Mainlanders invited to club
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.
