17 Oct Lifeline Northern Beaches Surf Classic
The second annual Lifeline Classic, a tag team event, was held in good, 1.2m surf at Dee Why Beach on Sunday April 22, with Manly Surf School narrowly defeating the International College of Management Sydney, with O’Neill Originals third and Cunningham’s fourth. Joyce Magazine won the women’s final from Surfing Mums and QBC Girls.
Seventeen teams raised money for Lifeline Northern Beaches and two schools, Narrabeen Sports High and Balgowlah Boys Campus, competed for the first time. Thanks go out to all the fundraising teams and the pro surfers who generously donated their Sunday to take part in the event.
The event was one better this year, taking on a ‘festival’ feel,” with the involvement of : –
- Shannon Nevin’s Walk n Talk,
- Black Dog Ride,
- Waves of Wellness
Waves of Wellness came across from Bondi and they competed on soft boards and wore Hawaiian leis to add a great fun element to the day.
Contest director Steve Harrison, of Global Surftag, said Dee Why really turned it on with pumping waves and sunshine. “It was great to see some really good surfing from the pros and legends who supported the event,” Harrison said. “Shane Carroll, Dayyan Neve and Bodhi Leigh-Jones were the standouts scoring some big numbers, and well done to the Waves of Wellness team for bringing a fun vibe to the event.”
