Inverted QLD Bodyboarding Titles presented by Pride returns to the Sunshine Coast this weekend

The 2018 Inverted Queensland Bodyboarding Titles presented by Pride Bodyboards is set to return to the Sunshine Coast this weekend for event one of the two event series.

Early indications show a solid easterly ground swell building throughout this week and easing into the weekend, forecast to provide conditions in the 3-4ft (1.5-2m) range for competitors.  

Inverted Bodyboarding Director Ben Wells praised the return of the two event series in 2018 and is optimistic about the forecast, “It’s great to see the series again having two stops this year and we’re stoked to be working with Surfing Queensland again in 2018,” said Wells. “There’s a huge bodyboarding community on the Sunshine Coast with a lot of talent. The forecast is looking promising for the weekend so we’re really looking forward to seeing some of Queensland’s best battle it out in some solid conditions.”

The Queensland Bodyboard Titles are the state’s premier bodyboarding event and provide the exclusive pathway for athletes vying for a spot in the 2018 Queensland Bodyboarding team set to compete at the National Bodyboarding Titles as part of the Australia Surf Festival later this year.

This weekend’s event will see athletes compete across a total of eight individual divisions ranging from Grommet Under 14’s through to the blue ribbon Open Men. Overall State Champions will be crowned at the completion of event two on the Gold Coast, with competitors best two of two results accumulating.

This is a mobile event with the location being dependent on the conditions on the day of the event. The Sunshine Coast event permit covers from Noosa Heads down to Kings Beach.
