From Shirley Fairall:
"A big thanks to all for braving the terrible conditions on Saturday and then returning on Sunday for the second trial on the same weekend. Thank goodness we were blessed with awesome weather as well as better surf conditions and some really fun waves on Sunday. A special thanks to those who traveled long distances to bring their kids to our trials – from Knysna, Port Alfred as well as J Bay.
Thanks to Thys and Louis for the work they are doing in introducing surfing to some kids from J Bay who would normally not be given these opportunities. We are so grateful to you guys, as without you, EP would not be able to meet the development criteria. To witness the joy on these little ones faces when they come in after a heat, is so rewarding.
Thank you to our judges as well as EP committee members who gave up their entire weekend to assist at the trials.
Attached are the results of the first and second trial. The third trial will be held this Sunday, 1st March at Kitchen Windows in J Bay. Registration will be at 7.45 and the first heat should be in the water by 8.30. It would make it much easier if you could send me a mail confirming your entry for Sunday and then we can draw up the heat sheets before Sunday morning, therefore preventing a delay in starting the trial."
