Murwillumbah High student Brad Harrington’s bodyboarding skills are taking him all the way to Bali.

Murwillumbah High School student Brad Harrington recently won the 2018 R/U Open Men’s Queensland State Bodyboard Championships.

As a three-time WA Under 18 State Champion he competes at the national titles every year and has also landed a number of sponsorship deals.

He is about to travel to Bali to make some promotional video footage for his sponsors.

In Bali, Brad will be going on a number of surfing trips with World Champion Ryan Hardy and professional coach Aiden Salmon, who co-own Bali Bodyboarding School.

Brad’s ultimate goal is to compete on the world tour. He is one step closer to his dream as he is due to compete at Kiama in July at the world tour qualifying trials.
