National Old Mal titles results | Photos

Over 100 surfers from across Australia took to the waves at Crescent Head over the weekend to compete in the 25th National Old Mal titles.

The event is organised by the Crescent Head Malibu Club and president Roger Fergusson said the competition is friendly and feels like a family.

“It’s a very inclusive event, that’s really what drives it and makes it great,” he said. 

The competition kicked off on Friday morning but was postponed at 11am due to strong winds and poor surfing conditions.

The heats recommenced on Saturday morning with great weather and ideal conditions. 

The majority of the finals were held on Sunday due to the postponed heats on Friday, with the presentation held at The Point at the conclusion of the competition.

The results from the 13 divisions are:

Under 40 Greennough was won by Aidan Cashin while the 40 and over Greenough was taken out by Cory Robinson. 

Scott Downing took out the 40 and over D fin, the open Pool Boards was won by Paul Scholten and Dylan Chisholm won the toothpick event.

Matt Chojnacki won the timber board single fin as well as taking out the under 50 Logger for the second year in a row.

50 and over Logger winner was Charlie O’Sullivan, 60 and over classics winner was Brad Hurst and 65 and over legends was won by Billy Morris.

Lara Murphy took out the women open Logger, while 20 and under Logger was won by Shaun Mannion and 20 and under Old Mal winner was Lauchan Mackay.
