In marginal conditions, bordering barley surfable, Western Australian former World Tour Surfer, Taj Burrow took out the 21st Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Classic. A crowd of over 6,000 people watch competitors in Open, Womens, and Junior Divisions negotiate the dreaded rocks of Burleigh Point, showing incredible skills in the tiny surf.

Burrow opened his account with one of the best waves of the event scoring a perfect 10 point ride from the judges, wrapping up the victory with his second and only other ride late in the 20 minute final.

“To win this event today is unreal. I had such a good time, there were no waves and it was great!” said an ecstatic Burrow, “I want to come back and surf it with real waves, then it will be the best event I have ever surfed”

“I love coming to Burleigh Heads and catching up with all my mates”, Burrow feeling at home at the event, “Burleigh is one of the best perches in the world, to sit up on there taking it in with my mates, is the best thing ever.

Burrow won from former World Tour Surfer, Mitch Crews, with Sunshine Coast surfer, Jack Lewis taking 3rd place.

It was Western Australian domination with renown Women’s big wave surfer, Felicity Palmenteer winning the Women’s Division from fellow World Tour surfer Isobella Nichols. Palmateer recently relocated to the Gold Coast from Western Australia, and is a member of the Burleigh Boardriders, stoked to win at her new home.

The Junior Division was won by last years winner, and Burleigh Boardrider, Maddy Job, the current Burleigh Boardriders Club Champion gave a dominant dispelay of single fin surfing over his rivals to win the title for the second year in a row.

Commentator and Burleigh stalwart, Dwayne Harris won the Vonu Lager award for the best traditional single fin surfer. Harris won a Wayne Dean Neal Purchase Junior shaped 7’3” single fin and a years supply of Vonu Lager.

Hello guys and girls,

It’s that time of year again when we request all club members to show up in their masses to show their respect on ANZAC Day.

We are all going to meet at the club house dressed in club colours at 04:00am sharp.

We will paying homage to the many great Australians and New-Zealanders that fought side by side with the British for our free way of life that we enjoy today and formed the ANZAC SPIRIT. In WW1 we lost over 60,000 men, it was a heavy price to pay!

As an Australian i am really proud to be a part of the involvement that our club has shown on this special day in the past and respect for the many lives lost. It also cements Burleigh Boardriders as an integral part of our local community.

So get to the club house at 04:00am especially you grommets (and yes all parents welcome!), from there we will walk to the dawn service together at Memorial Park (opposite the bowls Club) to mark the landing at Gallipoli at 04:28am. Here, our club president and junior president will both lay a wreath at the ANZAC memorial.

Following the service, we will all go back to the club house for a bacon and egg BBQ breakfast and a club mingle.This will be followed by the inaugural ANZAC DAY CUP: this will be an AUS V NZ TEAMS SURF COMP..more news to come on this……
At 9am we will all then proceed to the top of James street on the eastern side car-park (in front of Tom Ugly’s) for the club to march down James street together following the diggers and represent our club with pride among the community of Burleigh,

I urge all members to be a part of this march as it is a great honor to be included in the proceedings of ANZAC DAY in the community of Burleigh.

Lets all show up with pride in a sea of red and white.

JAMES LEWIS

PRESIDENT BURLEIGH BOARDRIDERS
