Congratulations to the Coolum Blue Team who scored Silver at last weekends Coolangatta Gold

Last Sunday saw a record number of Coolum Beach surf club entries into the iconic Coolangatta Gold with the Coolum Blue Team finishing a fantastic second in their teams age category.


Both teams of Masters ( Red- 140 years and Blue- 190 years ) competed against some of the fittest surf sports athletes in the country and were joined by 5 of our keenest juniors to make our clubs mark in this years event. While not the first time our clubs Red Cap has made an appearance in the "Gold", this was without a doubt our most entries and perhaps our best results to date.


Congrats to Mick Nagle, Andy Johnson, Ian Norman and Bryan Campbell who blitzed not only all but one of their competitors but also won the bet against Coolum Red who now owe the boys some liquid refreshments in the form of a carton.  Congrats also to Coolum Red Chris Atkinson, Mick Sell, Bobby Le Roux and Andrew Saw who finished a creditable 5th in their age category which included many great champions causing the finishing times to be faster than the younger category the Blues team were in.



Juniors represent us like Champions

Well done to Junior boys James Sweetman, Ronan Nagle , Locki Rahui, Lachlan Saw, Lachlan Nagle, Alex Oconner who competed in the individual Youth Challenge.

This event was especially designed for aspiring lifesavers and future ocean and beach event competitors who were up for a challenge and keen to be part of the main event experience.
The course consisted of a 300m soft sand run, a 400m swim, 400m run, 500m board and then a 50m run and concluded at the elite finish arch.




We would like to thank our sponsors for their continual support.
