Club's talent runs deep
PACIFIQUE Surfriders Club president Keith Drinkwater led a strong team performance at the Reef 2 Beach Agnes Water Longboard Classic 2011.
The keen competitor showed all his experience and skill to take out the over 60 men’s division.
The weekend-long competition started on the Friday, and young gun Daniel Coombes set the standard by winning the North of Fraser Under-18 event on the Friday, with club-mate Eoin Whately also doing well to be runner-up.
Pacifique also had two placegetters in the North of Fraser Open Men’s, with Bill Rehbein and Glenn Cunningham picking up second and third respectively.
They were also dually represented in the under-18 girls’ final on the Sunday, with Demi Giovannoni clinching third but Kate Connor missing a place.
Tracey Dunn and Jane Saul flew the Pacifique flag in the over 35 women’s, and they wound up third and fourth respectively.
Glenn Cunningham improved on his third in the North of Fraser open men’s to beat all comers in the over 40 men’s division.
Sunday also featured the traditional Malibus and while Bill Rehbein had to settle for fourth, Jason Tulk fared better to beat all but the winner.
Dean Burgess also progressed to the final of the under eight foot Malibus.
Club secretary Daren Kena said the performances showed the strength of talent within the club in several divisions.
