Palmy Longboarders Club Host Annual DSA Surfing Day Event

The annual Palmy Longboarders DSA event occurred on Sunday March 19. Although the conditions were challenging, with a very strong current running along the beach toward the escalator rip alongside the pool, spirits were high and smiles were wide. 

Talented Photographer Jacqueline Andronicus was in the water with her Aquatech underwater housing, and shares these great images.

The Barrenjoey High School SRC (Student Representative Council) came down to lend a hand, after raising a phenomenal amount of money for the DSA with their record breaking surfboard lineup. They were great energy and really helpful to have on board. 

Since 2011 this local boardriding club has been hosting a DSA surfing day event where great fun, great people and great food are all part of the experience. This year, with Barrenjoey High School students helping out as volunteers, the bliss that is getting in the water and getting on a wave was extended into a shared day of fun among peers that proves founder of DSA Gary Blaschke's determination to put 'smiles on dials' works for those going surfing and those helping them to.
