FORMER Lennox Head surf lifesavers Tanyn Lyndon and Brodie Moir are gearing up for the final two rounds of the Nutri-Grain Series in Newcastle this weekend.

Lyndon is currently ninth overall in the ironman with the top six automatically qualifying for next season.

His best result so far is a fifth-placed finish in the second round of the competition.

Ali Day is on top of the leaderboard where he is two points clear of defending champion Shannon Eckstein.

"This has been the toughest title I have contested in the past 10 years," Eckstein said.

"I'll have to rely on my experience going into these last two rounds."

Meanwhile, Moir has clawed back from a disappointing 2013-14 to be in equal seventh spot.

She was a wildcard this season coming back from a knee injury and has been well in the mix during the first four rounds.

Moir finished second in the Coolangatta Gold behind Liz Pluimers last year.

Pluimers is currently 10 points clear in first and will be hard to beat.

"I'm so stoked to be in number one spot," Pluimers said.

"I was nervous heading into the series after the Coolangatta Gold but it has paid off with the conditions really suiting my preparation."
