ICONS AND FUTURE STARS TO HEADLINE NUDIE AUSTRALIAN BOARDRIDERS BATTLE NATIONAL FINAL IN NEWCASTLE.
Published on 13/05/2021

Former World Number eight Josh Kerr will bookend a Snapper Rocks team primed to challenge for the title at this year’s nudie Australian Boardriders Battle National Series Final this Saturday and Sunday, May 15th and 16th.

‘Kerrsy’ lines up in a strong team that includes the likes of Jay Phillips, Sheldon Simkus, Kobie Enright and Jaggar Bartholomew.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve pulled on the jersey for Snapper in the National Final so I’m really excited about this weekend. We have a great young squad with the experience of Jay Phillips and I to balance the team. We have a proud history of winning the event and hope to get another trophy for the cabinet this year!”

Other big names set to surf for their clubs include young guns Molly Picklum (North Shelly), Caleb Tancred (Avoca), Ellie Harrison (Torquay), Sophie McCulloch ( North Shore) and Dylan Moffat (North Narrabeen).

Moffat, who recently put on quite a performance in front of his home crowd as a Wildcard in the Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic WSL Championship Tour event, is well aware of the calibre of surfer the nudie Australian Boardriders Battle National Final attracts.

Dylan Moffat said “There’s a long list of really amazing surfers competing in this year’s Final. We at North Narrabeen feel we have a really well-rounded team and can’t wait to see how deep we can go in the comp come the Sunday afternoon, history shows we are always a big shot at the title!”
