LOCAL TRIALISTS TO COMPETE FOR FINAL SPOT IN THE 2019 NUDIE AUSTRALIAN BOARDRIDERS BATTLE FINAL
There is one piece of the puzzle left before the finals weekend gets underway on Saturday, February 16th at the nudie Australian Boardriders Battle Series VI National Final at Newcastle Beach.
The final vacant position in the National Final will be filled by the winner of the nudie Trials on the Saturday (Feb 16th) morning with local clubs Bay Area Boardriders, Frenchmens Boardriders, East End Boardriders and Redhead Boardriders to do battle for the chance to gain entry to the world’s biggest and best boardriders event.
Redhead Boardriders Club president Jamie Adlington said: “Being a local Newcastle-area boardriders club, with a crew full of local underground rippers, having the opportunity to make the main event is something that means more than most would realise.”
“To give our local club team the opportunity to be able to compete against the best clubs & surfers in the world would be one of the highlights of these guy’s lives! Redhead Boardriders Club is beyond stoked on the local trials initiative that Surfing Australia puts in place, and hope our shredders take the wildcard!”
The nudie trials winner will be the second local club to gain entry to the event with Merewether Surfboard Club already gaining a wildcard.
