End of Year Presentation – Saturday 27 November

Please join us to celebrate the year that was- and sometimes wasn’t- for the annual Southend Boardriders Maroubra Preso!
Date: Saturday 27 November
Time: 11am – Hearts4Arch Expression Session (cadets memorial event) sponsored by PRD Perez Real Estate Maroubra 
Presentation & Awards: 1pm – 3pm (all divisions)
Venue: South Maroubra- Arthur Byrne Reserves (behind the South M’bra surf club)
Food: BBQ, DJ and cool drinks for the kiddos in the park following the Hearts4Arch session
To kick off our day, a cadets expression session will be dedicated to young club member Archie Perkins who sadly passed away in early 2020. We would love to raise awareness and have you get behind the Hearts4Arch Foundation. Arch’s family continue their vision to save the lives of Sydney Children’s Hospital cardiac patients by providing them with a mobile device that delivers accurate, personalised heart data to doctors, anytime, anywhere!  You can find out more here at https://www.hearts4arch.com.au/This event will be hosted by Veronica Perez and the team from PRD Perez Real Estate, with prizes for the champ. Caps will be available for purchase so bring a few bucks and get behind this special cause.
Afterwards ‘big kids’ are welcome to head over to Beach Burrito Coogee for some more tunes, tortillas and tequilas as we thank Ben and the team for their support this year!
We have a number of Southend t-shirts, from 2021 and previous years, that will be for sale on the day only for $20 each.

It’s not the year anyone wanted, but we were fortunate to get away with a few comps, catch-ups and events, and are really grateful to our sponsors that stood with us and kept us going. Please check ’em out below and when you next need anything such as rope access, remedial painting, surfing lessons, construction needs, surf wax, a new home, a home loan, an Italian dinner, a burrito or a kids gym party- please consider calling one of these legends! We look forward to welcoming many of our sponsors to our shindig so we can all thank them personally.

See y’all there peeps!

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.
