Congratulations to Cyndari and Kyani Parton, Arwen Van de Vorst, Nicholas White and Ella Steele who will go on to represent Wide Bay at the State Titles on the Sunshine Coast.

The Wide Bay School Surfing Competition was a good beach day – plenty of sun and sand, just not ideal for boardriders.

Novices Charlie and Zac performed well in the difficult conditions, and others showed their experience, having represented the region previously in Agnes Waters.

Held in front of the Rainbow Beach Surf Club last month, the swell was disappointing. “Rolling” is how competitor Hannah Wilson described it – but she smiled, “At least we had a day off school!”
