With the bodyboarding scene continually growing at phenomenal rates locally, nationally and internationally, IBA Australasia and Surfing Western Australia have agreed to change the dates for the upcoming EBB Pro to allow the best representation from Australian and international riders.

The original dates of the EBB Pro and final State Bodyboarding Round (August 31st – July 2nd) clashed with one of the biggest events on the international bodyboarding calendar, the Arica Chilean Challenge. Given the fact that many Australian riders including WA locals Ryan Hardy, Brad Hughes and Chad Jackson are likely to compete in Chile, as well as 2008 EBB Pro defending champion Michael Novy (QLD) and runner up Dave Winchester (NSW) it was important to try to find an alternative date that would allow the best bodyboarders in the country compete.

Surfing WA Events Manager Justin Majeks explains, “The waiting period for the Arica event went right over the EBB Pro dates, and the clash would have been devastating for the EBB Pro, with many big names likely to attend Chile over WA."

The new dates for the EBB Pro will now be Friday the 4th of September to Sunday the 6th of September 2009, allowing for some great early spring conditions in the South-West of WA, as well as seeing a high profile list of entrants attending.

The 2009 EBB Pro presented by Unite Clothing & Void Wetsuits is aiming for a 4 star rating, which will see the highest points and prizemoney up for grabs in the events history.

Benny Roberts the marketing and team manager for EBB and Void commented on the date change saying, “On behalf of Exclusively Bodyboarding and Void, I can tell you that both parties are stoked with moving the date to September. Hopefully we’ll see some of the countries best riders attending.”
