Congratulations to our Queensie Board Riding Team at the 2022 NSW Championships!
1st Place in the overall Pointscore.
Congratulations to our Queensie surfing team who collected a total of 8 medals at the state SLSC board-riding titles last weekend.
Masters: Our master competitors were on fire with Jamie Grant collecting 3 medals; sliver in the 30-49 male Malibu long board, sliver in open Malibu long board, followed by a bronze in the 30-49 male short board. To top that Leishea Grant won GOLD in both the 30-49 female Malibu long board and 30-49 female short board (just for showing up to surf—well done Leish!).
OPENS: At her first competition EVER for Queensie – Neve Grant won GOLD In a competitive filed for the open female Malibu longboard. She fought big waves and an injury to come through with the win- such an courageous effort. Backing up her Aussie silver, Zoe Prelc came home with a sliver in the open female short board and a bronze in the U17/19 female short board.
YOUTH; To Sam Prelc, our most talented surfer, we applaud you for your Queensie spirit. Sam’s waves were missed in the judging (judges not paying attention) hence not allowing him to progress. This was unfortunate as he had the highest scoring wave in the heat, beating those that did progress to the final. Instead of protesting, Sam went up to judge the next heats on behalf of Queenscliff, so that other competitors did not suffer the same fate. We applaud you Sam for your Queensie spirit and wish you the best of luck for next time.
