2016 & 2018 Australian Club Of The Year
I am the President James Wood.
Here at LEBA, we are fortunate to have the strength of 2 coastal towns (Lennox Head and Ballina) joined to form one board-riders club. This gives us an amazing variety of surf breaks to hold our club rounds each month.
Our club rounds are the first Saturday of the month from March – September for U16’s Cadets through to Over 50’s Legends. We try to make our club rounds a fun and social day for members and their families, where you can come down to beach, enjoy a BBQ, have a couple of beers at the end of the day and get smoked in a heat.
The first Sunday of every month we run Little LEBA for Groms in U13’s all the way down to Micros U6’s, which has an amazing family atmosphere and is a fun day for everyone.
LEBA is considered one of the strongest board-riding clubs in Australia having won some of surfing’s most prestigious competitions and awards. The annual Skullcandy Oz Grom Open is considered one of the best junior events in the world and provides an economic boost to our local community as well as raising the bar for junior surfing.
LEBA enjoys giving back to the community and we pride ourselves on having a great team of people in our club, sponsors and businesses supporting us to do so.We have a great Junior Development program for kids looking to compete outside the monthly club round in other interstate events and everyone is welcome.
