During the weekend the 2023 Jeff Wilcox Memorial went down on Blueys Beach, Pacific Palms, on the first day, and at Tuncury Beach on the second day of the Australian event.

On Saturday night, right after the comp’s first day, a get together took place on the Bellevue Hotel with competitors, family and friends sharing a good time and enjoying the night.

“What a amazing weekend I had at the Jeff Wilcox Memorial in Forster. We had some amazing waves both days and the level of competitors at all divisions were incredible. I’m very happy to win at such a special event, I love this place since the first comp I’ve compete here. The spirit around this event is just great. Thanks everyone that supported myself over the weekend, all event sponsors and everyone that helped to make this event happen”, said Silas Ganciar, winner of the Open Mens Division and third place in the Master Division.
