Boardriders clubs are an Australian surfing institution. For generations they have been the breeding ground for our champions, helped keep Australian surf culture thriving, served up more sausages than Bunnings, and also kept many cheeky grommets in-check with their monthly servings of grommet abuse via the elders.

One of Australia’s most successful boardriders clubs is Merewether Surfboard Club. Here some of it’s past champions, respected elders and current standout performers fill us in on the history behind the club.
