The rain held off for the duration of the contest with the swell holding in as the tide filled up the banks on offer.

Club president Chad Pisani said that the day was action packed with Nathan Price taking out the main Opens division against some strong competition.

“The whole crew were ripping as always and in the finals it was Nathan who took the top prize,” said Chad.
“The swell held in there and the wind stayed light all day.

“A big shout out to Angel Apps who helped out and judged most of the day!”

In the Groms division it was charger Toby McGuiggan who placed first with Kai Atkinsan second, Kingsley Longo third, Christian Sheehy fourth, Gilligan Guascoine fifth, and Murphy Guascoine sixth.

In the Cadets, young up-and-comer Tye George grabbed gold, Jack Adkins spun into second, Tyler Sarmias boosted into third, and Jacob Plumber rounded out fourth.

In Juniors Hayden Pisani rolled the competition for first place, Yianni Paradisis finished second, Hamish Jenkins third, and Jack Adkins fourth.

In the main Opens final it was all-round shred head Nathan Price beating out a strong field with Kane Brewer coming second, Hayden Pisani third, and the guru Brad Jackson fourth.

The Masters were next to do battle with Brad Jackson bouncing back for first, ‘The Prez’ Chad Pisani slotting into second, Jeremy Harris third, Aaron Burke fourth and Darrel Apps fifth.

Finally in the Grand Masters Jeremy Harris conjured up a victory courtesy of some wedge riding wizardry with Darrell Apps second and Russell Sheehy third.

PSDB now head into their final round of the year with plenty of points on offer to crown some club champions.
