Lynch and Powell take out their first ever Victorian Longboard State Title

(Point Impossible, VIC – Sunday April 29, 2012): Adam Lynch (Highton) and Molly Powell (Anglesea) have both taken out their inaugural Victorian Longboard Titles in solid conditions at Point Impossible this weekend.
 
With both rounds of the series being run on the one weekend due to the postponement of the first round, surfers were treated to perfect waves on Saturday with a large swell filling in on Sunday.
 
Lynch flew under the radar the whole event, posting moderate scores along with the occasional excellent wave. However it was his consistency that saw him take second in both events and eventually take out the title.
 
Lynch was ecstatic with his first state title.
 
“I got a state title when I was 16 in the Cadets division but it’s good to get an open win.
 
“I grew up surfing “Possos” (Point Impossible) so it’s great to win out here.
 
“This isn’t what Point Impossible is usually like, it’s pretty big out there.”
 
Curry was the in-form surfer on the Sunday taking out the second round with powerful turns in the big surf. In the final Curry posted a huge total of16.56 (out of a possible 20) to take down his opponents Adam Lynch, Will Cousins (Torquay) and Tas Dunton (Mornington Peninsula).
 
Curry enjoyed the bigger surf for the competition.
 
“It was trying conditions out there today, far from the usual longboard comps.
 
“Still good waves when you got them though. Thanks to Patagonia and Island Surfboards for the gear, which held up great in the waves.”
 
Molly Powell, who has been traveling the country competing, was stoked to get a win on home ground.
 
Powell took down friend Sam Suendermann (Anglesea) in both rounds posting solid scores of 14.67 and 12.50 (out of a possible 20) in her two finals.
 
“The waves were epic out there it’s good to win in such good waves.
 
“I can’t wait for the Aussie Titles now, they are always great fun.”
 
Other finalists on the day included Greg Brown (Jan Juc), Ben Considine (Barwon Heads), Phil Trigger (Mornington Peninsula) and Kane Tankard (Mornington Peninsula).

The Victorian Longboard Titles Presented by VB is a two-part series, which determines the Victorian State team for the Australian Longboard Titles in August at Port Macquarie, NSW.
