Bradley Hunt is a national surf lifesaving champ
TWELVE months ago Byron Bay competitor Bradley Hunt was feeling pretty good after coming third in the Under-14 beach sprint at the Australian surf lifesaving championships.
Now he's feeling on top of the world.
The 15-year-old took out the sprint in his age division in front of a packed crowd at Maroochydore Beach on the Sunshine Coast.
"I'm only catching up with it all, there's so much adrenaline," he said.
Despite winning all of his heats and his semi-final, moments before the final he was still feeling anxious.
"I was really nervous because the cap didn't go off the first time," he said.
With the help of coaches Phil Newton and Gavin Marshall at Byron Bay, Hunt said he had made steady improvement in the past 12 months and that Byron Bay was a great club to be part of.
"I've been in pretty good form and performed well in the Fastest Man on Sand heats recently," he said.
