Moir and Lyndon head to Nutri-Grain Series

FORMER Far North Coast surf lifesavers Brodie Moir and Tanyn Lyndon will head to Newcastle this week for the third and fourth rounds of the Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Series.

Moir is fourth overall after the first two rounds on the Sunshine Coast.

"I am feeling great coming off the back of Coolangatta Gold and if I can carry top- five finishes through the series it would be a dream," she said.

"I've been working hard in the off-season and enjoying racing."

The 28-year-old is a former Coolangatta Gold winner and has previously finished in the top three overall in the Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Series.

Meanwhile, Lyndon has some ground to make up after finishing at the bottom of the leader board.

He went through the qualifying series to earn his spot this season and is competing for the fourth time.

"Not the greatest start for me but I'm super stoked to be racing again," Lyndon said.

Eight-time champion Shannon Eckstein dominated at Coolum, winning the first two rounds, and will be hard to beat this season.

Moir and Lyndon are both from Lennox Head and now live on the Gold Coast.

The final two rounds will be held at Cronulla Beach in Sydney next month.
