Stop logging core koala habitat at Cherry Tree State Forest

Joel Paxton made it to round two of the Tweed Coast Pro last week.

Nyxie Ryan has rocketed into the top 50 on the QS ratings ladder after finishing in equal ninth pace in the Mothernest Tweed Coast Pro competition at Kingscliff and Cabarita last week.

It was Nyxie’s (Lennox Head) first WSL QS event. She was one of the youngest in the 72-woman event.

She started in round two with a big win against a former world junior champion from New Zealand and the Japanesse runner-up of the previous event at Burleigh.

To prove it wasn’t a fluke Ryan backed up with a second place and the highest-scoring ride in her round-three heat.

Her run came to a halt in round four in a very close heat and she ended up with an equal ninth-place finish up against much older and more experienced competitors.

Byron Bay boys Joel Paxton and Kyuss King as well as Zak Condon, Jack Murray and Mikey McDonagh from Lennox Head competed in the field of 144 men.

Unfortunately Murray was eliminated in round one, Paxton in round two and King in round three.

McDonagh was knocked out in a close round-four heat.

Zak Condon again received the coveted WSL Wildcard and was seeded straight into round four but he placed third and was eliminated.
