Despite a massive opening heat win for Coolum Boardriders by Noah Lane it was not enough to get the club into the top 10 at last weekend’s Rip Curl Kirra Teams Challenge.

Regarded as surfings’ most prestigious and sought-after national club teams’ trophy, the challenge pitted 36 of Australia’s top boardriding clubs against each other over three days last week.

The final result saw five clubs separated by just one point with North End victorious on 29 out of a possible 32 points.

Tied on 28 points were Le-Ba (short for Lennox/Ballina), Kirra, Noosa and Snapper Rocks with three of those four clubs on five wins, two seconds and a third .

The clubs were placed second to fifth, based on their surfers’ cumulative points tally, leaving Noosa in fourth place.

The only other Sunshine Coast club in the top 10 was North Shore (Maroochydore) in eighth place.
