    Clubbies is back! 

    Saturday saw two incredible events go down on the opening weekend of the 2021/22 Shaw and Partners Financial Services Summer of Surf Series with racing in both Western Australia and Sydney thanks to host clubs City of Perth and Wanda SLSC. 

    The City of Perth Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf 5,000 took place in some picture perfect conditions while the Wanda Tradies ‘One Club’ carnival 7,000 stayed true to classic clubbie carnival form with a combination of gloomy skies and howling onshore wind. 

    While the events ran in different states, the goal was the same. Gain valuable points in the overall Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf Series and cash in a winter’s worth of training.

    Summer of Surf Event Manager Mackenzie Hynard made the trip to the wild west and got to see first hand the incredible day of racing go down at the City of Perth Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf. 

    “It was such an amazing day and a really well run carnival in WA. There was plenty of sharp racing with a tricky shorebreak to keep athletes on their toes. We saw a lot of sprint finishes and I think we are going to see some of the Trigg guys giving the overall series a run for their money in the board and ski events and City of Perth has some great depth in the females. The racing was seriously elite!”

    Meanwhile the weather gods of Wanda dished up a different platter for the NSW athletes but that didn’t stop the red hot racing with particular mention to Kendrick Louis fending off the young guns for a win in the open ironman.

    “It was so good to get the win here today. All these young boys have gotten a lot faster since I last raced them! It’s going to be an epic summer ahead with these boys absolutely flying. Guys like Jackson Borg and Jake Morris will definitely shake up the series.”

    Manly’s Naomi Scott has landed herself atop two separate point scores with impressive race wins in both the swim and ironwoman events after a challenging winter of training.  

    “I am very excited to get two wins under my belt this early in the season and hope to be featuring in the pointscore come the pointy end of the season. It was a big challenge training this winter through the lockdown and having to swim in the freezing cold rockpools five mornings a week so I am so happy it has all paid off today!” 

    In another positive spin for the Summer of Surf, Live Heats proved a massive success with results being accessible live for fans and competitors all around the globe!
