The Maroubra United Boardriders team finished in 7th place at the Southern NSW qualifying event of the Australian Boardriders Battle
In epic 4-6 ft waves at Bombo Beach just north of Kiama. Blake was first in and got the team off to a great start with a 2nd place finish. This format is slightly different where each surfer top wave is counted and determines the overall winner of the heat. Blake’s best wave came with 5 min to go scoring an 8.2. He absolutely obliterated the wave. First turn is where the points were at and his backhand attack was on. He was sitting in 1st place until with 5 remaining Jay Quinn from Culburra snagged a 9.2 gem right at the death to take out the heat.
