The Scarborough Sunsets have proven west is best as they took out the inaugural Super Surf Teams League trophy at North Cronulla Beach on Sunday.
The final round of the Super Surf Teams League saw a myriad of winners from all teams battle it out for dominance over the three rounds.
Thirteen teams from across Australia competed in the inaugural 2019 season as curtain-raisers for rounds three to five of the Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWoman Series.
Teams comprising of four male and four female athletes competed in Ski, Swim, Board and Beach events, as well as the mixed team Ocean Life Saver Relay.
The Sunsets finished up on top followed by the Sunshine Coast Marlins and the South Coast Makos in third.
Elouera gun board paddler Chris King made it a three-peat as he won his third super Surf Team League board race for the Sydney City Sharks.
King was just one of a dozen local surf lifesavers competing in the Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWoman Series pre-event with North Cronulla's Alexandra Rampoldi second in the female Beach Flags and Cronulla's Isabellah Walker 5th in the women's Beach Sprint.
On Saturday in less than ideal conditions Wanda Beach SLSC hosted round 3, the final round of the Summer of Surf series this year
This season the Summer of Surf packed a whole year of racing into 3 weekends across NSW and Queensland, forcing clubs to field their best possible teams every round, with one mistake being the difference between winning an overall title.
The weather didnt help anyone with a howling southerly big swell and rain making conditions almost unsurfable-local competitors made the most of the chance to compete at home and Sutherland Shire Lifeguards also came to the rescue helping a Noosa Heads competitor who was pulled from the water during the Ironwoman final.
