THE ALEXANDRA Headland open men's crew put an exclamation mark on its successful aussieBum Avenger Series campaign by winning the last round at Mooloolaba yesterday and securing overall honours.

Going into the fifth and final round, Alexandra Headland knew something extraordinary would have to befall it for it not to land the series title.

After taking out yesterday's final in style in flat conditions, the crew hopes to duplicate its hot form at the upcoming state and national surf lifesaving championships at Kurrawa, on the Gold Coast.

On a great day for the Alex surf club, its under-23 men's and women's crews and under-19 men's crew also claimed series victories.

With an eye to the near future, Alexandra Headland open men's captain-sweep Steve Davies heaped praise on his crew and club.

"All four crews are going really well," he said.

"I just hope things work out at the states and nationals.

"Kurrawa can serve up anything.

"The four crews are going quick enough (to do well) if they make the most of their opportunities when presented."

Northcliffe finished second in yesterday's open men's final and Coolum came third.

"Four of us came down on a wave together and we just finished off a little better," Davies said.

"Hopefully, it (the club's good run) continues. All the crews are going quite well.

"I certainly wouldn't be over-confident (about the open men's chances at the state and national titles).

"I'm just happy with the progress."
