Even though the Federal government refuses to take responsibility for the slow rollout of COIVID vaccines across the country you can still have your say on its rollout locally.

The Newy crew are back by popular demand, bigger and stronger than ever.

The New Brighton Boardriders have a long history of talented surfers emerging from the club, some of whom have gone on to compete professionally.

If you’re looking for fun or wanting to develop your surfing skills, come and join, all levels of surfers are welcome. We have Men’s and Women’s divisions for all ages. Comps will be held on the third Sunday of each month, with the inaugural club round this Sunday June 23 at New Brighton Beach (the car park behind the New Brighton Shop) at 7am sharp. There will be a BBQ and prizes on the day.

For any further information contact Crystal on 0416 924 028 or Brett on 0410 787
