Huge Result From The Swellnet Board Yard Sale
Windy, wet weather couldn't deter keen board sellers and buyers from making the Swellnet Secondhand Board Yard Sale the biggest yet last Sunday.
Raising money for Lifeline and the Swellnet team which will be competing in the Lifeline Classic Sunday week, it again ended up being one of the highlights of the calendar year for the local surfing community.
Over 200 boards were on sale with just over $3,000 raised for Lifeline. This is the biggest and best event we've held so far. The terrible surf combined with Father's Day helped to overcome the temperamental weather with some absolute bargains going down.
Matty Chojnacki had the highest selling board, a Bowman Shapes gun that went for $1,050 to young local charger Joff Burney.
I'm sure they'll be sharing the lineup next big clean swell.
The $3,012 raised on the day takes the Swellnet team total to just over $4,500, just below our target of $5,000. There's less than two weeks to go until the Classic, so if you'd like to donate to a great cause and push our team over that 5k mark, it'd be very much appreciated.
See you on Sunday the 18th and here's to an even bigger board sale in 2023.
