NUDIE AUSTRALIAN BOARDRIDER BATTLE GOES OFF AT ROARING BEACH.

Today's exciting Nudie Australian Boardrider Battle Comp went down in mixed conditions at Roaring Beach today, following a relocation from South Arm where the swell faded to ankle height. For the most part the four teams of 6 competitors enjoyed great conditions on the right hander under the cliff until the wind swung onshore later. The surf action was hot from the starting gun as NWBR sort to retain their inaugural Championship win last year. However, arch rivals SABR led by open state champion Hamish Renwick were out for redemption and the chance to again represent Tassie at the national finals in Newcastle NSW mid February. Dark horses PBBR were the surprise package with veteran Jules Farmery and red hot Jyle Grafton who made their intensions clear from the start. They were there to win !!. In the final exciting 1 hour teams challenge  competitors and spectators were in a frenzy with 10 seconds remaining on the clock three teams were sprinting from the long wade to reach the finish tent before the final siren. In all the winner was again the terrific ABB format. Winner of the Milwarkee Biggest Hack Power Tool Set was PBBR's 45 yo Jules Farmery with some powerful surfing and a huge fan thrown up from a one of his big rides . It was great to see Lizzie Stokely in action again in Tassie waters representing SABR as she displayed her great skills against other club rivals.
