Main­lan­ders in­vited to club

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health - By DENISE S. CAHILL

LIAM O’Brien (20) is among a group of keen surfers who has re­launched the Off­shore Board­rid­ers Rot­tnest Is­land group.

The pres­i­dent said the group was es­tab­lished in 1988 but folded a cou­ple of years ago.

“We’re mix­ing it up a bit, we’re invit­ing peo­ple from the main­land to get in­volved,” Liam said.

“We’ll have some big events over the year and com­pe­ti­tions.

“We want to get the com­mu­nity in­volved.”

The club cur­rently has about 15 mem­bers aged be­tween 17 and 50.

Liam, who works at Sub­way on the Is­land, said the main surf break was at Strick­land Bay.

“We get out a lot around the is­land de­pend­ing on the con­di­tions,” he said.

Off­shore Board­rid­ers was re­launched last month.
