Although none of the region’s surf life saving clubs achieved a place in last weekend’s NSW Surf Life Saving Championships at Kingscliff, many competitors were well placed. Click ‘read more’ for full north coast results.
Wanda SLSC is the new state Surf Life Saving Champion after narrowly beating Terrigal and Cronulla in the overall pointscore. Defending champion Manly finished in fourth place.
The championships have been held in the Tweed for the last two years and have been a financial boon for the far north coast town of Kingscliff. The championships head south to the central coast for the next two years.
Pictured are Cudgen Headland’s ‘B52’ Open Male Board Rescue team, Jarrad Cain and Scott McCartney.
