POSTPONED: Presentation Night.
New date June 5. Same time, same place.
In light of the recently introduced Covid restrictions the Board of Management has decided to postpone this Saturday's Presentation Event.
We've not taken the decision lightly but believe it is in the best interests of providing a full, safe and enjoyable night for all of our wonderful lifesavers and competitors.
We have set a new date for Saturday 5 June, same time and place. Any tickets already purchased will carry over. Anyone who can no longer attend please let us know. And for those who had not got a ticket or can now make the new date, be sure to buy your ticket!
We apologise for this decision and any inconvenience to you.
As we prepare this newsletter, the 2021 Aussies are drawing to an end and will conclude on Saturday 24 April. Wow what a campaign South Maroubra has had in 2021 with representation at youth, masters and open competition spread over the beautiful sunshine coast beaches. We hope you kept up to date with photos and results on the club’s Facebook page.
We must give a huge shout out and acknowledgement to our Carnival Officials - Marcelo Garay, Bob Byrne and Peter ‘ Dino’ Steenson, who have once again done a sterling job in volunteering to officiate at the Aussies. Marcelo has done the long haul from Youth through to Opens - great job guys and thank you. Our fearless leader President Paul ‘Stretch’ Fownes and Shane White have been amazing in managing the touring group.
To the parents, coaches and supporters who attended Aussies and were of huge support to our dynamic team of athletes - thank you.
The Aussies is huge and the pinnacle of competition, for our U14 and U15 members who competed for their very first Aussies - absolutely amazing and we certainly hope you got a lot out of this experience and we certainly look forward to the growth in this area for the future.
Full results from the Aussies will be shared later, finals were made and medals were won and we are extremely proud of our team who represented South Maroubra.

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.
