The adrenalin-seeking Thundercat crews return to Marcoola Beach on April 18-19 to kick off their three-round state Surf Cross Series! Head down to Marcoola Beach Surf Club for a bird's eye view of all the exhilarating action as Queensland's top Thundercat crews battle it out in the surf for leaderboard bragging rights. Will the Durston brothers hold onto their 2014 state champs crown or will one of the sport's rising stars put an end to their two-year winning streak?

The State Championships were held at Surfair Marcoola in November last year, and this year's title race will be won over three rounds – starting with a two-day race at Marcoola Beach and returning to the Sunshine Coast in November for the Championship round. Round one of the 2015 Queensland Thundercat Surf Cross Series promises a full weekend of high-octane, high-flying surf cross action, conveniently located at beautiful Marcoola Beach – right in front of the Surf Club! 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 opening round of the 2015 Queensland Thundercat Surf Cross Series will be decided across two days on April 18-19, with racing on Marcoola Beach from 9am – 2pm each day.
