a solid performance in the Surfing WA HIF Pro Am event held at Rottnest two weeks ago.
The boys performed very well in the solid conditions with Harry taking out the win in the blue ribbbon Men's Open division and placing 4th in the Pro Junior and Jake placing 3rd in the Pro Junior.
Well done guys!



Mandurah Board Riders

Mandurah Boardriders held their second senior contest for the year in solid swell at Gearies, the first contest for the boardriders at this venue in some years. The decision to split the club into the Juniors being run in the Summer and the Seniors in the winter has paid dividends. The contests now only run in optimum conditions and plenty of old names have been returning to the club with the level of surfing being phenomenal.
The club had six girls fight it out in the Open Women division and Star's Skipper Van Peer dominated the event to take it out in the challenging conditions first up in the morning.
The Pro Junior division was a hard fought result with two more Star team riders being separated by 0.5 of a point. Eventual winner Ace Van Peer ended up beating out the rampaging Harry Macpherson. who was fresh off a win the day before at Rottnest. Harry has been inform after a month long sojourn to Indo and it showed in the level of his surfing.
Harry continued his form to a second place finish in the Open Men’s, behind new comer to the club Tom Ronald who surfed consistently all day including the only successful barrel of the day.The Masters Division was taken out by Mat Wilson and the Senior Men’s was won also by a new comer to the club in Lee Jones.

 

City Beach Surf Riders Juniors

 

 

On the last weekend of June , the City Beach Juniors picked a gap in the weather and scored fun waves at their local break. There was some awesome surfing going down with Star team rider Alex McGuffin (above) taking out the win and another Star team rider, Moses Le Grice, scoring a perfect 10 for a long barrel ride (below). Thanks to VISSLA for hooking the groms up with some epic prizes!
