NICK and Chloe Caldwell share a different sort of sibling rivalry - there's no doubt who is the better one.
The brother-sister duo will represent Mid North Coast for the first time at Surf Life Saving NSW's interbranch carnival this weekend.
When they hit the water at Bulli Beach near Wollongong, 14-year-old Chloe was the first to admit that her older brother will more than likely perform better.
"Nick's the best because he's older and a bit more experienced," she said.
They also have two different outlooks on what to expect at the carnival.
Nick doesn't mind that he doesn't know what to expect while Chloe preferred to know what she was up against.
"It's probably a bad thing I don't know because unlike Nick I don't psyche myself out at all," she said.
"I like to know what to expect, but it's nice to have a relaxed carnival."
Her 15-year-old brother admitted he often "over thought" his races.
"It's my first carnival so I'm not really sure who's going to be there or what it's going to be like," he said.
"I don't know what the conditions are so I'm going to go out there, give it my best and see what happens."
The 2019 NSW Interbranch Championships brings together the best athletes from all 11 surf life saving branches for two days of elite competition.
Along with the Caldwell's, Mid North Coast has a handful of country championship title winners.
Among them, they will field Port Macquarie's Kate Filed who is the under-17 two kilometre Beach Run champion and Tacking Point's Tyse Thrower who made a bang this year at Cudgen Headland taking out the under-12 board race.
