Woogie had planned to go and SUP Surf South Straddie with Jacko, Tully, Jake, Macca and a few others early on Friday Morning but the conditions did not favour Straddie so they headed South to Fingal just over the NSW boarder.
That afternoon an advanced Technique clinic was planned to help improve some problems the distance paddles have been getting.
Practicing what he preaches - Woogie showing proper technique
Conditions of Friday were great but by Saturday we had a mini Cyclone down in Sydney, which was playing havoc with the conditions on the Gold Coast. Small Waves with a North North West wind was a shocking combination for State Titles & the Roar Industries SUP Expo.
During the final of the Sprint race - Woogie closely followed by Troy Pease
All first round heats were surfed and competitors were hoping for better condition on Sunday.
Sunday was just as bad but without the Rain. Sunday saw the 1/4 finals semi’s & Finals of all divisions as well as the Sprints.
Relaxed & Focused before the heats of the Sprints
