Western Australia’s longest running and most prestigious inter-club surfing competition, the Surf Boardroom Surf League presented by Rip Curl is set to sizzle on Scarborough Beach this Saturday, with eight of WA’s best boardriding clubs preparing to compete.

Surf League first ran back in 1986 and ever since it has been a breeding ground of stoke and excitement amongst WA boardriders clubs, who’ll converge on Scarborough Beach to compete for over $5,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs.

The Surf Boardroom Surf League embodies what Australian sport is all about; mateship, team spirit, loyalty and  camaraderie. 

Surf League’s unique competition format will see clubs nominate their six strongest surfers (4 x open age surfers, 1 x Over-35 master, and 1 x Under-18 junior), with each surfers best two scores added together for an overall team total.

2023 celebrates the 31st year that local surf retailer, The Surf Boardroom has supported this iconic event which has become a rite of passage for many of WA’s best boardriding clubs and surfers. Since 1992 The Surf Boardroom has provided the opportunity for mate to verse mate and club to verse club, in a fun, exciting, but highly competitive environment.

“The Surf Boardroom is proud to be supporting the Surf League for over 30 years. We believe the event showcases grass roots surfing at its best,” said the Surf Boardroom’s Geoff Counsel. “The rivalries built up over three decades brings out the best between competitors and their supporters to make the Surf League a great event to watch and participate in.”

Yallingup Boardriders Club will be out to capture their third consecutive Surf League victory and hot off their success at the Australian Boardriders Battle last month the club is brimming with confidence. 

“We love the Surf League event and everything is encompasses,” said Yallingup stalwart Matt Wise. “We’re looking to prove we are the best club in WA and think we’ve got the talent to prove it.”

Yallingup will be challenged by boardrider clubs from Margaret River, Surf Beach, Cottesloe, City Beach, Scarborough, Trigg Point, Trigg Junior and Mullaloo, who will all be out to make the most of the warm summer like conditions forecast for Saturday. 

“Boardriding clubs are a great part of the surfing culture here in Australia,” said Surfing WA Events Manager Justin Majeks. “Surfing is such an individual sport and events like the Surf League offer such a different vibe and it’s always exciting to watch and you know this is the one event clubs want to win.”

The 31st Surf Boardroom Surf League will once again combine with WA’s fave action-packed sand & land festival, the Groundswell Festival presented by City of Stirling. 

The Groundswell Festival is 3 days of non-stop surf, skate & sport at Scarborough Beach. Beyond the surf, skate bowl and courts, spectators can dip their toes into loads of other FREE activities, including complete wellness, sustainability and entertainment programs, plus the return of crowd fave the 78 Hub & Festival Village!
