Club Spotlight: LEBA Boardriders

They landed smack-bang in the middle of last year’s Usher Cup scorecard, and it’s made the LEBA BRC even hungrier for success in 2023. LEBA surfers finished at 10th place, tying with fellow competitors North End and just two points shy of the 9th place Noosa BRC.

Like many clubs across Australia’s Boardrider community, LEBA enjoy giving back to the community, and pride themselves on a club full of great people who enjoy the full support of the local community.

LEBA boardriders is a club that galvanises the coastal towns of Lennox Head and Ballina on the NSW Far North Coast and was formed when surfers from both towns came together to establish one strong and formidable boardriders club for the region. The club’s geography provides access to an amazing array of surf breaks to conduct club competitions each month.

When it comes to higher honours, LEBA has produced a number of notable surfers, among them Adam Melling and Stu Kennedy, both currently competing on the WSL tour.

Having fun, is always at the heart of everything that LEBA does, according to Club President Ben ”BEEZO” Beesley

“We try to make our club rounds a fun and social day for members and the families, where you can come down to the beach, enjoy a BBQ, have a couple of beers at the end of the day and get smoked in a heat by the pure talent that are members of our club”, Beesley said.

LEBA is considered one of the strongest boardriding clubs in Australia, having won some of surfing’s most prestigious competitions and awards including the annual Skullcandy Oz Grom Open which is widely regarded as one of the best junior events in the world. The club is keen for it’s members to have the opportunity to compete on the international stage when the World Club Challenge gets underway from the 19th to the 22nd of January.
