‘Qld Champs01,02,03’ – Current Queensland Championship title holders, Gold Coast brothers Jay (Pilot) and Nathan (co-pilot) Durstan in action at Coolum.

Coming to Marcoola Beach for 2-days of full-throttle surf action in November 2014! Head down to Surfair Beach Hotel, Marcoola Beach on November 15-16 to see Queensland's top Thundercat crews battle it out in the surf for this year's state title! Can the popular Durston brothers successfully defend their title against last year's runners up, Shane Hopson and Joey Lijewski - or will reining 'King of Coolum' title winners Nick Routledge and Tony Aitkenhead continue their push for Sunshine Coast supremacy?

Last held on the Sunshine Coast in 2012, the Queensland Thundercats Championships promises a full weekend of high-octane, high-flying surf cross action, conveniently located at beautiful Marcoola Beach – right behind the Surfair Beach Hotel and Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre Marcoola Beach. The sport of Thundercat Racing has been likened to 'extreme IRB racing' and features 4.1m long inflatable Catamaran-style boats, specifically designed for 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.

Presented by Brisbane Coast Thundercats and proudly sponsored by Surfair Beach Hotel, Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre Marcoola Beach and Neptune Marine, the Queensland Thundercat Champions for 2014 will be decided across two days on November 15-16, with racing on Marcoola Beach from 9am – 2pm each day.
