COOLUM, Peregian and Marcoola will be well represented in the Jupiters Summer Surf Girl comp tomorrow on the Gold Coast.
Beach beauties from Surf Lifesaving clubs from Dicky Beach up to Peregian Beach have been on the Gold Coast this week for the final days of the competition.
The winner will be announced tomorrow.
The Jupiters Summer Surf Girl program is one of Surf Life Saving Queensland's largest and most enduring club-based fundraising programs.
More than $11.5 million has been raised in its 48-year history.
On the eve of the final day of the program, the three entrants from Coolum, Peregian and Marcoola spoke on their personal reasons for getting involved.
Shannyn Lovell, representing Peregian Beach, said she had a massive debt to repay her surf club.
"I moved here from Victoria and didn't know a soul so being a part of surf has been a major part of my life," she said.
"We are a relatively small club and after seeing what past entrants have done for the club through the Jupiters Summer Surf Girl program, I thought it was the least I could do for a club that has given me so much."
Kate Norman, representing Coolum Beach, said the surf club has always been an important part of her life.
"I spent almost every summer weekend growing up there," she said.
"I am honoured to be able to represent the club in this way and also to raise much needed funds.
"I would love to get more involved in the surf sports side of the club and help foster an environment that encourages and supports new competitors for the club."
Marcoola SLSC's Alicia Tickner said she wanted to be a role model for the younger girls in the club.
"I want to hopefully make them feel like they can do anything they set their minds to," she said.
"I also wanted to encourage a greater sense of community and promote surf safety."
SLSQ Chief Operations Officer and judge George Hill applauded the efforts of entrants and their contribution to the lifesaving movement.
"The dedication and commitment that these girls have shown throughout the past 12 months should be commended," Mr Hill said.
"The effort they have put in to benefit Surf Life Saving in Queensland is outstanding."
