The sport is making a strong comeback with the under-21 women's crew and the open men's crew gaining medals at a national level this past season. The success and grow- ing number of crews has meant a new surf boat. The club's three boats received a blessing and names at a ceremony after the annual meet- ing. The new boat was named after Neil Falloon, who was part of the crew that won the club's first national boat title in 1967. After giving up rowing, Neil continued in surf boats as a sweep and trainer until his death in 2006. After the naming cere- mony, the new Neil Falloon'' was taken out for its first official row. The second boat is dedicated to Allan Bon- nici -- a member of the club's original boat crew that came second at the nationals in 1959. Allan has encouraged many to row surf boats and still enjoys support- ing the Muriwai crews. If anyone deserves the credit for Muriwai getting into surf boats it is Allan Bonnici, he and John Foster gave many of us our first taste of surf boats,'' says John Sinclair, a 1965 Muriwai rower. The third boat is named after Errol (Red) Lewton who rowed for a year and was then sweep for the remainder of his surf boat career. He was instrumental in keeping Muriwai at the top in nationals, win- ning seven gold medals, three silver and a bronze between 1965 and 1979 along with a final in Australia in 1976. As a mentor, he was a sweep with great boat control and skill leading to selection for the New Zealand team in 1972. He helped shape rowing today through his organisation of the first carbon fibre reinforced oars and moulded seats used by rowers. In 1979 Red died in a car crash. Ahead of the season members are preparing for a new clubhouse, lifeguards will be in training and there are plans to broaden com- petitive events for the surf athletes.
