SURFER Luke Campbell is King of the Point for the third time.

The Margaret River surfer took out the title at this weekend’s competition in Trigg, ahead of Yokine’s Jake Molloy.

Campbell grew up surfing waves at Trigg Point and his treble equals the record for most King of the Point titles won.

“I’m so stoked right now, words can’t describe what this event or this wave means to me,” he said.

Molloy’s second place finish came after beating former World Surf League Championship Tour surfer Taj Burrow in the quarter finals and Jay Davies in the semi final.

Emma Cattlin was crowned Queen of the Point, ahead of Scarborough’s Madi Ratcliffe, Coral Durant and Chloe Weir, of Ocean Reef.

“I feel really honoured to win this prestigious event,” Cattlin said.

“The set up, the format, equal prize money, everything about this event has been special and I’ll remember this moment for a long time to come.”

Alex McGuffin (Bicton) won the under 21 Prince of the Point division and Dylan Vernon edged out Trigg’s Jack Mickle in the under 16 Jester of the Point final.

Tommy Trigwell was Lord of the Point (over 40s division), while Doubleview surfer Luke Hayter and Trigg’s Mark Clift finished third and fourth respectively.
