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.
Moneys collected from the August event were donated to the NSW Cancer Council, Lennox Surf Life Saving Club and the Disabled Surfing Association.
Lennox Head surfing identity James Wood is the new president of Lennox-Ballina Boardriders after the retirement of long-serving president Don Munro.
