Last Wednesday, blue skies, light winds and small, clean waves greeted 50 students from Pacific, Talara Primary College, Good Shepherd Lutheran College, Buddina State School and Our Lady of the Rosary for the 2017 Pacific Pulse Surf Contest.

The annual contest has been held for more than a decade. Each school entered a mixed team of 10 surfers to compete in individual and team events. Each competitor had the opportunity to surf in two heats and their highest two waves scores determined the overall male and female champion surfers in each age group. Heat results were also used to determine the overall champion school.


There were also lots of prizes and activities on offer when students were not in the water. Thanks must go to the East Coast TAFE students who co-organised the contest and ran many activities on the day. They also scoured the coast for sponsors to donate prizes and items for the competitor packs.

At the end of the day, Buddina State School was named the overall champions and Talara Primary College took out the Tag Team event. From Pacific, Tim Bange and Haylie Powell were crowned the U12 champion surfers and Sam Williams was runner up in the U12 boys division.
