FISHBOWL Surftag Heading to D'Bah for QLD Qualifier

Snapper Rocks Surfriders and D'Bah Boardriders Start Title Defence

Boardriding Clubs from Queensland and Northern NSW will be heading to Duranbah Beach this Sunday for the 2019 FISHBOWL Surftag QLD Qualifier.

With both Men's and Women's divisions being contested, Snapper Rocks Surfriders (Men) and D'Bah Boardriders (Women) will start their Australian Title defence with the top eight men's teams and top four women's teams qualifying to the FISHBOWL Surftag Australian Championships being held at Queenscliff Beach, Sydney in May.

With an overall increase in Women's teams contesting the Australian Series, D'Bah have confirmed their winning team from last year will be on deck this Sunday at the QLD Qualifier.

Audrey and Grace Styman-Lane, Brodie and Amiya Doyle and Freya Prumm will be up against teams from Cabarita, Burleigh Heads, North End and Currumbin Alley.

In the Men's Division the Association of Veteran Surfers will be competing for the first time in Surftag's 18 year history. The Veteran's will confirm their team on the morning of the event and have named a solid squad that includes Adam Cross, Tommy Melville, Tony Watene, Phil Rowlings, Steve Herriott and Dan Johnson. Veteran Surfers President Matt Hoare is pumped to be competing against the best Boardriding Clubs in the region, "The boys are really excited to be surfing in an event with such a great history", Hoare said. "We love the tag team format and hopefully this is the first of many years for our club competing in the Surftag Series".

Boardriding Clubs competing on the weekend include LeBa, Byron Bay, Kingscliff, Cabarita, D'Bah, Snapper Rocks, Kirra, Currumbin Alley, Palm Beach, Burleigh Heads, North End, Veteran Surfers, WindanSea and North Shore.
