Currumbin crews edged out
THE mighty Currumbin surfboat crews missed out on claiming their airfares to attend the National Young Guns final at Collaroy in January after failing to win any of the titles on offer at the Kirra Surfstock Festival at the weekend.
With Curumbin and Tugun’s top guns all away at Bribie Island for the Queensland Navy Series, it was Tannum Sands, Picnic Bay and Alexander Headlands that emerged triumphant at Kirra with a display of excellent surf skills to tame the one metre of swell rolling in.
Tannum Sands were particularly impressive in the under-23 men’s division, cruising to victory ahead of the highly fancied Northcliffe crew, with the Currumbin Hornets coming home third.
Especially thrilled at their win in the under-23 women’s race was the Picnic Bay crew.
The far north Queensland crew edged out Southport to take the win, while Alexander Headlands ensured the powerful Gold Coast crews were winless after defeating Bundaberg and Mermaid Beach.
