EBB State Bodyboard Series 2009

The WA bodyboarding community is currently buzzing with anticipation of the first EBB State Bodyboard Series this weekend. With a solid swell forecast and favourable winds, the opening round of competition is poised to take place at one of WA’s most infamous breaks, the Mandurah Wedge.

The opening round of the three event series offers WA competitors a chance to compete in some of the best waves the state has to offer. Mandurah Wedge is a high performance break that has been a mecca for many bodyboarders lately and will hopefully attract some new and exciting entrants.

This new location is a bold step forward for the development of bodyboarding within Western Australia. With a number of WA bodyboarders competing at the highest level, this is a huge opportunity for some emerging talent to forge a name for themselves in arguably one of the states best bodyboarding waves.

After the recent success of WA’s Ryan Hardy at the IBA World Tour Event at Pipeline, the whole state is currently talking about this event.


A stellar line-up of WA hottest bodyboarders who are eager to check out the action include, Alex Halesy (Woodvale), Lewy Finnegan (Ocean Reef), Ben Vietch (Margaret River) and Ryan Hands (Mandurah). All of which are likely contenders to represent WA at the Bodyboard Australasia National Titles held at D-Bah Queensland in November this year.

Surfing WA Events Manager Justin Majeks is excited about the prospects of waves this weekend.

“Mandurah Wedge and the surrounding breaks provide some of the most consistent and contestable waves in the whole metro area. With the forecasts looking awesome for later in the week the standard should be great and provide a true spectacle for those willing to step up to the challenge.”

“WA has been leading the charge in the sport lately and I think its important to reward the competitors with the best waves we can. We’ve never ran an event at the Wedge so hopefully this can open up the doors for some new and exciting locations in the future.” Said Majeks.

Entries for this event closes on Wednesday March 11th and are filling up quickly, so be sure to get in quick to avoid disappointment.

The EBB State Bodyboard Series is proudly supported by Exclusively Bodyboarding , Unite Clothing, SunSmart, and Surfing Western Australia.
