Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) advises the QLD IRB Championships on North Stradbroke Island have been suspended due to dangerous surf conditions.
While it is disappointing that the adverse conditions have disrupted the event, the safety of our competitors and officials remains paramount and that will always be the priority for SLSQ.
SLSQ has safety processes in place for this exact reason and suspending competition is a clear demonstration of our commitment to protecting the wellbeing of our members.
Event organisers will be monitoring conditions around the clock, and the carnival committee will provide further information whether competition will recommence early Sunday morning.
We thank competitors and all team managers for their understanding.
