Club Spotlight: Yaroomba Boardriders


Usher Cup is honoured to once again have Yaroomba Boardriders compete in the hybrid surfing event in January 2022. 

Yaroomba Boardriders club was first founded in 2015 when a group of passionate young surfers and close mates began a club in honour of Chris Boyd, better known as ‘Boydy’, a local surfer who tragically passed from a shark attack while he was surfing. 

Since the club was first established, Yaroomba Boardriders club members have dramatically increased, as have their level of skills as surfers. They have members of all ages and genders from Coolum to the greater Sunshine Coast joining this family-oriented club. 

Yaroomba Boardriders Club Contest Director and Manager Zach McCallum said the Yaroomba team is stoked to be a part of such a huge event.

“Usher Cup is a great event, and our surfers all look forward to getting a chance to compete at Rainbow against Australia’s best,” he said.

The club is proud to represent grassroots-level surfing and is eager for their young members to yet again have an experience of a lifetime. Zach details that the Usher Cup provides a much-needed opportunity to propel the club’s young surfers and give them a leg up in the competitive surfing world.

“It is great to show the depth of surfing in the area, there’s a lot of good surfers out there that no one has even heard of. This is their chance to show their stuff to the crowd and other clubs,” he said.

Whilst the club are yet to lock in this year’s team of incredible surfers, there are more than a few junior competitors eager to compete.

“Some surfers that will likely be chosen are Zane Assink, Tom Ferguson and myself,” Zach said

“We are a really young club, but Zane Assink is definitely a kid going places. Number 6 in the hot 100 of 2019.

With such a sensational line-up, we can’t wait to see what these guys bring to Snapper Rocks beach this January.
