19th July 2015 – Elite Surfing State Champions have been crowned at the first leg of the 2015 Queensland Immerse SUP & Paddle Festival on the Gold Coast, Australia. The Open Women’s division gave the over 40 men’s a run for their money scoring equally as high heat totals in their respective finals, a great showcase of women’s progression of the sport.
Wold SUP tour competitor Shakira Westdrop (Tugun, QLD) made an early lead in the 20 minute final to later reinforce her lead with a 7.10 (out of a possible 10) defeating Keale Dorris (Elanora, QLD), Leah Gustafson (Burleigh Heads, QLD), Kaylan Dahl (Burleigh Heads, QLD) and Chloe Walkerdene (Benowa, QLD) respectively.
The Elite SUP Surfing team that will represent Queensland at the forthcoming Australian SUP Titles was today made official after the first component to the 2015 Immerse SUP & Paddle Festival finished today at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast.
