Get Involved – Fall 2022
“The future is local.”
A great new community created and supported organization worth checking out is the Monmouth County Boardriders, that our very own Mark “Gilly” helped form. Take a moment to learn more about the organization and how to become involved in your local club.
Working in unison with the South Jersey Boardriders, this non-profit organization takes its inspiration from the world famous Australian Boardriders Clubs by providing inter-club competition, hometown pride and charitable works. Boardriders provides the growth of a broad-based approach to surf contests by integrating generations and genders of surfers to compete for their respective home towns in a team format. This instills a communal spirit contrary to the selfish endeavor of traditional surfing competitions. Membership in the club is not restricted to only those who want to compete for their towns, it’s quite the contrary. The Boardriders is designed to broaden the base of surfing throughout our beautiful collection of beach towns.
On October 22nd for the first time ever each of the four ocean facing NJ counties (Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean, and Monmouth) competed in Sea Isle City for bragging rights and the statewide title. Congrats to Cape May County on taking the win, and Monmouth County had a great showing taking 2nd place.
