The Hoey Moey Coffs Harbour Boardriders Club is one of the longest running clubs in Australia, having been an integral part of the Coffs Coast surfing community since 1965.

After a successful 50th reunion celebration, presented by Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew, the club was further recognised on the national stage with the prestigious honour of being named Boardriders club of the year for 2016 and also getting the award again in 2018.

The club has a simple but strong ethos:

“We are a strong proud family club with a focus on building great friendships and future champions”

Without the support of the community and past and future sponsors this simply wouldn’t be possible and as you’ll see by our following list of achievements, we plan on continuing to position ourselves as one of the Coffs Coast most revered sporting clubs.

CHBC Participation & Promotion of Community Events

Applied and received The Local Sports Defibrillator Grant Program which allocates $4 million over 4 years to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s).
