COOLANGATTA/QLD (15th September 2012): Snapper Rocks Surfriders is flying high after taking down Australia’s best junior surfers to win the inaugural Surfcoach.com Junior Kirra Teams Challenge 2012 at Duranbah, NSW today.

In clean 3-4ft waves, Snapper‘s all-star team of Mitch Parkinson, Kyuss King, Leonard Rawlings, Quinn Bruce, Sheldon Simkus and Josh Glennon were too good for their rivals, besting Noosa, Nth Narrabeen and Kirra.

Snapper finishing with three heat wins and three seconds to amass a 21-point winning total. Noosa, Narrabeen and Kirra finishing second to fourth place respectively after a count back was needed to split their 20-point totals.

“We're so stoked with the win,” said Snapper Rocks Surfriders surfer Mitch Parkinson.

“The surf has been very flat for the past month so it was great to get some really contestable surf for the event. Thanks to Kirra Surfriders for putting on the event and to all of the other clubs from all over Australia."

The Snapper club have won a two-day coaching camp at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre at Casuarina as well as $600.

Also competing in the prestigious one-day event was a girls’ team made up of some of the Gold Coast’s best junior female surfers. Their team consisted of Jacinta Green, Alyssa Lock, Kiania Dobben, Naomi McCarthy, Ashlee Spence and Holly Sue Coffey.

Hosted by Kirra Surfriders Club, the Surfcoach.com Junior Kirra Teams Challenge 2012 is regarded as the world’s largest junior inter-club surfing teams event
