The Queensland State Junior Titles wrapped up on the Gold Coast today with strong winds playing joker in an otherwise stacked deck.

1-1.5m shifting waves were on offer for the final day of the series at Duranbah Beach and with crucial ratings points on offer throughout the finals, Queensland's best juniors made the best of 45km winds as they vied for a place in the Queensland State team that will compete at the Australian Junior Titles at Kiama, NSW later this year.

16-year-old Kai Hing (Wurtulla, QLD - 14.73) continued his blistering form throughout the event to take a last minute victory over event one winner Luke Hynd (Burleigh Heads, QLD - 14.10), Nic Callister (Burleigh Heads, QLD - 12.20) and Jack Reginato (Alexandra Headland, QLD - 11.34) in the blue ribbon Under 18 boys division.

Both Hing and Hynd's event one and event two wave scores will be counted back tomorrow in order to crown a series champion and Quiksilver Pro Trials wildcard winner.

No count back will be necessary for the Under 18 girls division however, with Coolum's Isabella Nichols taking her second event victory today with 10.83 points over Ellie Brooks (Elanora, QLD - 9.93), Holly-Daze Coffey (Coolangatta, QLD - 7.90) and Jade Wheatley (Currumbin, QLD - 7.17).

With the victory, 16-year-old Nichols becomes the Under 18 girls Queensland State Junior Champion and also will receive a wildcard into the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Roxy Pro Trials, where she will have the opportunity to surf against the best in the business and potentially win her way into the main event.

In the Under 14 boys division Jagger Bartholomew (Snapper Rocks, QLD) channelled the winning form of his father [1978 World Champion, Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew] scoring a narrow victory with 13.57 points over Hinata Aizawa (Palm Beach, QLD - 12.57), Allister Reginato (Alexandra Headland, QLD - 7.56) and Kai Dobbyn (Palm Beach, QLD - 5.57).

A full list of individual event and series results will be made available on Surfing Queensland's website tomorrow outlining State Champions and qualifiers into the Queensland State team that will compete at the Australian Junior Titles.
