Putting your ‘Queen’ money where your mouth is

I've never felt much either way about the Queen. I've never held her in as much disdain as I've held some of our prime ministers, and never held her in as much esteem as I have held, for example, Uncle Archie Roach.

The Irukandjis sting in USA

Australia's national surfing team the Irukandjis have won a silver medal overall at the International Surfing Association World Surfing Games which just wrapped up at Huntington Beach, California.

Kyuss King finished in the top 2.

Byron Bay surfers Kyuss King and Joel Paxton, along with Lennox Head’s Zak Condon, competed at the Vissla Great Lakes Pro, a QS1,000 rated World Surf League event held at Boomerang Beach with clean one-metre waves on offer.

King is steadily climbing the ratings ladder and was seeded into the round of 64 where he put on an impressive performance that included an excellent range score from the judges to move into the round of 32.

He again put on a solid performance but was pushed into third place by less than half a point to walk away with an equal 17th finish overall.

King has now leaped into 11th place on the Australia/Oceania WSL QS ratings.

Condon again received the WSL wildcard and was seeded into the round of 96 but unfortunately was eliminated in another close third-place finish.

Paxton progressed through his round of 96 heat but came up short in the next.
