Old guard riding high
Competing in the divisions for those aged over 35 and even older, the longboard was back in fashion as some old tricks were shown off.
Contest director Rob Nedwich was among those who took to the surf and he said that he was pleased with how the opening two days of the titles had progressed and that the conditions had provided a true test for those entered.
He did have one complaint, though, about yesterday's heats.
"It was a bit of test of fitness for a couple of competitors, yours truly included," he joked.
"The waves were good though and there were plenty of good waves for everyone in each heat."
It's expected that the best conditions on offer for today's heats will be in the morning before the semi finals begin for the over 35, 40 and 60 divisions.
