The Margaret River Boardriders Club has taken out the 2017 Surf Boardroom Surf League, at Scarborough Beach, in Western Australia. The Surf League is the longest running and most prestigious interclub surf contest in the Golden State. The first edition dates back to 1986. Surf Boardroom has been supporting it for 25 consecutive years. Australia probably has one of the most active surf club scenes in the world and, in this event, nine regional and metropolitan teams from City Beach, Two Rocks, Geraldton, Cowarmaup Bay, Trigg Point, Contacio, Yallingup, Scarborough, and Margaret River proved it clearly.
