Umina Club Champion Drew Courtney has taken out the prestigious Jim Beam Boardriders Cup National Title for the second time in three years after defeating local hero Nathan Webster at North Narrabeen Beach today.

Courtney won the 2006 Jim Beam Boardriders Cup National Title and showed it was no fluke with a string of strong performances to claim victory in classic 4ft waves at North Narrabeen.

Former WCT surfer Webster took advantage of his local knowledge to set up a good lead in the man-on-man final before Courtney stormed home to take the title with a late wave, which the judges gave an 8.0.

The vital late wave gave Courtney a 15.1 to 12.3 victory and saw him collect $5,000 in cash and prizes.

Earlier in the day Courtney disposed of Wollongong Champion Nick Squires 14 to 11.7 in the semi finals while Webster accounted for 2007 runner up Marcus Aboody from Lennox Ballina 11.8 to 10.3 in the other semi final to set up the final showdown.

While Courtney’s Umina club has not progressed to the Jim Beam Surftag National Series, Webster’s performance is a shot in the arm for the North Narrabeen club, which goes into tomorrow’s event as one of the favourites.

North Narrabeen took out the 2007 Jim Beam Surftag Series National Final and has the added advantage of surfing the 2008 Series on home turf.

The 2008 Jim Beam Surftag Series National Final starts at 8.00am tomorrow (Friday) with some of Australia’s best surfers, including World No.2 Taj Burrow and World No.4 Joel Parkinson competing for the clubs.
