Bream Creek Flatwater Sunday 22/12
An easy paddle up the Creek that is suitable for paddlers of all abilities, meet in the Marion Bay Rd car park at 11.00 and those traveling from Hobart we will have the board trailer & SUP bus going, but you will need to reserve a spot. Could be a few partaking in a seafood basket at the Dunalley Fish Market afterwards if any one is interested.

Bream Creek Paddle
It was only those truly dedicated to the cause that paddle the creek today with others letting Christmas festivities get in the way. Veteran creek paddler Google informed us that we could easily get under the bridge if we paddle on our knees, but Tony on his first paddle fresh back from a knee replacement decided it may be better to walk round the bridge only to end up stuck in knee deep mud. Apart from that it was easy paddle up the creek, but as usual we had to tackle a headwind on the return journey. Next club outing will be round 2 of the Summer Surf Series 5th January.

Great stuff StormBaySUP - I have to say, I enjoy reading the updates from Tassie!
My better half's pushing for a mid-year trip to the apple isle next year - definitely keen to get amongst some cold water waves, smash a few refreshing beverages and meet some of the local SUP Tasmaniacs!!!
Yeeeeew!!!!

Round 2 of the Summer Surf Series was run in the clear waters of Pirates Bay this morning after the committee decided to relocate yesterday. The crew were blessed with a clean chest high shore break to show their skills with some very high wave counts and as with the round 1 comp some very close scores. Both Ben and Mat with their first foray into the club competition made the best of wave selection and managed some very good scores. A tech race was also run which tested the lung capacity of a couple of the paddlers. A few of the competitors also enjoyed the famous seafood basket at the fish market on the trip home. There will be some photos posted later for your viewing pleasure.

The paddling never stops in Tassie

5 Mile Beach Down Wind Run

Conditions are looking pretty good for the 5 Mile Beach downwind run this Saturday morning with a 55 kmph westerly forecast. If you're in and need to car shuffle we will see you at the Dodges Ferry School @ 10.30 for an 11.00 start at the 5 Mile Beach car park.

5 Mile Beach Downwinder
After a few late withdrawals the crew set off in a NW gusting to 50 kmph, it wasn't a dream run, but there were plenty of sliders up to 200m to be found in the tricky cross chop which also provided plenty of swims for everyone. Kudos to Lisa and Sam on their standard SUPs who showed the ones on race boards they can have just as much fun in the conditions.
Next club flatwater paddle 19/1/2020

We are revisiting the Huon Valley and conditions will be better than our last paddle there. 10.30 @ the Franklin boat ramp for those that need to car shuffle to the start at Huonville boat ramp at 11.00 and why not stop at Willie Smiths for an apple juice on the way home.

Couldn't of asked for better conditions at this mornings Huon River paddle, no breeze and sunny sky's made for an easy cruise apart from a bit of headwind for the last k, nothing like the last time we paddled there. James, down from the NW coast and Geoff, from Merimbula showed their lack of local knowledge and keen to push a bit harder headed down the eastern side of egg Islands only to miss the cut through and added an extra 10k to the 8k paddle when they had to paddle back upstream to the cutting.
Coming up is round 3 of the surf series 2/2 and next flatwater 23/2
big thanks to Roz for the pics.
