ALSO 15-19th Page Header

The Australian Longboard Surfing Open caters for surfers of all ages and abilities as well as those that identify with the carefree surfing lifestyle. We recognise that competition is not for everyone..... indeed a large part of longboard community identifies with it through many other mediums. Whether it be art, music, photography, working with wood, clothing, painting, cooking or community involvement, surfers have developed their own unique culture out of the surf.

FRIDAY MORNING is FLURO FRIDAY

Come down to Fluro Friday. On Friday March 17th at 6.30am (NSW time) we will hold a Fluro Friday at Kingscliff thanks to the crew from ONE WAVE and with the crew from the  Tweed Headspace. Fluro Friday is about just getting together and having some fun in the surf to wash away the funk that we all suffer sometimes and to let others that are suffering at the moment know that they are not alone.
