Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 5. 1967.
At the recent inaugural meeting of the VUW Surf Board Riders Club. 125 people supported six enthusiastic "freshers" responsible for calling the meeting.
The six, led by John O'Leary, established themselves as the club executive for an interim period of three months. Aided by a further six elected as the foundation committee, their immediate task is to draw up a constitution to be presented at another general meeting to be called within three months.
The constitution is to incorporate the aim of fostering suit board riding within the university. The committee is to prepare for the club's entry into competitive New Zealand surf board riding and is to, launch an ambitious social programme, which it is hoped, will be stimulated by the acquisition of a club-house at Lyall Bay.
The club was affiliated to the Students Association several days prior to the inaugural initial meeting and if the initial enthusiasm is maintained, it Should become a major club on the Victoria sporting scene.
