The start time for this one day competition was pushed back to 9am to allow for improved conditions resulting from the rising tide and changing swell direction.

After an 18 month hiatus from competitive bodyboarding, Andrew Lester, a former Australian National Champion and 2001 Pipeline Champion, would claim the victory and add the 2014 Shark Island Challenge to his already impressive career resume.
Congratulations to the 2014 Shark Island Challenge Champion Andrew Lester!
