SURFER takes on boxing

PROFESSIONAL surfer Bobby Martinez dropped his board and donned the gloves last week.

Martinez sparred with Australia’s Surfing Life magazine’s Scott Chapman at Varsity Lakes’ Elevate Fitness and the Gold Coast Mail’s own Blainey Woodham was present to capture the moment.

Gym owner Gavin Topp said Martinez was involved in the Fight Like a Pro 10-week training program.

The boxing program culminates with 24 men who have never boxed competitively entering the ring at the Southport Sharks on March 18.
