The first Club trip got underway last Sunday when a good turnout of new members travelled over to Tora on the eastcoast. A good swell was running and although a Nor Wester gave a small chop to the waves for the first few hours the wind soon dropped and ideal conditions were present for the selection of a Surfriders team to compete at this years Easter tournament. New members Adrian Taylor and Jonathan Neal proved themselves well with Taylor riding as well and as tight as anyone else in the water, [unclear: laterin] the afternoon, with the dropping tide, no wind and plenty of sun, the club members hasseled with the large crowd for the near perfection 5-6' walls.

The contest was run on radically different lines to those held in the past with all the members going into the water at anytime and then late in the afternoon discussion on whom was to represent Vic at Easter. The team is to be Adrian Taylor Murray Lines, Jonathan Neal, Murray Carey, James Wills and reserve, David Banks (knee-machine exponent).

With a good start to the years activities it is hoped similar trips away will be held. Better transport is available this year with more suitable cars and a weekend trip to Taranaki is planned for sometime before the May vacation. The New Zealand champs are to be held in Taranaki over Easter and with the present weather patterns providing some good swells it may prove to be successful.
