Saturday May 6th 2017 Main Beach, Merimbula
The 31st annual Malibu surfing contest
After a beautiful sunny week the contest day dawned grey and cool. The waves, however, had picked up overnight and a steady 1metre swell was rolling in. The wind stayed away all day which kept the waves glassy.. even though they were a little hard to find on the low tide. By mid afternoon as the finals came around, the sun came out and the grand finale was held in brilliant sunshine. A special visitor dropped in to present the prizes and everyone was there to cheer on the winners. Once again John and the hard working crew from Merimbula Sailboard Club had pulled a rabbit from the hat and chalked up another successful event.
30 years and still going strong. Thank you Domald.
