What’s it like to edit the Surfer?
As this Season draws to a close, your Surfer Editor outlines below what happens to bring this newsletter to you twice a month.
The greatest benefits of the role are working with 20-30 of the Clubs most experienced and dedicated members, leaders across the many activities our Club runs to build a vital lifesaving force on the world’s greatest beach.
These people are eager to involve other members and the community in this great work and every two weeks we exchange information on what’s coming up, what’s new and what great wins we have had.
The Editor roll gathers, organises and beautifies their words and best pictures to keep you informed. It’s a roll that puts you in the centre of the action and ahead of the news.
Perhaps you’d like to get involved. If you have the following, this could be a great way for you to be at the centre of the social, competition and lifesaving functions at Bondi:
Interested? I’d like to involve more people in the next few editions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be part of publishing The Surfer in April and May.!

Blue Room Surf Races
Week 27 – 31 March Results are here.
Another great morning with a bit of surf causing chaos, with the Bronze group that looked sharp in the RSR.
Another long race in good conditions, that saw some great racing.
A Grade. What a thrilling race. A heap of swimmers went for the wave of the day. Jann, who is no slouch, kept her head down until she hit the beach and sprinted to the finish line, with a slew of chasers. Michael was not far behind and beat out Anthony, who must be one of the best improvers over this Season, This was also highlighted by his performances in the pool over the last three weeks on Bondi ASC’s championships.
Paul in B Grade caught a good shoot from the back to the shore, for a convincing win. Liam was a close second, with the pack closing in on Laurie, who came third.
Next week is a week closer to the end of the Season. With our Aussies competitors away, it could be your chance for glory. So, there is no excuse to not coming down and having a go.
I look forward to seeing you all.
I ran into Patti Tuesday and she advised that Keiran had gotten gold. Well done to Mr. Bondi. we look forward to your return as our premier Surf Race starter of all time.
I have a blue set of Zoggs goggles that were left hanging around a signal flag two weeks ago. If yours, please let me know.
Our final Bronze trainees of this Season, ‘BM6’, started last week. They will be training until May. Say ‘Hi!’ if you see them on stormy Sunday mornings!
We have instructors worked out for the first few courses of Season 2019-20. Please get any friends interested in a Bronze to sign up early to avoid disappointment!
