Its back.............Back again.......... the ABA Tour is coming back to one of WA's best bodyboarding waves. WA's coastline is littered with wedges and reef breaks that will make any hardened bodyboarder weak at the knees. Mandurah Wedge is one of these spots and the ABA Tour along with Surfing WA State Rounds are coming to town in the first week of February.

Having missed WA in 2016 the ABA Tour has promised to come back bigger and better on the weekend of the 3rd to 5th of February and we are frothing so hard here at GE to be able to throw our support behind such an event.
2015's event saw a number of WA's best bodyboarder's show case there abilities and skills at the notorious wedge. A number a lesser known lads but still absolute chargers in their own right, James Walsh to name one, made it through the quarters and even another Jake Metcalfe, made semis, all involved put it to those Pros that made the trip over. In the end WA bodyboarding's big gun Ryan Hardy ended up taking it out in a close and tight tussle.
Whilst we all wait for who will be venturing over to the West this time to compete,we can be assured either way that it will be an event not to miss.
