16-year-old Angus Budd was chosen to represent our community from his laid-back approach to life in general and his ability to carve up waves and make the most out of any situation. An apprentice builder in his first year, we love the energy Angus brings with him wherever he goes.
Angus competes in the open division of our local Coffs Harbour Boardriders Club, as well as regional, state titles and various comps. He won the U18's in the 2019 Champ & Gazza Surf Fest, CHBC open "B" club champion, he has and continues to, represent CHBC in the junior teams for inter-club competition and is knocking on the door of representation in the open teams over the coming years.
It will not surprise us if he is selected in the train-on squad for the elite team competing in the nudie Australian boardriders battle. He is a bright light, really starting to mature as a surfer, and we are yet to see the best of this kid and it is exciting to see what will happen with his surfing in the coming years.
To top it off, he is a really great person. His other sponsors include Vissla wetsuits and Coopers Surf Australia
