Thanks to an outstanding performance by local surfer Nic Squires, Scarborough Boardriders has finished in 11th place at the nudie Australian Boardriders Battle at Newcastle over the weekend, coming home with more than $5000 in prize money.
The Northern Illawarra’s nine-strong squad put in a huge effort, with champion Nic Squires turning out a killer performance, winning four straight skins challenges and collecting $500 for the club from each victory!
“We really wanted a top ten finish,” says Scarborough coach and president Christian DeClouett. “But 11th isn’t far off the pace.
“We had some young surfers who were competing against surfers on the world circuit, so they learned a lot and will be better prepared for next year’s championships.
“For our kids to surf against Tyler and Mikey Wright is an incredible experience. If they use this year to learn and continue to work hard, we will certainly be top ten next year.
