THE Mandurah Board Riders held its registration day for the Junior Summer Series Surfing Competition on Sunday.
The club welcomed a total of 88 new and existing members interested in progressing their surfing to a competitive level.
Children aged from as young as five to 16 competed in a series of paddle races followed by awards and a sausage sizzle.
Young surfers in the Mandurah area who are interested in joining still have time to register.
More information can be found on the Mandurah Board Riders Facebook page.
People must register before the first competition at Pyramids Beach at 7am on November 15.
For the first time in over a decade the Peel Region will be hosting a major Open Surfing Contest. Sanctioned by Surfing WA, the Makin Homes Peel Pro presented by Star Surf + Skate is scheduled to coincide with the best possible swell window for the Mandurah area. The event will be run on the weekend of 25th / 26th July.
Mandurah Board Riders club will be hosting the event and are extremely excited to announce that local businesses Makin Homes and Star Surf + Skate have come on board as major sponsors.
The 2015 Makin Homes Peel Pro proudly presented by Star Surf and Skate will see the state’s best surfers compete in any one of the four selected venues approved by the City of Mandurah Local Council.
Depending on conditions, Gearies, Avalon, Egg Farms and Melros could all be utilised.
Up to 150 surfers will be converging on the beaches of Mandurah for the event in a hope of securing the inaugural title and a piece of the $5000 in cash and prises up for grabs.
You can listen to other Major sponsor Coast FM or join the Makin Homes Peel Pro Facebook page for updates and info in the next 10 weeks leading up to the contest.
The Heat draw will be done a little differently to usual contests - contestants will be drawn from a hat to allocate heat times for the first round of competition. The heat draw will be happening at Cobblers Tavern at 6:00pm on July 24 to kick off proceedings and make it interesting for all competitors.
You do not have to be a Surfing WA member to participate in the event and this will allow a big chunk of the local Mandurah surfers the ability to test themselves against the state’s best surfers in their own back yard.
Entries are now being taken through Surfing WA’s official events page HERE or click on the link through the events Facebook page.
Mandurah Board Riders Welcome all competitors and would like to thank their major sponsers:
Star Surf and Skate
Mandurah City Council
Star is very proud to sponsor WA's (Australia's?) largest junior board riders club - Trigg Junior Board Riders. Last Saturday evening the TJBRC guys held their end of year presentations and wrap up party.
The night was MC'd by Mogga from 3D Fins and featured a Q+A with Mark Rotham (Onboard Industries) and Wooly from Star Surf.
As well as supporting the club with prizes throughout the year, Star sponsored and provided prizes for the blue ribbon Under 18 Boys division.
Massive respect is due to all committee members and parents who constantly volunteer their time for the club. Without you guys, there wouldn't be a club at all, so WELL DONE :)
Congratulations to ALL TJBRC members on a great year of surf comps and special congratulations to the finalists in each division! Also congratulations to Star team riders Dexter Payenberg, Fletcher Llanwarne, Archie and Moses Le Grice and Alex McGuffin on making the finals in their respective divisions!
