Port Macquarie is a breeding ground for talented Bodyboarders and over the years the spot has produced some of the biggest names in the sport. Riders such as Damian King, Michael “Eppo” Eppelstun and Mason Rose have all cut their teeth at this famous spot. The Port Macquarie Bodyboarding Association was formed in 1989 off the back of the Hastings Bodyboard club and the Port Macquarie area soon became known as the Bodyboarding Capital of Australia. The rest as they say is history.
To this day, the area churns out some of the finest riders that compete on every level with the best in the world, and is also one of the hardest places to turn up and just get a wave. The tight knit pack of locals have the spot dialled and every single one of them has an impressive collection of tricks to show off.
