Salt signs a prize crew for season
THE Salt Surf Life Saving Club is looking to leave other surf clubs in their wake when it comes to surf boats.
The club has recently secured a winning crew combination and sponsors in the upcoming season.
Salt SLSC president, David Hoare, said the new team had a huge chance to bring a major surf life saving title to the club for the first time.
The new team consists of ex Rainbow Bay and Tugun champion surf boat rowers Damien Roman, Nick Collins, Paul Attwood and Matt Baldo. The crew won the reserve grade race at the Australian titles and the Queensland State titles and were second in the open grade at the Queensland State titles.
The sweep, Robbie Meijer, ex head coach of both Noosa Surf Life Saving Club and Bulli Surf Life Saving Club is considered one of Australia's finest sweeps.
"Salt SLSC is only in its third season of operation and is fast becoming a club to watch," Meijer said.
"This club is allowing us the opportunity to do what we want to do as a team to be the best we can be." The surfboat rowing season starts with the professional Ocean Thunder Series in Sydney in November.
