SLIPSTREAM SURF PADDLERS READY TO RYPP UP PENRITH!
Over the past decade or more, Surflifesaving has proved the perfect breeding ground for Olympic Success.
Who will ever forget Maroochydoore’s Clint Robinson win at Barcelona and Tugun’s Kenny Wallace at he last Beijing Olympics.
This week at Penrith a host of Surf Stars go in search of Olympic Glory, amongst them huge contingent of Slipstream Surf Paddlers.
Tate Smith headlines the Slipstream Surf assault on Olympic qualification this week at Penrith, the Beijing Olympian and Open Ski Champion
who has already qualified the K4 1000 for London after there awesome silver medal to the Germans at the 2011 world championships.Although the
boat is qualified for London, Tate and his Team mates also Surf Club members Murray Stewart, Jacob Clear and David Smith, must still win to
ensure there tickets on the Plane to London.
Tugun’s Matt Urquhart, who had spent the 2009/10 seasons in the K4 1000 boat, has dropped to a more suited position of a 200m Paddler.
Matt came 7th in the 2011 World Championships in 500m discipline and will be lining up to win the K1 200 and Teaming with Northcliffe’s
Joel Simpson to take out the K2 200. The pair have taken there new partnership to new heights and look like going head to head with Western Australian Duo of Bird and Phillips.
Both are not only fighting for the spot on the Australian Team, but must also Qualify the boat through the Oceania division.
Glenn Rypp of West Beach Sth Australia and Nick Dawe of Manly are the new brigade comming through, a birth in the Green and Gold for London
may escape them this time round, but are ones to watch as we head to the 2016 games. Glenn will contest K1 1000m, where Australia still
needs to qualify the boat for the games, he will be up against Robinson, Wallace and Stewart who all have there eyes on the individual spot.
Nick is moving along with speed in the K1 200 and Placed second behind Lachie Tame the Current Australian Surf Ski Champion at a recent regatta, he paired
with his double ski partner Sam Speer and took the win in the K2 200 and could be the bolters in this red hot field. Nick has the high Goal of winning
this years K1 200 at this years Nationals and backing it up with the open single ski title and who is too say he won’t.
We wish all the Slipstream Surf Paddlers all the best in the regatta and look forward to the winning results.
