Top surf talent here to train

THE cream of the North Coast’s junior surf life savers are in the area this week for an elite Academy of Sport training camp.

Byron Bay twins Alex and Tom Burns and Lennox Head’s champion girl Ellie Lever will be joined by 24 of the brightest young athletes from Port Macquarie to Tweed for three days of intensive testing and training.

Experienced Sydney coach Peter Kirkwood is joined by Lou Wilson of Lennox Head and Ted McCartney and Craig McBrien of Woolgoolga to oversee the operation at Lake Ainsworth and Byron Bay.

The young athletes will be tracked through training and then attend video analysis and feedback sessions.

The camp began on Monday and will conclude tomorrow.
