Beautiful weather, light winds and unseasonably warm water greeted excited competitors at the NSW Country Surf Life Saving Championships 2014 which kicked off yesterday at Mollymook Beach on the state’s South Coast.

Byron SLSC coach Mitch McMullen says there will be a team of 40 children going to Mollymook who will compete in beach and water events. ‘That will be relays and flags on the beach and in the water there will be board rescue, board relays, swimming and team events.’

Mitch feels confident that the team will do well considering they have been the overall champions for the last two Country Championships. ‘Over the past two years we have won the titles. We have been training since July and the kids are sat their peak and absolutely flying in the water. I think they will do very well.’

Mitch says the kids are excited about the trip south. ‘They enjoy the competition, friendship and working together as a team. They are busting to get out there and race.’
