Club Spotlight: Palm Beach Boardriders

The Palm Beach Boardriders club has been an integral part of the Gold Coast surfing community since the 1960s. As a member of both Surfing Queensland and Surfing Australia which is supported by the Australian Sports Commission, the club works hard to establish vital links in the sports development pathway for its members.

With their focus squarely on junior development, the Usher Cup and World Club Challenge provides the perfect platform for club surfers looking to achieve professional surfing goals, along with those looking to represent their country at the Olympics.

Palmy’s club competitions provide its members with vital skills required to pursue a competitive surfing career. Palmy also places a great emphasis on the friendship and support that can be only be found in a club.

A host of the Palm Beach clubs junior surfers have already experienced international competition and under the guidance of legendary Australian surfer and coach Mark Richardson, the Palm Beach BRC will certainly be one of the teams to watch when the Usher Cup is held at Snapper Rocks from the 19th to the 22nd of January 2023.

Each year the club hosts the “Eager Beaver” a two man tag team surf event held in memory of long time club member Nathan “Beaver” Jagger, the event has grown to be the largest of its kind on the Gold Coast, the contest raising awareness for mental health and suicide prevention.
