Attention all bodyboarders wishing to compete in an event with ‘POWER’. This year’s Emerald Surf City Brett Young Memorial Trials looks set to get underway this Sunday (5th July) with swell forecasts predicting a solid 2-3m South swell to rumble the N.S.W East Coast.

On hand will be some of the world’s most talented bodyboarders fighting their way through a maximum of four heats to reach the final and a spot into The 2009 Nomad Shark Island Challenge. The lucky four competitors who place 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th will meet up with the 16 invited bodyboarders for their chance at the $10,000 ‘Winner Takes All’ format.
