THE COOLUM Boardriders came together on Saturday, December 2 at their clubhouse in Tickle Park to honour the standout surfers from the year with the club members donning their best white threads for, ‘A Hot Summer’s Night’.
Club President Gav Potter said it was an “absolute ripper of a day” which saw many of the club’s members walking away with trophies in recognition of their great surfing within the club throughout the year.
“We try to do ten rounds a year depending on conditions and from each comp points are allocated,” Gav said.
“Every round gets aggregated and it’s the best five from the year which counts towards the overall score.”
Gav stated that the day had a very “old school” feel with the presentations hosted in the clubhouse.
“It’s such a great venue where we can have a surf and then roll straight into the presentations and have some music, food and drinks.”
The Coolum Boardriders were also proud to look back on what was a big year for the club abroad.
“The club is looking really strong especially in juniors and in the open division.
“We did lots of training for Kirra and for the prestigious Straddie Invitational where we placed fourth overall.”
The cub will now have a break over the Christmas period and will be back into action with the first event of the year the Julian Wilson Serious Fun Day which will be held on January 16 and then it’s off to the Goldy for the Usher Cup from January 17-21.
“With 2024 approaching we are always looking for new members, especially more girls and if someone wants to join us they just need to register via Surfing Queensland and find the club.”
