THE Ulladulla Boardriders have finished equal 10th in the men’s division at the weekend’s 2017 Sailor Jerry Surftag Australian Championships at North Narrabeen Beach, Sydney.

They finished behind eventual winners Central Coast’s North Shelly Boardriders, while the women’s division was taken out by D’Bah Boardriders – making them back-to-back champions.

"After our round one heat we gained a lot of confidence and it showed us that we can mix it up with the best clubs in Australia," Ulladulla Boardriders’ Adrian Hellman said.

"We didn't perform our best in the challenging conditions in the quarter finals and left feeling like we can go further next year.

"It was a massive effort by Tim Wrench to represent the club on the weekend as he only arrived back in country on Friday night after being in Portugal on his Honeymoon, he jumped at the opportunity to surf for Ulladulla when asked."

Fellow South Coast, the Werri Beach Boardriders, finished in equal seventh.
