|Queensland Boardriding Clubs Prepare For 2012 World Surfaris Coast-of-Origin Interclub Series!|
|Written by Surfing Queensland|
After the Sunshine Coast claimed a historic one-point victory over arch rivals the Gold Coast in last year’s inaugural World Surfaris Coast-of-Origin Interclub Series, 2012 will see one of Australian surfing’s oldest rivalries reignited once again.
The seven-event World Surfaris Coast-of-Origin, sees surfers of all disciplines and ages, represent their respective boardriding clubs, their region and ultimately their ‘coast’ – uniting Queensland’s grass-roots surfing community in an amazing interclub competition.
Kicking off in just over one month’s time (June 23-24), boardriding club’s from Duranbah to Noosa are busy preparing their competitors, ahead of preliminary ‘Area Challenges’ on both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
Area Challenges see each coast divided into two divisions, with Club’s on the Sunshine Coast (Caloundra to Maroochydore and Mudjimba to Noosa) and the Gold Coast (Duranbah to Palm Beach and Burleigh to North Stradbroke Island) preparing to do battle.
From there, Sunshine Coast ‘Regional Challenges’ and Gold Coast ‘Regional Challenges’ (July 21-22) will see the best qualifying surfers from the Area Challenges in the North and Area Challenges in the South compete to finalise representative teams ahead of the concluding State Challenge where a champion ‘Coast’ will be crowned for 2012.
