MEDIA RELEASE

Gold Coast, Queensland Sunday 21st February, 2016 – The two day HIF Masters & Women’s, presented by World Surfaris culminated today in the finals to crown eight event one individual champions who are now one step closer to the prestigious title of Queensland Champion.

HIF is an all-about-choice health fund, providing better, more affordable, health cover options.

Sunshine Coast local Dave Reardon-Smith (Bli Bli, Qld) put on a dominate display of powerful surfing in the Over 35 Men’s division where secured a near perfect 9.77 point (out of a possible 10 points) ride forcing the remainder of the field to search a combination of scores to win. A late charge from Jye Gofton (Coolum Beach, Qld) was not enough to stop Reardon-Smith claiming the winner’s trophy and event one bragging rights.

Jye Gofton (Coolum, Qld) backed up his second place result with a win in the Over 40 Men’s division. Gofton’s experience in beach break surfing was demonstrated throughout the final where he relegated Mark Richardson (Palm Beach, Qld), Ben Silk (Dicky Beach, Qld) and Kyle Robinson (Robina, Qld) into the minor placings respectively.

Kirra Green: Yaroomba Champ

YBAH 2015 Coolum News Cover

From the PREZ:

What a massive weekend we had at the Yaroomba Classic 2015. With terrible 20 knot SE windy conditions on Saturday we managed to get through all our first round heats.
Sunday was the complete opposite and turned on some of the best waves and conditions we have had in the events’ 28 year history. The spirit on the beach was fantastic and it was amazing to see all the old crew that were part of the original Rod Marshall memorial comp in 1987 still tearing it up in the waves. I would personally like to thank all the hard working committee and the volunteers on the BBQ that put together one of the best events we have had. Cheers Barra
