Great race today - Kelly Margetts won ahead of Beau O'Brien, Steve Morrison and Andy Davies. Terrene won the women's. Didn't quite catch the top places in the Over 40's but hopefully someone will fill in the gaps.

Here's some great photos from Camo...

Thanks for the shots.

How's the boards flying every which way in the early shots.

Is Andy Davies not sponsored by Naish any more ?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Surfing NSW for putting on such a great event over the past two days. The vibe has been fantastic, can't wait for the next one.....maybe instead of the red noodle a safety cone on the head might look better!!!! GO RICHARD

Best event yet even with the so so surf, such a professionally run event with the commentary, scores read out while you are in your heat.

The BOP was the most fun sup comp type thing I have ever done (first one) no wonder everyone raves about them.

Hey Pete, Kissa won the O40s, I got 2nd, Noel third. Great to see all the QLD crew who came down for it.

Excellent pics. Looked like a good dose of carnage was had by all

How good is Stoksey's cutback on the Fanatic!

Fantastic event to watch, equally as much fun as last year's!
Dogman, trips on his leggie and was last into the water. After the carnage half way through the first lap he comes through on a wave in the harbour bridge stance into 3rd around the turn, classic. Great racing by all the leaders too!

Congratulations to Surfing NSW. Thanks for listening to the competitors. Today's downwinder was unbelievable. How strong was that wind?!?! Well done to the guys up front . Hopefully someone got some photos.

Re: The poor bloke holding the noodle.
Can somebody give him a crash helmet and chest plate.
Drawing the short straw or what ?
