Town Beach, Port Macquarie: an iconic riding spot

Jones Russell and Nicole Flemming have conquered the 2011 David 'Goose' Gosby Bodyboarding Memorial, held in Town Beach, Port Macquarie, Australia.

The bodyboarding event is run by the Port Macquarie Bodyboarding Association (PMBA) and honours the lives of those friends who are no longer riding with us: Steve Sonter, Nathan Sallustio, Michael Branch, Benny Hall, John Epplestun, Ben Turner, Andrew Turnham and David Gosby.

It a great day of bodyboarding for the locals and prizes were awarded to the best four riders in each division. Rasta King won the Grommets category, Matthew Guignon took first place in the Cadets and Keegan Cronin was the best bodyboarder of the Drop Knee division.

Rasta King was awarded the Perpetual Trophy, as donated by David Gosby’s brother, Andrew, for the best Under 16 performance. He was also awarded a Turbo bodyboard for his troubles, as was each of the other winners of each division.
