Risk pays off for O'Donnell

LAST weekend's NSW Bodyboard State Titles in Kiama were an outstanding success, with 10 champions named after the finals at Jones Beach, Kiama Downs on Sunday.

Open Drop Knee division standout Corey O'Donnell (Copacabana) managed to save his best until last when he threw down a series of risky and critical manoeuvres to snatch the title in the final 30 seconds of the heat, downing Martin Fowler (Adamstown Heights) in a tight final.

After scoring a late entry into the Open Men division and seeing his brother Darcy Bourke take out the Junior Men final, Joe Bourke (Copacabana) proceeded to tear apart his competition to claim the Open Mens' title.

In the Open Womens' division, Everline Mussi locked in an impressive 12.83 heat total to take a narrow win over Shauna Gillett, who finished in the runner-up spot by less than 0.2 points.

Sisters Teigan and Sam Gillett (Martinsville) managed to claim first and second respectively in the Junior Women final. The duo locked in a handful of respectable scores to claim the top spots and knock Sophie Leathers into third spot.

Matthew Mytka (Kogarah) performed an eclectic mix of manoeuvres to claim the Senior Mens' title, while Darcy Bourke (Copacabana) added another title to the Central Coast kitty, when he locked in multiple high-scoring waves to claim the Junior Men title.

Last year's National Grand Masters champion Greg Chambers (Mona Vale) took down Paul Mace (Elermore Vale) to win the Masters title.
