Close to nearly 50 members and some of their family attended the All Girl Surfriders annual camp out round which was held at Arrawarra earlier in May.

The swell was on the rise for the event and some fun waves were had by all.

‘Camp out round has become a great tradition over the years and is a great opportunity to go and explore some of the amazing breaks that are not too far away from Lennox Head,’ All Girl Surfriders co-president Berenice Roberts said.

The club is also hosting the Ma Bendall and Phyllis O’Donnell Memorial Shield Inter Club Tag Team competition on the Sunday morning of the June long weekend.

This is an annual event between all female boardriders clubs. This year the mid north coast boardriders are coming up from Bonny Hills to re-contest for the Shield.

All are welcome to cheer on the local teams.
