Hyundai Australia is honoured to support a sport which represents such an important part of Australia’s coastal culture and lifestyle.

Hyundai Australian Boardriders Battle.

The Hyundai Australian Boardriders Battle is Australia’s biggest grassroots boardriders event and involves more than 70 of Australia’s best boardrider clubs! Taking place across eight state qualifying rounds, only 24 clubs will come together at the national final to battle it out to become the 2022/23 Australian champions.

Hyundai truly appreciates that boardrider clubs are the lifeblood of Australian surfing. For many young boardriders, this series is the first taste of competitive surfing and the beginning of what for some is a lifelong journey. Hyundai looks forward to supporting Australia’s next generation of surfers along this journey.
