Emerald NSW Bodyboard State Titles: pride of Australia

Australia is pumped with the second round of the famous Emerald NSW Bodyboard State Titles, brought by the longest running bodyboard club in the world.

The event prepares to crown the 2012 state champions, Cronulla Beach, from 12th-14th July. There will be Open Men and Womens divisions, along with the Drop-Knee and cadets and the frothing grommets as young as ten years old in the grom division.

"The pioneers rode the old paipo boards on the iconic waves at Cronulla Point and Shark Island, which are famous around the world and have been acknowledged as part of the World Surfing reserve", says Brad Whittaker, Sutherland Shire Council’s Manager of Active Communities.

"Some of the biggest names in the sport are drawn to the Sutherland Shire, two-time world champions Ben Player and Jeff Hubbard, Jase Finlay and local Andrew Lester really inspire the young kids and keep bodyboarding in the forefront in Cronulla".

The popularity of the sport in the community has seen the growth and continued support of Emerald, the oldest Bodyboard Club in the world and grass roots supporter since the 1970s. Attracting frothing grommets from everywhere to feast their eyes on the ocean of boards in stock.

The National team will be a combination of the two Emerald NSW Bodyboard State events to form the team.
