The Kirra Teams Challenge is the world’s largest interclub surfing teams event, and each year over 36 of Australia’s most elite boardriding clubs from all around Australia travel to the golden sands of Kirra to lay claim to the prestigious title and bragging rights of being named ‘Australia’s Best Boardriding Club’.
The event first started in the late ‘60s as an open event called the ‘Kirra Pro Am’ but in 1985 the format was changed to a teams event. Since that time it has lured the best amateur and professional talent in the nation who throw everything into doing their home team proud. Last year local powerhouse team Snapper Boardriders claimed their 9th Kirra Teams Challenge win in the 27 year history of the event. Be sure to hit the beach for all the action to see if anyone can stop their reign!
The Windansea Boardriders team for the Kirra is:
Junior: Josh Menger, Jake Fissenden
Opens: Adam Hadland, David Scard, Sam Poncini, Russell Miller, Nick McDonald, Eli Steele
Reserve: Nick Ferguson
Lucky Fergo! Lost only a fin.
SUNSHINE Coast surfers have been warned to stay away from creek and river mouths after a lunchtime surf turned into a scene from Jaws yesterday.
Nick Ferguson had a run-in with “something big” in murky waters off Wurtulla, which had surfers scurrying to the beach.

– It’s about time!
Running in partnership with the Pa & Ma Bendall surf contest (second longest running surf competition in Australia – second only to Bells Beach), the Caloundra Surf Festival will celebrate the rich surfing culture on the Sunshine Coast.
The Caloundra Surf Festival incorporates a first class surfing competition, surf art, photographic & historical displays. There will be famous surfing identities & demonstrations, plus astonishing surf movies & music – there is something for everyone.
The Caloundra Surf Festival will take place at Moffat Beach each morning of Easter weekend & back at the Caloundra RSL Thursday, Saturday & Sunday night (closed for Good Friday).
A major element of the Caloundra Surf Festival is the surf art competitions – so we are calling all budding artists to enter their best surf art in a variety of categories (please see attached sheet) for a chance to have their art displayed & win some fantastic prizes.
Down on the grass at Moffat Beach on the Saturday morning (as the Pa & Ma Bendall competition is happening in the water) there will be a board swap which is sure to attract plenty of interest. Bring your old or new surfboard/s, including mals, fishes & shortboards, along with any unique designs. Interact with other swappers, hunt down a bargain, or add to your own collection. A great environment to meet fellow surfers, local characters & board collectors, whilst appreciating all the unique forms in which a surfboard can be designed.
More details will be coming very soon, but the wheels are rolling & the momentum is building. As our slogan says “It’s About Time”.
Caloundra Surf Festival, Easter Weekend 2012 – bring it on!
