Go Willy! NMD Bodyboard comp this weekend!
The 2010 NMD/Mountain Dew BBSNZ (Bodyboard Surfing New Zealand) Tour is set to kick off on Auckland Anniversary Weekend, the 30th and 31st January 2010 with the 2010 NMD/Mountain Dew Arato Pro at Sunset Beach, Port Waikato.
For the third year in a row Port Waikato will be the location of one of the biggest events of the NMD/Mountain Dew BBSNZ Tour. With over 70 competitors in 2009 the Port Waikato event has been gifted with excellent waves the past two years and hopes are high that the trend will continue for 2010.
With a host of New Zealand's top bodyboarding talent on show at this event it is set to be a great spectacle. 2009 Open Men¹s tour champion Mitchell Tombleson (BOP) will be hoping to continue his excellent form from last year with a strong showing at Port Waikato. 2009 Dropknee and U18 tour champion Luke Elliot (BOP) will both return for another crack at the NMD/Mountain Dew Arato Pro and will hope to make a strong start to the competition year. Local youngster Willy Nepia-Murray will be backing up from taking out the Amateur and U16 tour titles in 2009 and will hope to become more of a force in the U18 and Open divisions through 2010, especially at his home break.
