Competitors trade blows in punchy four-foot waves at Rainbow Beach

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 June, 2013 : - - For the third day on the trot, competitors in the Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles were greeted by long running lefts at Rainbow Beach, Bonny Hills.

The first round of the Over-35 Men kicked the morning off with a handful of competitors trading blows in the punchy four-foot waves. Craig Davies put on an impressive performance in the first heat locking in a pair of mid-range sevens to take a convincing win over local surfers Ryan Chelman and Bernard Latimore.

Steve Mills followed suit in the second heat of the division. The Byron Bay surfer locked in a heat total of 15.34 to snatch a narrow lead from Curl Curl’s Jason Livingston.

Continuing on from the solid form he showed on day one of competition, Richard Smith synced his heat strategy with the flow of the ocean when he rode one of the barrels of the event. Richard was duly rewarded with a 9.83, one of the highest single wave scores of the event. Yesterday’s standout surfer Rob Page finished in the runner-up spot.

Debbie Allan impressed the judges with a solid display of technical rail surfing in the Over-35 Women. The Canton Beach surfer was able to lock in a heat total of 11.33 to take a convincing win over Vivienne Cresswell.

“The level of surfing in this event has been particularly impressive over the course of the last three days,” said Surfing NSW Head Judge Nick Pearson. “The waves have allowed competitors to perform multiple technical turns and carves. As we make our way towards the finals on Saturday, we expect the standard of surfing will continue to be exciting and impressive.”

The Australian Skin Cancer Clinics were on hand booking in surfers for bulk-billed appointments and giving competitors a range of free promotional merchandise.

On Saturday, a doctor from the Australian Skin Cancer Clinics will be onsite giving competitors and spectators a free skin cancer checks. Live scores for the Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles are available through Surfing NSW’s Facebook page. Tomorrow’s event will kick off with the round one of the Open Men.
