Agents (L to R) from the Lennox Surf Life Saving Club, NSW Cancer Council, Lennox Longboarders and Disabled Surfing Association with their cheques.

Thirty members of the Lennox Longboarders enjoyed their monthly club round earlier this month at Main Beach on a pristine spring day with sun, favourable winds, tides and some swell to make it a fun morning. 

Nathan Mackenzie was a standout surfing his new Amos longboard and threading it with style winning both his heat and first final.

Lennox Head surfing identity James Wood is the new president of Lennox-Ballina Boardriders after the retirement of long-serving president Don Munro. Wood coaches Zahli Kelly from Casuarina, who was selected to attend a training camp with Australia’s shadow Olympic squad. ‘Woody’, as her coach, was also invited to be involved in the training sessions at the World Surf League Surf Ranch owned by eleven-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater.
