NSW Longboard Titles Murphy Takes the Lead
It was an action packed day up at Boomerang Beach on the NSW Mid-North Coast for the girls. In the Women’s Open final 1 (final 2 is on Saturday all 6 surfers will surf both finals the girl with the most points after both finals is the winner) Lara Murphy from Bondi took first place with Roisin Carolan closely following in 2nd place and Jennifer Arnold in 3rd place.
In the Women’s over 35’s it was Deb Allan, 1st Elizabeth Murray 2nd and Viv Cresswell 3rd place with some tight turns and stylish moves from the ladies.
Lara Murphy, who rides for Bennett Surfboards had a few drop knee cutties and a great nose ride in the Opens and says “the Conditions were tricky, but I managed to jag a couple of waves that linked up so got lucky. The event has been fun so far. There has been plenty of sunshine and the usual family vibe. Always someone to chat too!”
The Mermaid Society contributor Roisin Carolan said after the heat “Lara won the heat and surf really well on her forehand, and it’s at such a nice spot up here at Boomerang. I haven’t been here since I was 12 or so, and the beaches are so beautiful. The clarity of the water reminds me of home (Byron Bay) it’s so nice.”
