ROCKINGHAM surfers were well represented at The Volte Wetsuits WA Longboard Titles presented by SunSmart along Denmark’s scenic coastline, with pristine conditions for the 17 state championship divisions contested.

After an exciting opening event in Yallingup in February, Denmark delivered crystal clear water and groomed 2-3 feet peaks, providing the perfect canvas for traditional and high performance longboard manoeuvres to take place.

Jacob McIvor (Rockingham) was one of the best of the junior competitors, taking out the Under-18 Junior Boys Championship.

After two great events in Yallingup and Denmark, attention now turns towards preparing the team of 33, plus WA longboarders, for the Australian Surf Championships, which will take place on the Tweed Coast, NSW in August.

“I’d like to congratulate our event winners, the 2019 state champions and all our amazing competitors who have participated wholeheartedly in this year’s Volte Wetsuits WA Longboard Titles,” said Surfing WA events manager Justin Majeks.

“Denmark certainly simulates the kind of conditions our team can expect to surf at the national titles and it’s been three really great days of longboard surfing here in Denmark.”
