South Coast Boardriders Club (SCBR) claimed a dominant win at the sixth event of the nudie Australian Boardriders Battle series at Waitpinga Beach. 

Three of SA's top boardriders clubs gathered at Waitpinga beach where they battled punchy three to foot waves.

While conditions were tough the cream rose to the top and SCBR club showed just how much depth they have as a club. Tayla Hanak was a standout and the ever consistent Khai Adams and Max Longhurst sealed yet another victory for SCBR. 

The Milwaukee Heavy Duty Hack award was presented to South Coast Boardriders Khai Adams who laid down some massive hacks during the event making him the obvious choice for the award. 

"Yeah conditions were tricky out there but the odd bomb came through and if you were on one of those it was pretty fun," Khai said. 

The nudie Australian Boardriders Battle Series will involve more than 60 of Australia's best boardriders clubs in eight state qualifying rounds and will culminate in a National final in NSW in February 2018 for 24 clubs.
