Board of Management
This is Beck Hamilton's first season with South Maroubra but not her first at the helm of a boat, and boy has she made an impact. Beck has set some records along the way and continues to lay some solid ground for the future of women in surf boats as well as future sweeps whilst also having a great vision with Boat Captain Phil to grow our boat section at South Maroubra.
With a newly formed but dedicated crew, plenty of early mornings and many hours in the gym and boat, Beck and her girls took Gold at the NSW State Championships in the Reserve Womens event. With a few more weeks to train, they had their eyes set on Gold at the Australian Championships.
Tricky conditions at Broadbeach drew on every ounce of Beck's superior surf awareness, sweep skills and patience resulting in her crew making it through to the Women’s Australian Reserve Surf Boat Final. After a tough start in the final they recovered to bring home a hard fought Bronze medal against the best woman’s crews in Australia which is a massive achievement, but we are sure they have their eyes set on Gold next season.
Congratulations ladies and a big congrats to Beck who is the first female sweep to take out medals at both NSW State and Aussies.
