CHARLIE Holt came up with a 10-point ride during the day, but it wasn't enough to overcome Chase O'Leary for the open men's division title at Town Beach on Sunday.
In Port Macquarie Bodyboarding Club's monthly August competition, it was a battle between two as O'Leary and Holt traded waves.
Brodey Brockmann and Jones Russell also competed well on the day.
Dylan Short took out the dropknee, while Stephen Wasson (masters), Oliver Whyte (cadets) and Jasper Hill (grommets) won their respective divisions.
Association secretary Carissa Dwyer said they had 18 heats throughout the day which was a "good turnout."
"It was good to see everyone was getting back into it after (those colder months) and the conditions were really good," she said.
"Everyone likes the breakwall - especially our grommets and cadet divisions because that's where they learn."
Competitors had to battle for their waves which peaked at about four feet in the middle of the day.
"We had a lot of surfers in the competition area which was a bit disappointing so we had to send a few of the cadets out to stop the surfers dropping in on them," Dwyer said.
"But our competition keeps on going from strength to strength and that's probably due to the teams challenge (earlier in the year)."
