July Comp Cancelled

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the July 17, PRD Nationwide Perez Real Estate Medal this Saturday.

The current stay at home order means there can be no community sport (whether training or a match) including surfing competitions or club rounds. Whilst this is super disappointing it is well beyond our control and we hope to able to get things going again in August.

Please stay safe during these difficult times.

Hoodies on sale now

Southend Hoodies are back and are now on sale on via Liveheats, but you will need to be quick if you want to purchase one. Go to https://liveheats.com/southendboardriders to order now!

We didn’t do hoodies in 2020 but the Covid-19 shirt design was so popular that we wanted to make sure we had a hoodie version of the amazing artwork designed by club legend and Life Member ‘Richard Cass (currently the 6th best redhead in the club)

This ‘members only’ hoodie will be a limited edition one-off and you will need to hurry  as we will have to place the order by June 17 (next club comp) in order to have them ready in time for the July comp.

There is also an option for postage within Australia so make sure you add ‘POSTAGE’ which is only $10 if you need that.

April Comp on this Saturday

We hope the Easter bunny was kind with plenty of chocolate and you scored some amazing waves up and down the coast across the school holiday break.

Following Maroubra’s mini tsunami/hurricane/cyclone in March, we are excited to bring you April Comp 2 proudly presented by @littlewarriorsgym
A quick reminder: you need to register to surf by logging in to your LIVEHEATS account, go to Southend Boardriders & choose “Event 2 – April 2021 Little Warriors Gym” before 4pm on Thursday 15 April.

All members including groms, note that even though you have signed up for the year as a member, you still need to register to surf in each comp that you’re entering, so we know who’s coming and can draw up the heats for the day. All divisions are full and we will be lucky to get all heats surfed in daylight, so there will be NO beach starts/sign ups

Conditions are looking pretty decent for the day at this stage with a small and growing southerly swell and light winds. Hopefully this should keep everyone from micro-groms to grand-masters frothing all day long! Add a few snags, the Little Warriors Gym set up on the beach for some serious ninja warrior action and you’ve got yourself a recipe for awesome.

TBC Micros will be meeting at the Southend tent early afternoon as the tide heads out but we will confirm that time ASAP

We can ONLY get underway on time with lots of eager helpers from 6am onwards when the tents, tarps and tunes go up, so grab a coffee and don’t be shy to get involved and help out!

Get excited peeps & see you Saturday!
