Inaugural Super Surf Teams League Trophy is Ripe for the Taking
With only a couple of points separating first and sixth place, six teams are in contention to take out the inaugural Super Surf Teams League trophy this Sunday at North Cronulla.
Across three rounds of surf sports, 13 teams from across Australia have battled it out for the top spot in the inaugural Super Surf Teams League.
NSW Northern Beaches Rays sit on top of the ladder with 23 points just two points ahead of the QLD Canecutters, Scarborough Sunsets and Sunshine Coast Marlins who are all on 21 points.
The South Coast Makos sit just one point behind on 20 points and the Sydney City Sharks are in sixth position on 19 points.
The first round of the Super Surf Teams league was taken out by the Canecutters, followed by the Scarborough Sunsets and Northern Beaches Rays.
While the South Coast Makos claimed first in the second round followed by the Northern Beaches Rays and the Sunshine Coast Marlins.
With the competition this close, each race will be crucial to securing precious points towards the team’s cumulative total.
Across the two rounds of competition there have been some consistent performers who have stood out above the rest.
Aussies and World Champion Bree Masters took out the beach sprint in round one and two, as well as the beach flags in round one for the South Coast Makos.
NSW Sydney City Sharks Chris King has dominated in the male board race having taken out two from two rounds.
Meanwhile, the QLD Canecutters have dominated in the male and female Ski race with both Jett Kenny and Lucinda Kelly taking out round one and two.
The Scarborough Sunsets mixed team of Dan Humble and Jaime Roberts have taken out the Ski Relay but with Roberts out for this weekend, the Canecutters team of Kenny and Kelly could be in the running to snatch that race too.
The final round of the Super Surf Teams League will be held at North Cronulla from 9:30am to 12pm and will be broadcast on FOX Sports on Sunday 2 February from 2- 4pm AEDT.
