Ben Player gets behind Sydney Bodyboard Club in 2016

Ever wanted to have a world champion give you personal tips and training while you shred the waves with your mates?

Well you can do just that at Sydney Bodyboard Club this year.

Three times world champion Ben Player has put his hand up to help out aspiring groms at the Sydney Bodyboard Club in 2016.

As part of his role at the club, the Australian bodyboarding legend will be providing competitive feedback to members during competitions throughout the year.

“I’ve decided to give back to my local club competition by joining up with the guys at Sydney Bodyboarding Club and I want to get right behind it,’ Player said.

“I want to get involved, especially with the younger guys. I’m going to be spending time with the kids and help them grow by giving them tips and techniques.

“I think it is a really cool way to help the development side of the sport.”

Player attributes his world title successes to the crucial development stage when he was just a grommet competing in the cadets at Manly Bodyboarding Club.

“That is what really accelerated me into my competitive career and it all comes back to local competition and I think it is so important to get involved with your local club,” he said.

NMD Board Co have also got behind SBC, with a special sponsorship package going to the winners of the A, AA and AAA divisions for 2016.

The Sydney Bodyboard Club sign up will take place on Saturday, February 20 from 10am to 1pm at Bodyboard King in Brookvale, NSW.
