Mark Merrikin. TREVOR VEALE

Great day, shame about the waves

THE Coffs Harbour Boardriders has its first event under its belt.

There was a great turn out with more than 60 people signing-on for the first event. The sun was out in full force but unfortunately the waves were only in the one- to two-foot range.

Some of the standouts over the course of various competitions were Mark Merrikin in the open division and basically any of the under-14s and under-16s, who all managed to throw their boards around in the dismal conditions.

Troy Wilson was revelling in the knee-high waves after making a special trip back from his work in Canberra.

The Supergroms had a great time learning about Gallows Beach and some of the dangers that the beach can throw up. After some surf safety, it was into the surf for some unreal rides and most of all a heap of fun for the Coffs Coast’s future surfers.
