Celebrity Surfer Visits School

WA professional surfer Felicity Palmateer last week paid a visit to Margaret River Primary School to share her experiences at the World Qualifying Series tour with students. She also talked about the need to be fit, healthy and mentally focused for competitions. Felicity, who is a cousin of local surfing coach Josh Palmateer, said that she loved spending her time around Margaret River when she isn’t juggling a busy surfing schedule.

New Advanced Vehicles For Police

You can expect the police to be more efficient over the weekend as they use brand-new concept vehicles to patrol Margaret River. Also known as the advanced traffic management car, the new model is designed to automatically identify car registration details. The data appears on a big computer screen inside the vehicle, which also provides instant info on drivers’ licenses and personal details. Other features include cameras on the back and front, an extra-loud siren and super-bright LED lights.

Pro Attracts Largest Crowd Ever

Judges say that the crowd at Sunday’s finals of the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro 2013 was the largest turn out they have seen in the history of the event. The Pro drew a huge crowd to enjoy the finals at Surfers Point, as Australian east coast surfers Josh Kerr and Tyler Wright faced Hawaiians Dusty Payne and Carissa Moore in a battle for glory.

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
