Set your clocks forward Sunday

Friendly reminder going out to all Surfer readers that clocks go forward this Sunday 7 October, early morning before Patrols begin.

Last week’s edition incorrectly advised you to set watches back. Your editor has clearly spent too much of her life in the Northern hemisphere.

Regrets and apologies.

Your regular Surfer will be back next week will fuller updates on the weeks ahead. For now, a quick reminder of some key dates and deadlines.

Surf Races

Surfer Race season kicked off Sunday. 25 members came down to swim. It was, as tradition dictates, a fun swim and was treated as such.

The Surf Race team encourage Surfer readers to get down to the beach next week. We start the competition in earnest and look forward to some exciting results.

Remember if you are no longer competitive, come down and get your toes wet … or just come down, cheer and have a natter.
