Jacob Lollback Memorial Board Race Day
The Jacob Lollback Memorial Board Race Day is held at Yamba’s Main Beach at the start of each season to commemorate the life of Jacob Lollback, who tragically drowned in a diving accident on the 22nd September 2009, at the age of 20.
Jacob was a champion board paddler who began his lifesaving career as an 8-year-old nipper at Yamba. He went on to win three consecutive Australian board race championships – Under 17’s in 2006, and Under 19’s in 2007 and 2008. He was widely recognised as the fastest board paddler in Australia.
