Following the AGM of Waveski Surfing Australia, Dale Randahl takes over from the superb work that Rees Duncan has carried out as the President of the association over the past 2 years.

The WSA has also announced that, like the South African and UK associations, it has now affiliated a local paddling association... in this case the Queensland Canoe Association. No word yet though whether they will be breaking their paddles in half or not. Either way, like the other associations, they stand to gain a lot of benefits from being linked with a larger group.

More details on the WSA AGM will no doubt be covered on the WSA website in due course.

Victoria Bay: In almost perfect conditions, WP riders took the bulk of the honours at the SA Waveski Surfing Championships held at Victoria Bay near George on 25 and 26 April.

With a light offshore breeze prevailing, Vic Bay’s legendary right hand break produced five to six foot waves on the first day, moderating to four or five feet on the second and final day. Diminishing surf on the second day forced many contestants pushing their final point-chase rides ever closer to the rock-strewn promenade, producing some exciting rides and occasional hair-raising moments.

So the initial teething problems are out of the way... although private messages are still archived at the moment and there are a couple of other loose bits... but the bulk of the new site is working including new features and functionality, including a improved blog and forums functions, events calendar (waiting for events people) and a return of the links section (also waiting for any missing links). Hope you all enjoy and keep send content!

 Oh... and you can also keep up to date with us on twitter... @waveskiinfo (twitter.com/waveskiinfo). Cheers... John.
