Elder divisions kickstart Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 June, 2017 - Bonny Hills, New South Wales - The Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles presented by HIF saw an action packed day of competition today as age-division competitors battled it out in solid four foot peaks at Bonny Hills.
Ben Dickens (Lennox Head) made light work of the tricky conditions, dominating the opening round of the Over-40 Logger division. Dickens performed a mix of traditional manoeuvres to notch up a massive 16.5 heat total, the highest of the event so far. As a result, Dickens was able to cement his position straight into the final.
Local competitor Ryan Chelman (Lake Cathie) fought tooth-and-nail to move through his Over-40 requal round. Chelman executed an eclectic chain of turns to post a solid 14.84 heat total and earn a spot into the semi-finals.
Multiple Australian Title holder Jason Livingston (Curl Curl) lived up to his previous accomplishments, smashing apart the Over-45 Men's division. Livingston posted an impressive 15.04 heat total in his opening exchange for a barrage of giant rail turns. Livingston will make his next appearance in the second round.
