If the stakes weren’t already huge, World Surfaris has upped the winning prize for the nudie Australian Boardriders Battle to unbelievable heights!
Held early next year in Newcastle, the National Final winning team will be sent on the trip of a lifetime to Kingfisher Bay Resort in the Mentawai’s, worth a whopping $30,000! Garuda Indonesia will also fly the team to Padang.
Six surfers from the winning Boardriders Club will be guided throughout their stay by World Surfaris ambassador David Scard, where they will be fortunate enough to enjoy the entire resort to themselves, and be treated to some of Indonesia’s most famous surf breaks like Lances Left, HT’s, Bintangs, Macaronis and Greenbush.
Filmed content from the team’s adventures will be featured on Surfing Australia and mySURF.tv’s digital & social media networks, as well as in the Surfing Australia Weekly Wave EDM presented by nudie, and broadcasted as part of Surfing Australia TV on GO!
Kingfisher Bay Resort owner Ben Pike said he was very excited to be involved and is looking forward to hosting to winning team.
“We are extremely excited to be involved in this capacity this year and look forward to sharing a couple of waves together with the winning team,” Pike said.
