Cabarita takes an early lead

THE Kirra Teams Challenge began yesterday with 36 of Australia’s best boardriding clubs converging at Kirra.

More than 288 surfers will compete across three days of intensive competition until one club is crowned and takes home the iconic eagle trophy and prestigious title of Australia’s best boardriding club.

Cabarita boardriders were in the outright lead yesterday afternoon after three straight victories.

Kirra, Narrabeen and Duranbah were close behind with two wins and a second and Snapper trailed in sixth position with three seconds.

The competition will step up over the weekend with Joel Parkinson’s heat set to boost Snapper’s results today and Mick Fanning predicted to win for Kirra tomorrow.
