The event’s heats ranged from the Micro-Groms to the Open Men’s and Women’s. The participants challenged the ocean and themselves on the day. The Scotts Head Boardriders run in conjunction with Surfing Australia and recognises club surfing as the grassroots of where Australian surfing begins. This Club originally began as the Nambucca Valley Boardriders and as the decades have passed the club name has changed to the Scotts Head Boardriders. Even though the name says Scotts Head, the club isn’t exclusive to Scotts Head surfers. In recent years, they have welcomed surfers from Valla, Urunga, Nambucca and Sawtell to the shores of Scotts Head. “We are a strong and proud family Club with a focus on building great friendships and supporting our local community. “All our kids get in and have a go as well as getting involved in the day to day running of each event,” Scotts Head Boardriders President Trent Munro said. Sunday’s event was clean and clear, but chilly conditions were felt by all. With the Loggerheads event on the same day, the Scotts Head Boardriders were set up a little further up the beach. Spectators enjoyed clean off shore autumn waves at around the one metre mark. It was a great day to utilise multiple banks from the Scotts Head Youth Centre bank down into Scotts Point for the Micro-Groms. Club Treasurer Stacey Munro told News Of The Area, “The Autumn/Winter season showcases the crisp mornings as well as the clean conditions optimal for surfing.” These events are a way the club can show their appreciation to their sponsors. “We were fortunate to have the K’pane Artisan Bakery representative at Sunday’s event along with the Club’s major sponsor Lifetime Connect,” Trent expressed. “Without the support of the community and sponsors, the events and Club itself wouldn’t be possible. We also have a great Committee that really pulls together for each event,” Stacey said. “We’ve got a great list of locally owned businesses supporting our Club to help us support kids to build their surfing skills, learn about the ocean, gain skills and confidence and also take these to the next level if they wish,” Mr Munro added. The results of Sunday’s Competition: Micro-Groms – everyone’s a winner. Under 10’s – Billy G. Under 12’s – Otto K. Under 14’s – Maddie M. Open Junior’s – Sandon V. Open Men’s – Toby M.
