Teenage ripper Lucy Callister found herself in the daunting position of coming up against former WSL Championship Tour (CT) competitor Pauline Ado. Callister waited patiently until taking two right-handers in a row that both offered a clean open wall for the young Queenslander to go to town on, posting a modest Heat total of 13.25 (out of a possible 20) to win the heat. “It was a slow start for everyone in that heat, you really had to get lucky,” Callister said. “I was pretty nervous about coming up against Pauline Ado, she rips so hard, anything could have happened. I’m really happy I was in the spot for a couple of good waves.”

Burleigh Heads – Gold Coast – Australia

It is something now of legend. The second weekend of January, everybody gets ready for the weekend of the year. The natural amphitheatre that is Burleigh Heads is lined with thousands of people checking surfing, not pro-surfing but awesome 1970’s-style surfing on surfboards more than 35 years old, and just how used to be with one single fin.

The 19th Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Festival will be held on the 8/9/10th January 2016, first surfing event of the 2016 year. Surfers will be competing on antique single fin boards which must have been made no later than 1981, some of the boards surfed are of vintage on late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Over the years surfers have travelled for Westren Australia, Victoria, NSW, all the way up the East Coast of Australia to the Sunshine Coast to compete in this iconic event.

The Festival commences on the Friday with the Annual Charity Luncheon. Nathan “Carnage” Corbett international renown Mutai boxer is the first guest speaker confirmed. Alan “Robo” Robinson TV personality will be the MC, and other guest speakers to be announced soon. Most of the local pro surfers attend, enjoying the low key fun of the luncheon in their break from the world tour. There will be an amazing sports memorabilia auction, comedy, and great food and drink for all that attend.

Saturday and Sunday will see the Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Classic take place at the iconic Burleigh Heads Point break where some of the best surfers take on Burleigh on the old boards. Surfers who have competed in the event include Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Jack Freestone, Bede Durbidge, Dave Rastovich, Wayne Rabbit Bartholomew, Gary Elkerton, musician Ash Grunwald, Jockey Damien Oliver, footballer Andrew Johns, celebrity Chef Peter Evans, and a host of others. There is a field hot of locals to contend with, last year Burleigh Boardrider Thomas Woods took victory for the second time, the top 100 ranked surfer will be back this year to defend his title. There will be 96 competitors, there are no cash prizes, just the glory of being the champion, and a classic Dick Van Straalen single fin made especially for the event winner.

There is also an under 18 division, where the young grommets will be surfing boards that are more than twice or in some cases 3 times their age!

Maddy Job was on fire all weekend, winning every heat he went in including the final. With that result Maddy placed 3rd in Queensland in the under 16 division, and with Hinata Aizawa placing 4th on Sunday wrapped up 4th place in Queensland, and a spot with Maddy in The Queensland Team to go to the Australian Junior Titles in November this year.

Our sunshine smiling super-girl. Lucy Callister placed 3rd in the second round of the Queensland Titles Under 18 girls, this going with her 2nd place in the first round, Lucy ended up 2nd in Queensland, and just missing out on the wildcard to the Roxy Pro Trials. Lucy will also be off to the Australia Junior titles in November and will be primed, as the boys will be to bring home an Australian Junior Title to Burleigh.
The last one to do that was Jay “Bottle” Thompson, so come on groms it’s your turn!!!
Honourable mentions to Toby Mossop and Liam O’Brien who made the semi-finals and were close to making the Queensland team for the under 18 boys. Great effort from all the groms who competed!!

Gold Coast, Queensland Saturday 12th September, 2015 – Duranbah Beach played host to the second event of the Queensland Junior Titles Series with clean one metre waves on offer for competitors in day one of competition.

Top seed Quinn Bruce (Coolangatta, Qld) made light work of his opening round heat against Sam Littlechild (Mermaid Beach, Qld) and Liam Kelly (Wooloowin, Qld), defeating both respectively after scoring the highest heat total in day one of competition. Both Quinn and Sam will progress straight through to the Under 18 Boys semi-final scheduled to run tomorrow afternoon where they will shape up to the likes of Toby Mossop (Burleigh Heads, QLD), Aaron Kelly (Sunshine Beach, QLD) and Ethan Ewing (Point Lookout, QLD) to name a few.

Closely followed by the Under 18 boys was round one of the Under 16 boys with Dextar Muskins (Tweed Heads, NSW) up against Kalani Wulf (Pacific Paradise, Qld) and Cooper Davies (Noosa Heads, Qld) in the opening round heat. In the end, Dextar took a clear lead over his fellow counterparts who needed next to a perfect score to take back the lead.

In the Under 16’s boys, Maddy Job (Burleigh Heads, Qld) posted one of the highest heat totals displaying a high level of dynamic and consistent surfing from start to finish of his heat. Kila Hatchett (Currumbin Waters, Qld) and Darcy Littlechild (Broadbeach Waters, Qld) took second and third place respectively with Kila joining Maddy where they will move through to tomorrow’s Under 16 Boys quarter-final.

Heat two of the Under 18 girls division saw an upset in the water as Holly-Sue Coffey (Coolangatta, Qld) scored an 8.5 score (out of a possible 10) for her first wave of the heat to narrowly defeat event one runner-up Lucy Callister (Palm Beach, Qld), relegating fellow counterparts Laura Poncini (Moffat Beach, QLD) and Ebony Wilson (Elanora, QLD) into third and fourth respectively.

The coveted competition will also see the under 18 division junior surfers compete for a wildcard into the World Surf League (WSL) 2016 Quiksilver and Roxy Pro’s trials. Queensland’s top Under 18 Male and Female State Champions will each receive a wildcard to surf in the trials event, moving one step further to compete against the world’s best professional surfers at the 2016 Quiksilver and Roxy Pro at Snapper Rocks.

As added value to the Queensland Junior Titles, Jolyn Australia will be giving away some epic prizes to some very lucky female junior surfers.
