Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles ramp up at Bells Beach

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 May, 2014 - Bells Beach, Torquay, Victoria, Australia - The Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles has been officially opened for 2014 with a traditional ceremony on the culturally significant grounds of Bells Beach.
The annual event which crowns the top Australian Indigenous surfer, will feature some of the best surfers in the country including 2012 event champion Russel Molony (Central Coast, NSW), talented free surfer Otis Carey (Sydney, NSW), former WQS surfer Simon Knox (Sunshine Coast, QLD) and current Victorian Indigenous Champion Jordie Campbell (Sandy Point, VIC).
“Its all about getting out there and all the communities coming together down here at Bells. It’s a real fun event and to get the chance to surf Bells with only a couple of other guys out is great.” Said former champion Russel Molony.
“I’m pretty comfortable with surfing here now that I have been here a few years in a row. Before that I used to struggle here, my body was stiff and I was always cold but I’m definitely a lot more at ease with the wave. ”
Minister for Sport Damian Drum and State Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos attended the ceremony to welcome the interstate competitors to Bells Beach. First call for Round 1 will be made at 8:30am at Bells Beach on Monday for a possible 9:00am start.
The Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles is presented by VicHealth, Play it Safe by the Water, the Victorian Government & Surfing Victoria and Supported by Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-Operative, Wathaurong Glass, TeamUp, Surfing Australia, Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre, Be the Influence, Event Studios Australia, Surf World Museum, Telstra, CoastalwatchPLUS, Cancer Council Sunscreen and Nikon.
