SURFING

Depending on the swell, the competition may be staged at Melrose Parade, Maroochydore.

Overview

For the first time, the surfing event will be held at the ‘Bluff’ Alexandra Headland this year.   Whether you’re an avid surfer landing ‘sushi rolls’ regularly or someone who still contemplates where to apply wax to their board and has never entered a competition before – this is the event for you. A great social event with a great bunch of people. If you enjoy the water, give it a try. You’ll love it.
