So here is the official event poster for 2018, featuring Kingscliff's Godfather of soul and surfing icon Ray Gleave, 2017 Australian longboard champion and noseriding maestro Cooly's Dane Pioli, and Sunny Coast kid Nic Brewer on the cover. Also featured with the three surfers is the famous Cook Island backdrop, and three token Kingscliff animals styling with the surfers - a gull, tern and dolphin symbolising the glide and flow of longboard surfing and the culture and legacy of the township and the event. The surf images are all photographs from Kingscliff and taken during the competition by our legendary lensman Luke Sorensen - designed by the Coral Sea Media team.
