Thrills and spills: South Coast surfboat action at Broulee

It was a rough weekend to be in a surfboat, but crews chose to battle the elements and compete in the first round of the Warilla Bowls Surf Boat Premiership 2021/22.

Crews from as far as Bulli and Cronulla visited Broulee to compete on Saturday and Sunday, November 20-21.

Broulee Surf Club later thanked everyone who made the weekend possible.

"A huge thank you to our amazing ground crew, water safety, first aid, function team and patrol members - it couldn't have run without you," the club said on social media.

"A massive shout out to all the crews who travelled and competed, the officials, and particularly our legend crews who braved pretty undesirable conditions this weekend.

"Well done team!"
