The high-flying Thundercats and their adrenalin-seeking crews return to the Sunshine Coast on November 21-22 for the final round of their 2015 State Surf Cross Series! Head down to Alexandra Headland beach to catch all of the exhilarating action as Queensland's top Thundercat crews take on the surf and battle each other for the state championship title.
Will Nick Routledge and Tony Aitkenhead hold on to their current lead to take home the 2015 state champs crown or will Gold Coast brothers Jay and Nathan Durston get the hat trick this year? Round one of the 2015 Thundercats Surf Cross Series was held at Marcoola in April and this month's final round sees crews returning to the coast for the first time since the drama-filled 'King Of Coolum' Trans-Tasman Race, held at Coolum in July. The sport of Thundercat Racing has been likened to 'extreme IRB racing' and features 4.1m long inflatable Catamaran-style powered boats, specifically designed for high-speed action in the surf.
Guided by their thrill-seeking Thundercat Pilots and Co-pilots, these boats can reach speeds of up to 90 km per hour and jump up to 6 metres in the air – making it an exciting, family-friendly spectator sport, with events attracting thousands of followers across the world each year. The 2015 Queensland Thundercats Surf Cross Series Championship final will be held over two action-packed days at Alexandra Headland beach – just north of the Surf Club. Racing gets underway at 9am on both Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November.
Come and join us for a full weekend of high-octane, high-flying surf cross action!
This event is presented by Brisbane Coast Thundercats and supported by Neptune Marine and Alexandra Headland Surf Lifesaving Club.
