Suffolk Park surfer Jye Whyatt has won dual national titles at the Australian Longboard Titles as part of the Australian Surf Festival.
Whyatt executed an exciting array of impressive manoeuvres to dominate the field in both the Junior Longboard and Junior Logger divisions following an action-packed day of surfing in clean 0.7-metre peaks at Cabarita Beach.
Whyatt has been in excellent form over the 2017 season and the dual wins confirm his status as the best junior longboarder in Australia.
The 2017 Australian Surf Festival also featured a podium finish for Neil Cameron (Byron Bay) who came fourth in the Over-60s shortboard division of the Surfmasters Titles.
Max Perrot (Lennox Head) was a quarterfinalist in the Over-50 shortboard division.
Lennox Head duo Stu Kennedy and Adam Melling have both posted a great result at the Vans US Open of Surfing QS 10000 at Huntington Beach Pier.
The pair finished in equal ninth position gaining 3,700 series points and $4,300 in prizemoney. Both surfers have been languishing down in the ratings ladder with Melling in 64th spot and Kennedy in 203rd spot, and this result will catapult them much higher up the ladder and lay down the foundations for a qualification berth in 2018.
The Team MP 20th Lennox Longboard Classic 2017 is on this weekend at Lennox Head main beach.
This annual longboarding event attracts more than 100 longboarders competing in nine divisions from Juniors U-18, through age divisions up to Over-65, Ladies division and Old Malibu Loggers divisions.
Local Lennox Head longboarder Scott Channon will be hoping to back up his Byron Malibu Classic win in the Open nine-footers and Chris Cain (Lennox Head) will be a favourite in the loggers event.
