2019 Aussie Champs @ Gold Coast - Open & Masters 

Well that's a wrap 2019 Aussie Champs done & dusted.

It has been challenging for all concerned at the Youth Masters & Open events.

Surf & weather conditions changing over the 8 days of competition, moving between Broadbeach & North Kirra...wow it had everything. Youth Champions at Nort Burleigh.

But that's what surf carnivals are about, having fun, racing in individual & team events, character building & defining moments, building resistance, working as a club to achieve.

To all our athletes be very proud of what you achieved, you are all champions, whether you medal, make a quarter or semi or miss out in a heat. You all represented our club so proudly at these championships👌

To all our members thankyou for what you did at these championships, working as officials, towing boat & craft trailers, set up tents, team managers & power craft shifts, parents supporting our athletes...we are a very proud club & will continue to be👏

Some stand out performances included; 

* Zara Sharman - 1st U17 Female 2km Ocean Swim

* Reserve Women's Boat Crew (Shane Geloven Karla Erven Tanzin Lancaster Vida Oakes & Ash Rae) semi finalist 

* Jasmine Locke unlucky 4th U17 Female Ski😢

WOW...this deserves a special mention.

Heart break for Jasmine Locke in the final of the U17 Australian Female Ski today at North Kirra...Jaz clearly the best & strongest paddler led by at least 15m coming into the little deep gully towards the finish line, just slewed a bit on a small wave & came off her ski, she jumped back on & placed a close 4th...everybody on the beach (well us bulli people) felt for her...NSW Champ & looking to be AUS champ.

But you know what she is a champion in our eyes, the way she held her composure after the race, dealt with defeat, she is a credit to her parents Mick & Penny...a lovely young lady in every way.

Jaz your time will come & you will be better for the experience.

AUSSIE FINALISTS;

- Beau Wheeler Open Men's Board a great 5th placing! 
-Zara Sharman U17 Iron Woman 8th in final 
-Zara Sharman U17 Female Surf 4th in final

- Beau Wheeler semi's of Open Iron Man & Open Surf 

Enjoy the social activities with other clubbies & safe travels.

Bring on 2020👍
