A 13th place for LeBa at the Australian Boardriders Battle was a reminder of not only how tough the competition is but also just how cruel the sport of surfing, particularly team competition, can be.
The red hot LeBa team that was well backed for a podium finish in this year’s event fell in the first round of the final day of the TAG team section. Pipped in the final second by the smallest of margins the result was a full body blow to the Club. We now have a long 12-month wait to get another chance at the biggest prize in Australian Club Surfing.
The first LeBa Club round of the year is scheduled for the first weekend in March. Hopefully cyclone OMA has made her way north and there’s waves to hold the round in.
