Fine con­di­tions at club comp

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Times Sport -

The South West Body­board Club’s round 3 com­pe­ti­tion was blessed with per­fect three to four-foot con­di­tions at Old Cob­ble­stones, Grace­town, at the week­end.

For round 3, SWBC asked mem­bers to bring along boards from pre-2000 and dis­play old-school moves, with a win­ner-takes-all prize for the best vin­tage frother of the day. The even­tual win­ner was Mar­garet River’s Adrian Till on his Manta Pro Hawke.

In the ma­jor di­vi­sions, all rid­ers were able to en­ter two cat­e­gories, and for the top per­form­ers this led to back-to-back heats. The top spoils went to Ziggy Bul­lock (U14s), Mat Jordi (U18s), Steve Allen (DK), Rio Clarke (women’s), Jimi McGre­gor (su­per­groms) and Michael Reid (over-30s vet­er­ans), and Mar­garet River’s Ryan Hardy won top hon­ours for the sec­ond time this year in the open divi­sion.

Hav­ing re­cently re­turned from a fifth place per­for­mance at the Fron­ton King, an APB World Tour event in the Ca­nary Is­lands, Hardy was grounded on re­turn­ing to the grass­roots level.

Other win­ners in­cluded Shane MacKay for club per­son of the day and Kael Mc­Gowan for the Ryan Hardy Bodyboarding School coach’s choice award for best over­all per­former. SWBC holds its fourth and fi­nal round in early De­cem­ber in Mar­garet River. To get in­volved, con­tact
