Western Australia’s longest running and most prestigious inter-club surfing competition, the Surf Boardroom Surf League presented by Rip Curl is set to splash down on Scarborough Beach this Saturday, with seven 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 unbelievable 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.
2022 celebrates the 30th 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 have provided the opportunity for mate to verse mate and club to verse club, in a fun, exciting, but highly competitive environment.
“The Surf League has genuine history here in WA and the event continues to provide a spectacle along Scarborough Beach,” said The Surf Boardroom’s Geoff Counsel. “We’re very proud to support this event and 30 years of support is testament to how strongly we believe in grassroots surfing and what it means to be part of a boardriding club.”
Defending champions Yallingup will take clubs from Albany, Surf Beach, City Beach, Margaret River, Trigg Point and City Beach, who will all benefit from a positive weekend surf forecast.
“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 30th Surf Boardroom Surf League will once again combine with WA’s fave action-packed sand & land festival, the Drug Aware Groundswell Festival presented by City of Stirling.
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! How do you like the sound of beach games, DJs, pop-up markets, live installations, workshops and food trucks?
