Australia’s best professional surfers will descend on Sydney this Saturday to surf for their local boardriders club as sixteen of Australia’s best clubs meet at North Narrabeen beach for the 2009 Jim Beam SurfTag National final.

These 16 Boardriding Clubs have qualified from regional eliminations and all will be chasing bragging rights as Australia’s premier Boardriding Club along with the richest prize pool in club surfing in Australia with $12000 allocated for 1st place.

No other event in Sydney can boast a field that includes the likes of Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson, Tom Whittaker and Josh Kerr.

The clubs these surfers compete for are where their illustrious careers began and with club passion driving these surfers, the action is certain to be amazing.

North Narrabeen are the defending Jim Beam Surftag champions and with local knowledge again in their favour will go into this year’s event confident they can win three in a row, but, never has a field of this quality lined up and this years winning club will legitimately lay claim to being Australia’s top boardriding club.

In conjunction with the Jim Beam Surftag Final, Friday March 13 will see 60 elite Boardriding Club champions from all over Australia compete for the Jim Beam Boardriders Cup – an individual championship national field selecting surfers from Boardriding Clubs from all over Australia. This field will include surfers like Luke Dorrington (Snapper Rocks), Toby Martin (Dee Why), Dion Atkinson (Seaford South Australia) and former world number three Dave Macauley (Margaret River WA).

The FCS Manufacturers Cup will also make up a part of the action which will see Surfboard Labels JS (QLD), Warner (NSW), Murriginals (WA) and Island (VIC) go head to head for the $3000 winners cheque along with the title of being the best manufacturers surfing team in Australia!

• South Coast – Werri and Ulladulla
