Boomerang Beach Boardriders wrapped up its final club contest of the year on Sunday, November 15.
Held at Blueys Beach, the event saw Ross Cadden claim his second win in as many days after he took out the prestigious King of the Box contest at Port Stephens on Saturday.
Cadden finished ahead of Jay Pink, Oscar Salt and Nat Watts in the open men's final and was confident he'd done enough to be named club champion for the year.
"I had to win the last comp to win overall," Ross said.
"It's the best feeling ever."
Given how little swell was on offer along the coast, president Adam Salt said the club was once again fortunate to score contestable waves.
"It hung in there all day at Blueys," he said.
"It was pretty consistent."

Mr Salt said the level of surfing also remained high, with everyone making the most of the average conditions.
Leila Salt took out the open women's final ahead of current NSW over-35 women's champion Mel Bartz, with Lara Moltzen finishing third.
Jay Pink backed up his second in the open men's final with a win in the juniors, while fellow open men's finalist Oscar Salt finished runner-up.
Like Cadden, Pink was carrying added confidence on the day after finishing second in the junior division at the King of the Box event the day before.
Steve Elliott won the masters, while Sam Beavis took out the cadets and Koby Salt came out on top in the under-12 boys.
Mr Salt said it was a successful year for Boomerang Beach Boardriders considering the disruption COVID-19 had caused a lot of sporting organisations, with the club only missing two contests because of the pandemic.
He said it wasn't uncommon for the club to miss two contests in an ordinary year due to unfavourable conditions.

COVID has caused the club to change its plans for its end-of-year presentation however, with a casual daytime affair arranged at North Boomerang Beach in order to adhere to the current health restrictions.
The overall winners of each division will be named at the presentation.
"I think it's going to be an open air event, weather pending," Mr Salt said.
"It's going to be a fun tag team event; we've never done that."
The event is scheduled for Saturday, December 12.
The club's first contest for the 2021 season will be held on the third Sunday in February.
