Big swell awaits com­peti­tors

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport - Therese Colman

Margaret River body­board­ers will tackle a forecast large swell and strong winds off Man­durah’s coast this week­end for the fi­nal in­stal­ment of the WA Body­board Ti­tles.

Af­ter an ac­tion-packed se­ries opener in Margaret River in March, WA’s best riders have been fine-tun­ing their skills with hopes of qual­i­fy­ing for the Aus­tralian Body­board Ti­tles in NSW in Au­gust.

Lo­cal un­der-16 cadet boys Ziggy Bul­lock and Max McGre­gor placed sec­ond and fourth in round 1, while over-35 masters com­peti­tor Michael Reid came sec­ond in his divi­sion.

All three will com­pete again this week­end, with Bul­lock and McGre­gor up against cur­rent un­der-16 Aus­tralian cham­pion Joel Hughan from Trigg Beach.

Pre­lim­i­nary rounds will be­gin at 8am to­mor­row, with fi­nals planned for Satur­day af­ter­noon and Sun­day morn­ing.
