The charity of choice is the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and their conservation projects.

The inaugural TSBW LJ Hooker Softboards event has had a couple of forced postponements owing to the Covid outbreak in January and unmanageable TC Ewa swell last Saturday.

However, the latest forecast for this Saturday 12th March is highly promising with 4 – 6ft waves in the chest to overhead range. An SSE swell slowly abating with light SW to SSW breezes in the morning turning SE in the afternoon at Currumbin Beach the venue for the one-day club challenge.

Competition kicks off at 8am with a new Club format ” Rapid fire system” using one wave per surfer only, double points for the nominated power surfer. It’s a non-elimination cumulative points system held over two rounds with heats of 40 minutes duration.
