With over 200 contestants paddling out at Broken Head on the long weekend for the 39th annual Byron Bay Boardriders Ben King Memorial, the event was yet another awesome date on the local surfing calendar.

Though the skies threatened on all three days, it was mostly dry for spectators with a few wet patches on the beach.

The final day produced some great waves for surfers and competition was hot for the prizes.

Organisers say that yet again the level of surfing throughout the weekend was nothing short of excellent and they are proud to be able to attract such amazing talent to the event across all divisions.

There were standout performances in all divisions and none more so than in the finals of the Open Men’s division which saw Luke Stickley dominate over Jimmy Gilmore, Elliot Paerere-Reid and James Wood.
