Great walls of water were the feature at Lake Moodemere over the weekend with 50 of the best skiers from around Australia going head to head in a battle for the top slalom skier.
The spoils went to Nic Adams from Melbourne, who does much of his training out of Corowa during the Australian summer. Nic’s score of 3 buoys on the 10.25 line was just one buoy off his Australian record. Nic was the only skier to break into the 10.25 line. His nearest competitors, Jack Christie and Trent Nelson Cranfield made it through to the 10.75 metre line but couldn’t go on with it.
In the women’s division Australian representative skier, Newcastle’s Stephanie Griffith, came through with the win on a 12 metre pass with a count of 4 buoys just edging out Chelsea Brien from Gol Gol in NSW with a score of 1 buoy on the 12 metre line.
You could have thrown a bucket of water over the men’s 35 plus division as the top three were only half a metre apart, however in the finish Pete Cornale from Brisbane with a best score of 2 buoys on the 10.75 metre line edged out Barry Mason of Balgowlah NSW and Robert Banks from Hastings in Victoria with scores of 5.5 buoys and 4.5 on the 11.25 line.
