Congratulations to Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club, which won the annual Surf Life Saving Country Championships for the third year running.

Held at Mollymook Beach last weekend, over 1,200 athletes from 36 different surf clubs comepted.

Friday’s perfect weather kicked off the competition, which is open exclusively to surf life saving clubs outside the metropolitan areas. Cudgen Headland SLSC took an early lead in the overall club point score ahead of Byron Bay SLSC, but in the water and on the sand it was all about the future of surf sports with junior athletes from U8s to U14s battling it out for points.

Byron Bay stalwart Joel Martin won both the Open and 17s flags events, and on day two with more exceptional weather, Byron took the lead in the overall scores.

Athletes from Byron who won events on day two include Joel Martin, Tex Hembrow, Seth Carter, Meeka Campbell, Beau Carter, Emilio Jimenez-Swain, Jy Timperley, Zoe Heiniger and Helen Murray.
