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.

Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Festival

6th,7th, and 8th January 2017

After a great end of year performance, Joel Parkinson has ended up at 9th on the rankings, and is looking forward to having another crack in 2017. The highest rated Gold Coast surfer, has been confirmed as a starter in the 2017 Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Classic.
An amateur event which sees surfers taking part on boards more than 35 years old, with one fin a flashback to the 1970’s. The event runs on Saturday and Sunday the 7th and 8th of January 2017, and entries are open to the public. Mark Occhilupo is also confirmed as a starter, along with a field of red hot locals and all comers. First prize is the glory and an Ian Byrne channel bottom single fin, but everybody that competes get the prize of possibly surfing pumping Burleigh with only 5 other guys on a classic 1970’s single fin. Maybe a chance to surf against Occy or Parko?
Entries are available from the Surfing Queensland website, and the field is limited, on a first in first served basis.
As part of the festival, on the Friday the 6th January 2017, Burleigh Boardriders will be hosting their annual charity luncheon at Burleigh Brewing. Guest speakers will include Occy, Joel Parkinson, Rod “Kerrbox” Kerr from Bondi Rescue, and the best looking guest speaker the luncheon has ever had, big wave charger and Instagram sensation Felicity Palmenteer.

This shirt signed by Andy Irons just 10 minutes after his win. It has been held back until now put the item up for auction, and should fetch a pretty penny. Many other auction items will be up for grabs as well.

September 2nd, 2016 Posted in Latest News | No Comments »

Liam O’Brien Qld Under 18 Champion, Maddy Job runner Up 1-2 to Burleigh Boardrdiers!!

August 27th, 2016 Posted in Latest News | No Comments »



Maddy Job Under 18 Qld Runner Up


It’s Official!!!!! Burleigh Boardriders have the top 2 under 18 surfers in Queensland. Liam O’Brien has won the Qld Title, and will join fellow Burleigh surfer, Thomas Woods (The current Qld Open Champion) in the QWuiksilver Pro Trials in March 2017.

Liam O’Brien and Maddy Job (Who is just turning 16) will now be off to the Australian Junior Titles!! Our club is going ahead in leaps and Bounds – We now have the Qld Open and Junior Champion, and currently Burleigh surfer Lucy Callister is off to Europe to compete in the World Junior Titles!!

We are Red, We are White We are Surfing Dynamite!! Who are, who are who we? We are the crew from Burleigh!!!!!

See the press release below from Surfing Queensland:-

Competitors on finals day of the 2016 Queensland Junior Surfing Titles were greeted with stellar conditions at the preeminent off-the-wall bank, which Duranbah has to offer. The battlefield was complimented with clean waves in the 3ft range, providing the young juniors with loads of scoring potential which was sure to bolster competition for the final day of their 2016 State Title campaigns.

Capitalising on that scoring potential was none other then Liam O’Brien (Burleigh Heads, QLD) who has been in-form throughout the duration of this years State Title series. The local from Burleigh Heads has had his eye on the golden ticket into the 2017 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast Trials well before the beginning of this year’s series and was today successful in taking it home.

With the likes of Max Kearney (Tugun, QLD), fellow Burleigh Heads local Maddy Job and Kalani Wulf (Pacific Paradise, QLD) in the final match-up, Liam’s task was no easy feet but his ability to display speed, power and flow within his dynamic surfing, he was able to defeat those respectively and has been crowned as this year’s blue ribbon Under 18 Boys State Champion.

Out of a total 6 heats surfed in Liam’s 2016 Queensland Junior Surfing Titles campaign, Liam was successful in winning all but one of his heats which he still finished second place.

Not long before the excitement concluded in the Under 18 Boys final, the Under 18 Girls final already had everyone on the edge of their seats. The stack round of eight ensured that only the best from this division were competing with the likes of Zahli Kelly (Wooloowin, QLD), Ebony Wilson, (Elanora, QLD), Amber Dods (Sunrise Beach, QLD) and Kiani Dobbyn (Palm Beach, QLD) successful in making it through a tough battle into the women’s final.

In the end it was Zahli’s dominance which couldn’t be matched as she had a strangle hold on the heat from start to finish. The win not only mean’s she’s made the Queensland Team but she will also be joining Liam O’Brien at next year’s Quiksilver & Roxy Pro Trials where she may even have the chance to compete up against the worlds best in the Championship Tour.

There were no signs of those in the Under 16 Boys division holding off as competition remained fierce right down to the dying seconds of the coveted final. After making his intentions clear in his semi-final, Coolangatta’s Jagger Bartholomew was quick to apply pressure in the all-important final against Kai Tandler (Coolangatta, QLD), Taj Stokes (Buddina, QLD) and Josh Boyle (Currumbin, QLD).

Jaggar’s game plan proved to be no match for those in the stacked final where he continued to build on his score line and apply pressure resulting in an overall first place finish above those respectively in event two of the Queensland State Titles.

Not to be outdone was silver medalist, Kai Tandler who despite finishing second in both events, finished first in the overall series ratings with a total 150 points on the strength of two second place finishing results.

The series win for Tandler puts him in the hot seat as one which others will be keeping a close eye on as they come into the 2016 Australian Junior Surfing Titles at Phillip Island later this year.

Local contender Piper Harrison (Coolangatta, QLD) dominated the field of Under 16 Girls and took out first place for event two of the Queensland Junior Titles. Piper’s win today, backed with her first place finish in event one on the Sunshine Coast grants her the 2016 Under 16 Girls State Championship over Holly William (Buddina, QLD) and Shaye Leeuwendal (Currumbin, QLD) who finished second and third respectively.

The podium finish for the golden trio warrants them a spot in the team to represent Queensland at the forthcoming Australian Junior Titles reinforcing the overall strength of the team in maroon.
