2012 Fun In The Sun wrap
Caloundra Malibu Club hosted the 12th annual Fun in the Sun Team Longboarding Challenge on Oct 20-21 at Happy Valley, Caloundra. We enjoyed sensational weather with clear skies and plenty of sun, and the location provided a sheltered pocket from strong northerly winds.
A fantastic turnout of 19 teams participated this year with five of them making the trek all the way from Bargara. Amore Coffee (2011 defending champions) were standout performers all weekend, but the Top Nuts gave them a run for their money this year, staging a hard-fought battle in the final to claim the Division A title.
Amore Coffee finished in second place in Division A, with the Missing Links (Alexandra Headland Malibu Club) third and Pacific Horrific (Pacifique Surfriders, Bagara) fourth.
The Division B title this year was claimed by the Smiling Assassins (Caloundra Malibu Club), closely followed by BJR Qld’s team in second. Congratulations to Pacific Pacifiers (Pacifique Surfriders, Bagara) and the Leftovers (Alexandra Headland Mal Club) who placed third and fourth respectively in the B Division final.
It’s a good thing we ride big boards, with most participants utilising their biggest log over the weekend to get the most out of the small clean sliders that were on offer. The atmosphere was fantastic: great company, good tunes and the smell of the BBQ and fresh coffee in the air. There were so many people involved in making the weekend the success it was — too many to list — great work team and thank you!!!
