Hot Surfers Burn Up the Neart Epic

Congratz to ALL the surfers that competed in yesterday’s Reaction LongBoard Epic @ Neart in the West of Ireland Charity SIM group. We all saw some really hot and excellent surfing all day, it was very cool to be up in the judges area and watching all the action up close! At Neart, the SLSA trialled a new wave count system where each surfer gets an equal number of waves in the Semi’s and Finals. I think it worked well and didnt cause a large time blow out which was our main worry before the event. Let the SLSA know your opinion about how that worked over at this post in the forum.

The result was made extra exciting when we had ties for 2nd place in the first and second semi finals. With 8 final qualifiers we had to call a lightening tie-breaker to select 3 surfers to join Pova, VW and Christine who had won their respective semi finals and had automatically qualified for the final. The tie-breaker saw some of the best surfing of the day as the 5 2nd place qualifiers battled with everything they had for that spot in the final. Quench, Paeida and Desne all made it through and made the final an exciting and hard fought contest.

The Results of the Final were as follows:

  • 1st place QUENCH spotter with 17.83
  • 2nd place VW Sands with 17.50
  • 3rd place Christine Daffodil with 17.16
  • 4th place Pova Rustamova with 16.66
  • 5th place Paeida Allen with 16.50
  • 6th place Desne Aabye with 16.00

The overall Season Title is open to virtually anyone in the top 8 and 2nd and 3rd place title open to more! See all the Rankings here. Christine, VW and Desne have all improved there positions in the top ten and Quench’s win saw him rise from 47th to 11th place overall!!

The happy place getters manbo!ing to the crowd!

SLSA Special Elections

***An SLSA Election has been called for****

This election is being called for the following reasons
1) there are not enough standing directors left to from a quorum in order to be able to appoint interim directors.
2) the next scheduled election is June 1st which is after the Neart Competition which would force the 2 remaining directors to run the competition three directors short.
The elected directors will be elected for a full 6 month term in addition to the 2 weeks before June 1.

The question is-
Do you support having an election to fill the three open directors chairs vacated by Ritch Goalpost, Sierra Sugar and Carenahh Kuhh?

Please vote yes , I support the election or no, I do not support the election.
Submit your note card with vote to Radical Twang, Milo Voss, Poid Mahovlich, Rani Decosta and Carenahh Kuhh
You may use the same note card as your SLSA Candidates note card if you do choose to vote.
—————————————————
We have had three people express their interest to be on the SLSA board of directors. They are Sally LaSalle, Ashleigh Dickins and Colleen Brennan. Their announcements to run for this election will be posted on the forum. Since Sally has decided to run, Carenahh Kuu has volunteered to stand in her place receiving the votes.

Please submit a note card with your votes for SLSA director to Radical Twang, Milo Voss, Poid Mahovlich, Rani Decosta and Carenahh Kuu by Saturday May 17th. Please make sure to drop a note card on all five of us.

PLEASE VOTE. While there are three open slots and three candidates running it is very important that the membership vote on these TWO important issues.
