Eight champions have been crowned at the third and final stage of the 2015 SunSmart Western Australia Bodyboard Titles, held at Trigg Beach.

A total of 25 bodyboarders will represent Western Australia at the Australian Bodyboard Titles to be held at Coffs Harbour, NSW, from August 13th-17th.

Kyle Ward had already secured his title in the Open Men's division, but Noah Symmans proved he's a star on the rise. The athlete from Albany won the event in both Open and Junior categories. He is the new WA Junior champion.

"I love competing and being pushed to perform to the best of my ability. I'm really looking forward to getting back to Nationals and see how I'll rate against the best guys in the country," revealed Symmans.

In the Under 16 Cadet Boys, Brad Harrington claimed the State Title, but it was Matt Hanks who celebrated a last-event victory.

"I surf a lot with Brad and Henry and knew that it was going to be a close result. I'm over the moon to take the win and qualify for my first National Titles," added Hanks.
