SURFING: Sunshine Coast board riders largely dominated proceedings in the major events at the Agnes Water Surf Festival.

Peregian Springs' Jarrod Sunderland led the charge by claiming victory in the marquee open men's short-board final.

In an all-Sunshine Coast decider, the experienced surfer staved off his younger opponents, brothers Connor and Toby Lyons along with Kalani Wulf.

"These kids are really fast and well suited to the conditions but I got lucky," he told Surfing Queensland.

"It can be a hard wave to surf at times (at Agnes Water) but I'm really happy to be surfing somewhere different."

A trio of Sunshine Coasters also competed in the four-contender open women's short-board final.

Teenager Amber Dodds claimed the crown ahead of Siena Hanna and Elia Smith and Tannum Sands' Mikayla El-Khouri in 1.5m surf.

"It can be really competitive out there, but we're all good friends," she said.

"I've been here since Thursday getting familiar with the conditions which helps," said Dods.

Coasters also had plenty of success in junior divisions with the likes of Kodi Delit amid the winners.
