Seaview Road Boardriders have won the 22/23 Hyundai Australian Boardriders Battle (ABB) presented by Zambrero, South Australian qualifier.
This solidifies their place in the National Final as well as netting them $1500 for the club.
The third stop of the country’s biggest grassroots boardriders event showcased SA clubs competing in 2-3 foot surf at the Bay, Middleton.
“Roaders” as the club is affectionately known, was established in 1964 and is the oldest club in South Australia. It has a rich history of producing some of the state’s most successful competitive surfers.
“We are really excited, this is the first time we have won the competition in SA and we can’t wait to travel to the national finals next year. Thanks to all the sponsors and the event organisers.” said Cheryl Peat, Seaview Road Boardriders Club team manager.
The Oakley Prizm award went to Digby Tooze (SRBC) and the Harvey Norman High Performer award for a junior surfer was awarded to Corey Taylor. Alan Peat was also rewarded for being a consistent standout surfer for SRBC throughout the day.
