The team from Le-Ba Boardriders have beaten Australia’s best junior surfers to win the 2015 Vissla Junior Kirra Teams Challenge at Duranbah Beach, yesterday.

In clean 3-4ft waves at D’bah’s off the wall bank, Le-Ba‘s all-star team of Zac Whitemen, Jack Murray, Mikey McDonagh, Hunter Weston, Jake SnellGrove, Luke Condon, Eli Carr & Jack O’brien were too good for their rivals, besting Snapper, Burleigh, Merewether and Kirra who finished 2nd to 5th respectively.

Le-Ba finished with six heat wins, one second and one third to amass a 29-point winning total.

The Le-Ba club won $2000 prizemoney from the Kirra Surfriders Club for their efforts.

The Kirra orange team of Max Tobin, Blaine Robinson, Seth Johnson, Gabe Ley, Kai Pickard, Lucas Zions, Codie Jeffrey and Jack Wilson  started off strong with 3 wins and a 2nd out of 4 heats on day one and were one of the leading teams coming into the 2nd day with some very close final round results seeing Kirra finish equal second, with Snapper for number of wins (5) but placing 5th overall after the other 3 heat results were counted.
