The president of Forster Tuncurry Bodyboard Association (FTBA) Aaron Dodds was recognised at Riptide Magazine's 2014 Bodyboarder of the Year Awards in Sydney recently.
Dodds was honoured for his dedication to the Australian bodyboarding community particularly for his work with FTBA with a community award.
"I was really unaware. I wasn’t expecting it at all," Dodds said.
