The Barmilano Cup is the next comp for the 2022 Southend Boardriders point score season. Scheduled for this Saturday 21 May at Maroubra Beach, the comp is now open on Liveheats for surfers to register; cut off is 5pm on Thursday 19 May. 

This comp is brought to you by Barmilano on Marine Parade and has a focus on our female surfers. We are pleased to see that the Southend female divisions continue to grow so strongly with over 60 members signed in 2022. Many have been participating in a program being coordinated by committee member Jeni Lee, with coaching sessions, well-being activities and social events that help to break down barriers and contribute to Maroubra beach becoming an inclusive, safe and friendly place to compete, socialise and join in club events. 

The current forecast for the Barmilano Cup is calling a mid-size southerly swell with light winds all day – let’s just hope that all the rain forecast for this coming week buggers off by Saturday. 

Our shredding ‘microgroms’ will meet at the tent 8:45am, and surf at 9am. We will let you know if there’s a change so keep your eye on socials.

All going well, we should have the 2022 member T-Shirts available for pick up on Saturday as well, and weather permitting, we will do the 2022 club group photo around 11am. For more information about this closer to the day, and to see the heat draws, stay tuned to the Southend socials and Liveheats. 

Thanks again to the crew at Barmilano for supporting Southend Boardriders! See you on Saturday!
