WATCH: Recap (And Results) From The New South Wales State Titles

 

 
Nice little recap of the BOP race at last weekend’s Ocean and Earth Southern Cross SUP Festival, aka the New South Wales State Titles. This event was the first qualifier on the pathway to the 2015 Aussie Titles, which ultimately decides who’ll represent Team Australia at next year’s Worlds.

Yeah, the 2015 ISA World Championship are still a few weeks away, but Australia is already on the road to 2016.

In a good sign for Team Australia’ hopes at next month’s big one, Toby Cracknell took line honours. The youngster will be representing the Green & Gold in Sayulita next month, and Toby will need to be in absolute top form as he goes up against all-star teams from the USA, Hawaii, France, Tahiti, Mexico and beyond.

Another standout was Terrene Black, who will also be flying the flag in Mexico. Terrene, the 2013 Molokai champ, took out the course race/distance race double last weekend, before hopping on a plane to Carolina.
