Inverted QLD Bodyboarding Titles presented by Pride to hit Sunshine Coast tomorrow
After a huge week of waves along Queensland’s coastline this week, event one of the 2018 Inverted QLD Bodyboarding Titles presented by Pride will get underway tomorrow on the Sunshine Coast.
Event officials are anticipating an easing easterly swell to provide waves in the 2-3ft range for tomorrow’s round of competition, as the state’s best bodyboarders kick off the two event series for 2018.
Amongst those lining up for a shot at series ratings points towards a coveted state title is reigning Under 18 Boy’s Champion and 2017 Open Men’s runner up Alex Boggis (Peregian Springs, QLD). The Sunshine Coast local had multiple podium finishes in the 2017 series and returns with another year of experience under his belt as he faces a young breed of Queensland’s best including Jye Love (Buddina, QLD) and Bradley Harrington (Kingscliff, NSW).
In the Open Women’s division, 2017 Australian Champion Britt Ladley (Mermaid Waters, QLD) will be looking to get her 2018 campaign off to a flying start as she makes the trip north for event one. Ladley will go head to head with fellow Gold Coast based bodyboarder Melanie Kelly (Broadbeach Waters, QLD) this weekend.
Other notable names set to throw on a competition rash shirt tomorrow include 2017 Under 16 Boy’s runner up Blair McDuff (Moffat Beach, QLD) and current Over 45 Men’s Queensland Champion Justin Becker (Mudgeeraba, QLD).
This weekend’s event is the first stop of the two event series, with overall state champions set to be crowned at event two on the Gold Coast in April. The Inverted Queensland Bodyboard Titles presented by Pride is the exclusive pathway for those vying to represent Queensland at the 2018 National Bodyboarding Titles as part of the Australian Surf Festival set to run in July on the Tweed Coast.
This is a mobile event with the location being dependent on the conditions on the day of the event. The Sunshine Coast event permit covers from Noosa Heads down to Kings Beach.
