Coming off the back of a fantastic weekend of Club surfing at the World Surfaris ‘Coast of Origin’ Series 2013, I can honestly say that I witnessed some of the best surfing I have seen in a long time across all age divisions, gender and boardriding disciplines. Moreover, I was so stoked to see such a high level of commitment from our Sunshine Coast surfers, not only to travel to the Gold Coast to attend the event, but to put in their absolute best efforts in the water when it really counted.
Despite losing to the Gold Coast this year, everyone who had some form of input into this event whether it be the Club Committee member getting team’s organised, Club competitor surfing for their Club and their coast, the mums and/or dads who supported their sons or daughters, you should all be extremely proud of your efforts and the overall result. As far as I’m concerned, it was also a win for the Sunny Coast!
On behalf of the whole team at Surfing Queensland, I would like to take this opportunity to particularly thank those committee members who worked so tirelessly behind the scenes, often without acknowledgement, for managing to rally their teams again this year. You guys deserve a medal!
If you have any feedback regarding this year’s series, please feel free to forward. This information is really important to Surfing Queensland and helps us to make on-going improvements to the event each year.
For those Clubs who managed to take home some prize money, I will be forwarding an email shortly outlining your winnings and steps required to collect this cash.
Once again, thank you for embracing the World Surfaris ‘Coast of Origin’ Interclub Series. We look forward to doing it all again in 2014!
