SURF BOATS: Sunshine Coast crews are ready to ramp things up in Saturday's final round of the Queensland Cup at Coolum Beach.

Several local teams are in contention for overall honours after the opening two rounds.

An Alexandra Headland crew is joint leader in the marquee open men's division and sweep Steve Davies recently told event media he expected some great action.

"It looks like it's going to be a great day to hone surf skills...so we are looking for a fun, competitive weekend.”

Two Gold Coast units, Tugun A and the Currumbin Huscals, are also in prime position.

Meanwhile, Maroochydore Amazons has a share the series lead in the open women's division, with Northcliffe Krankits.

Both crews are expected to be tested by Tallebudgera Kaylews, which can win the series despite missing the last round due to being on Australian representative duties in the Trans-Tasman Cup.

Noosa Heads has the advantage in the reserve men's division, with a slender one-point margin over Bundaberg while Alexandra Headland's QFFS has a lead in the women's reserve grade section, over the Mermaid Beach Ring Ins.

Alexandra Headlands leads the under-19 men's series and is joint leader of the under-23 men's division, with Currumbin Mangos.

The Dicky Beach Toosies, which recently claimed a stirring win at the ASRL Open, is leading the under-19 women's division while Maroochydore Force holds the edge in the under-23 women's section.

Racing is due to start at 8am.
