BODYBOARDER Brodey Brockmann admits he simply wants to land a trick at this weekend's David "Goose" Gosby Memorial contest at Lighthouse Beach.
He should have no problems doing that as he not only aims to defend his title, but continue on the path to claiming the inaugural Triple Crown that covers competitions in Forster, Port Macquarie and the Central Coast.
In previous years, the three events have stood alone until organisers joined forces this year hoping to place a higher level of prestige around bodyboarding competitions.
"I think it's probably one of the better things to come out of the east coast since the Aussie tour," Brockmann said of the concept.
"It gives the kids more chances to get up and travel away for a competition and have a crack at some waves in different areas."
Brockmann said the event would bring more competition to the whole of the east coast rather than each individual location where each competition was held.
But Port Macquarie was one the locals always wanted to win for obvious reasons.
"This is my fourth year doing the Goose and each year I've been getting a little bit better," Brockmann said.
"First year I got knocked out in the first round, second year I came away with a fourth and last year I was first so hopefully I can go back to back.
"Everyone waits all year for it and all the premier boys who have been some of the best on the tour go in it so it's always good to have a crack with the bigwigs."
Brockmann finished with a semi-final result at the Jeff Wilcox Memorial in Forster which sees him sitting in fifth position on the Triple Crown standings ahead of this weekend's event.
With Port Macquarie being the middle competition of the three, most surfers will see it as a chance to make their move up the ladder.
"I'm about fifth in the points for the memorial Triple Crown which is a good start," Brockmann said.
"I'd love to go and win it because the first one will always be the most prestigious one."
All the action starts at 8am from Saturday to Monday at Lighthouse Beach or Town Beach depending on conditions.
