Lismore’s Tom Avery has won the longboard division of the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles for the second year in a row.

The event was held at Bells Beach, on the traditional land of the Wada Wurrung people, in Victoria over the last week of June.

‘I’m stoked to bring the title back to Bundjalung country where the longboard is such a big part of our town’s culture,’ he said.

Tom surfed a board designed by Ed Sinnot of ESP Surfboards.
