D’Bah Boardriders Women’s Team Win Third Straight Australian Title.
D’Bah have taken out the 2017 Sailor Jerry Surftag Australian Championships at North Narrabeen Beach over the weekend. D’Bah Boardriders have gone back to back to back winning their third straight Sailor Jerry Surftag Australian Title. The team of Amiya Doyle (7.80), Freya Prumm (19.20), Audrey Styman-Lane (24.00), Grace Styman-Lane (11.76) and Brodie Doyle (6.67) came from behind to finish ahead of fellow Gold Coast Club North End by 9.16. Audrey Styman-Lane raised the bar on her first wave locking in a near perfect 9.67 which she backed up with a 7.16 Powerwave.
Amiya Doyle can’t wait for next year’s Series, “The Sailor Jerry Surftag is my favourite contest to surf in,” Doyle said. “The D’Bah girls and I are very proud to have won back to back to back Titles. The other teams put up a massive fight and were absolutely ripping at North Narrabeen, we can’t wait for the next one.”
North End’s Sayaka Muramatsu posted the highest two wave total in the Women’s final with 26.43. The stylish natural footer scored an 8.43 on her first wave, which she improved on with a 9.00 on her Powerwave. The second place finish is a huge result for the Northern Gold Coast based club as it was the first time their Women’s team had ever competed.
