SURF BOATS: Alexandra Headland crews will head to the state surf lifesaving championship in buoyant fashion after the club was crowned overall champion in the Queensland Cup series.

It's reserve grade women, under-23 men and under-19 men won their divisions of the three-leg series, which finished with an action-packed round at Coolum Beach on Saturday.

It's open men's and masters crews also finished within the top three overall.

"It shows there is bit of depth in the club,” sweep Steve Davies said.

"It's a great result and we're really happy.”

He said many surf boats teams from around the region were were in ominous form, ahead of the Queensland Surf Life Saving Championships and The Aussies, both at North Kirra next month.

"The crews on the Sunshine Coast seem to be moving really well,” he said.

"The Dicky Beach under-19 girls are going well as are their reserve grade women so they should both be quite prominent at the state titles.

"Maroochydore has been outstanding in the under-23 women and open women so the Sunshine Coast is looking pretty good.”

Indeed, Dicky Beach's under-19 girls are in form.

They won at the Australian Surf Rowers League Open in Shellharbour a week ago and on Saturday won their division title at the Queensland Cup on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Maroochydore won the under-23 series title while Mooloolaba won the masters 200-years title.

"(But) everybody will start to rest up now because there has been two big weeks,” Davies said.

He believed the Alexandra Headland crews fared well in the Queensland Cup largely because they attended all events.

"Some crews don't like going to Coolum because they know there's going to be a wave. They might not come because of that or because it is close to the state title and they don't want to break gear or they are recovering from (other) events.”

"But at the end of the day we're just so glad the officials run the (Cup) events and we get to catch waves and improve our surf skills. We have a great time.”

Tugun and Tallebudgera won the Queensland Cup series open men's and open women's titles on Saturday.
