Great stuff StormBaySUP - I have to say, I enjoy reading the updates from Tassie!
My better half's pushing for a mid-year trip to the apple isle next year - definitely keen to get amongst some cold water waves, smash a few refreshing beverages and meet some of the local SUP Tasmaniacs!!!

Round 2 of the Summer Surf Series was run in the clear waters of Pirates Bay this morning after the committee decided to relocate yesterday. The crew were blessed with a clean chest high shore break to show their skills with some very high wave counts and as with the round 1 comp some very close scores. Both Ben and Mat with their first foray into the club competition made the best of wave selection and managed some very good scores. A tech race was also run which tested the lung capacity of a couple of the paddlers. A few of the competitors also enjoyed the famous seafood basket at the fish market on the trip home. There will be some photos posted later for your viewing pleasure.

The paddling never stops in Tassie

5 Mile Beach Down Wind Run

Conditions are looking pretty good for the 5 Mile Beach downwind run this Saturday morning with a 55 kmph westerly forecast. If you're in and need to car shuffle we will see you at the Dodges Ferry School @ 10.30 for an 11.00 start at the 5 Mile Beach car park.

5 Mile Beach Downwinder
After a few late withdrawals the crew set off in a NW gusting to 50 kmph, it wasn't a dream run, but there were plenty of sliders up to 200m to be found in the tricky cross chop which also provided plenty of swims for everyone. Kudos to Lisa and Sam on their standard SUPs who showed the ones on race boards they can have just as much fun in the conditions.
Next club flatwater paddle 19/1/2020

We are revisiting the Huon Valley and conditions will be better than our last paddle there. 10.30 @ the Franklin boat ramp for those that need to car shuffle to the start at Huonville boat ramp at 11.00 and why not stop at Willie Smiths for an apple juice on the way home.

Couldn't of asked for better conditions at this mornings Huon River paddle, no breeze and sunny sky's made for an easy cruise apart from a bit of headwind for the last k, nothing like the last time we paddled there. James, down from the NW coast and Geoff, from Merimbula showed their lack of local knowledge and keen to push a bit harder headed down the eastern side of egg Islands only to miss the cut through and added an extra 10k to the 8k paddle when they had to paddle back upstream to the cutting.
Coming up is round 3 of the surf series 2/2 and next flatwater 23/2
big thanks to Roz for the pics.

Round 3 Summer Surf Series
Today's comp was run in what could be described as less than perfect conditions, but the committed crew didn't let that stop them from putting on a display that impressed the judges with some moves never seen in competition surfing before. Once again there were some very close scores that will see it go down to the wire with round 4 to decide this seasons champions, Also a special mention to Janet who made a guest appearance to take out the longboard division.

Club Flatwater Paddle 16 February

Long Beach Sandy Bay to Cornelian Bay, no guarantee it will be a cranking Downwinder, but there should be some wind assistance. Meet at Cornelian Bay car park just north of the playground at 10.30 for those that need to shuffle with 11.00 start at Long Beach.

Perfect morning for the Clubs Lewisham Loop Paddle, clear warm waters, just right for those that were keen for a swim as there were plenty of swims and great to see some more female paddlers having a crack, looking forward to seeing them again and more at future paddles. Huge thanks to Roz & Mick for coordinating the media and water safety boat.

Summer Surf Series

Less than average conditions greeted competitors for today's final round of the Summer Surf Series, but we know that anyone can surf well in good waves, it's much harder to excel in bad waves and excel they did. The conditions did improve as both the tide and wind dropped which saw some high wave counts as well as high wave scores that put the judges under pressure as there wasn't much to seperate them. In the end Steve Clark took the trophy home with consistent scores over all rounds and a win in the final heat to be the clear winner.
Steve Clark 14,420
Dave Smith 12,800
Mick Hawes 12,640
Geoff Harling 12,610
Chris Wells 12,520
Mat Steele 12,480
Tony Leitch 11,525
Ben Stockwin 11,212
Peter Genders 10,672

TassieSUP Winter Classic + Australian Cold Water SUP Championship

With the current restrictions we have now pushed back the event and are hoping to run it in August or September, but we can't lock in the date just yet, but don't worry the water will still be cold and this will also give you extra time to source that new board and for some extra training.
To our sponsors, we realise business hasn't been as good as it could be lately and understand you may not be able to support us this time round and thank you for your past support, if you do have a bit of room left in the budget and are able to support us that would be very much appreciated.
