SURFING VICTORIA | Partner Event 

Surfers and SUP paddlers couldn't have asked for better conditions when they turned up to the Surf Coast over the weekend. The 18-kilometre paddle took place from Point Roadknight to Torquay on Sunday, while the SUP surfing competition was held at Point Impossible on Saturday. 

The titles saw 16 new champions crowned across both men's and women's marathon, technical and surf divisions. 2-3 foot conditions with light winds were perfect for all levels and disciplines of the event and made the technical race exciting with paddlers required to weave in and out of a course through the surf. 

Congratulations to all the new champions and everyone who took part in the dynamic event over the weekend.
