North Burleigh dominate first day of 2021 Youth State Championships

Friday, 12 March 2021

1,600 youth athletes ranging from Under 11’s to Under 15’s hit the surf and sand to battle it out for state glory.

SLSQ Surf Sports Manager Stuart Hogben said it was great to see the nipper’s skills in action across the first day.

“We had favourable surf conditions for racing throughout the morning, which saw plenty of close finishes in the finals,” he said.

“While Gold and Sunshine Coast clubs have dominated the placings in most events, it was great to see Gladstone’s Tannum Sands on the podium for the Under 15 and Under 14 Male Surf Team.

“So far North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club have shown their dominance in the water, with multiple podium finishes.”

North Burleigh Male and Female Under 12’s were unstoppable throughout the day, taking first place in the Surf Teams, Cameron Relay and Board Relay.

Burleigh Heads Mowbray Park Female Under 11’s proved too strong in the water for their competitors, claiming gold in the Surf Teams, Cameron Relay and Board Relay.

The surf sport action continues across the weekend at North Kirra, with another two big days of racing ahead.

Day 2 highlights are set to include the Under 12, Under 14 and Under 15 Board Rescue Finals.
