Avoca Boardriders have officially taken out the Nudie Australian Boardriders Battle Final, held at Newcastle Beach 17-19 Feb.
This year World Surfaris presented the winners prize to Avoca team captain Adrian Buchan, giving Ace and his team the chance to surf some of the worlds best waves hosted by Ben at Kingfisher Mentawai Resort.
Avoca’s star studded line up was far too strong for its competition on the day, easily winning the final round even after receiving a 5 point penalty when world tour surfer, Matt Wilkinson stood up for a 3rd consecutive wave.
It made no difference in the end and the drama only added to the excitement of what was a terrific weekend of waves and an overall epic surfing competition.
24 of the countries best boardriders clubs featuring some of the worlds best including; 6 time world champ Stephanie Gilmore, 2016 world champ, Tyler Wright, 2015 mens world champ, Joel Parkinson and other world tour competitors such as Matt Wilkinson, Adrian Buchan, Davey Cathels, Connor O’Leary and Ethan Ewing were on show and absolutely ripping!
The Avoca team will head over to the Mentawais in May 2017 and are in for a real treat as they spend 7 nights at the resort with all meals, their own private speed boat to access the waves, wireless internet, epic fishing and loads variety in waves!
