Mac Attack: Local surf family launches Surftag series

“Surftag is such a sick event,” 16-year-old Jack Macdonald said at the Manly Club launch of the tag-team surf series kicking off at Dee Why on Saturday.

“It’s like, not which team has the best surfers. It’s which team puts together the best heat on the day. Which team can do it all in roughly eight minutes each.

“So yeah – it’s pretty sick.”

Surftag, the brainchild of Queenscliff Boardriders Club life member Steve ‘Harro’ Harrison, is back after two sick (in the bad way) Covid-afflicted years.

The series pits boardriding clubs against each other in fast-moving, relay-style surf action.

It’s frenetic, it’s passionate. And the surf at Dee Why on Saturday is predicted to be small but perfect.

On Saturday teams will contest the Junior (U/18s) event before they’ll come from across Australia for Grommets (U/14s), Masters (O/40s), women’s and men’s events in September and October.
