Well another "Willett Johnston Partners Spring Classic" done and dusted. The day was dull, overcast and rainy, but at least we had swell, and got through the day with plenty of waves for all competitors.
Congratulations to all finalists, and in particular the winners of all divisions.
Many thanks go to our sponsors of course, without which there would be no contest, namely Willett Johnston Partners, Carverly Surfboards, Surfection, Carve, Heaven on Earth Therapies, Pacific Longboarder magazine, Fox Wetsuits, Vanimo Surf Lodge, Vestal, Luggage House, Komunity Project and of course all the good folk from "IMB Bank”.
Many thanks go to all of the committee, who put all of this together and all those members that helped on the day. The day was a success so until year, see you in the waves.
