In response to the feedback we received from the recent member survey, we thought it would be a good idea to introduce you to the different members of the Long Reef SLSC Management Committee. In this post we meet Matt Russell-Jones who is the club’s Surf Boat Captain and Executive Director. Stay tuned for more MC member profiles in upcoming posts.

Best wishes, your Longy Management Committee

Matt Russell-Jones – Surf Boat Captain / Executive Director

“I have been a member since nippers. I participate because I love the outdoors, keeping active & spending time with the people I have met along the way.”

Editor’s note: I asked Matt about his new mo the other day. Seems that he grew it over Christmas, that he liked it and that his girlfriend doesn’t mind. Lucky him!

Matt would also like more of our members to get involved in rowing surf boats, which has already proven to be a big hit with the newly created “MsFITS” female crew (see other news post) as well as our young SRCs. If you are interested to give rowing a go or have any questions, please drop Matt a line at
