Club Spotlight: Kawana Boardriders


Competing in the Usher Cup for the second time in a row, Kawana Boardriders Club (KBC) are pumped to showcase their club and skills to a wider audience.

Situated on the Sunshine Coast, KBC is a grassroots family-orientated club at heart. They hold monthly club rounds that garner the participation of all age groups from 5-year-olds to 65-year-olds.

KBC has placed in many club team events including the Queensland leg of the Australian Boardriders Battle (ABB) where they finished 4th and qualified for the National final in Newcastle in February.

KBC’s president Denby Stokes said the Usher Cup is a great team bonding experience and creates camaraderie to develop club members. “As Kawana Boardriders Club is a growing club, to have the opportunity for our surfers to compete in competitions like the Usher Cup, it enables our young club members to aspire to one day compete in these types of competitions,” Stokes said.

Denby said the current team selection for the day is not yet set in stone.

“We will be selecting the team soon however some of our surfers would include Zeb Stokes our current U18 Queensland State Champion, ranked 2nd Australian U18 and up and coming Pro Junior competitor. He is also a past Australian Team member that competed at the ISA Junior World Championships” she said.

“Jahly Stokes, our current U16 Queensland State Champion, up and coming Pro junior competitor and current U14 girls Australian Champion”
