Greater Port Macquarie - What's On
Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles 2013
Proudly sponsored by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, Port Macquarie's luscious beaches play host once again to the Longboard titles for NSW in 2013.
More than 200 competitors will take part in the event. The longboard is a minimum of 9 feet which must also satisfy width requirements. The surfing is judged on a combination of modern manouvres (as it is with shortboards) and traditional manouvres such as noseriding (from back when all boards were long and much heavier). Longboards are also called "mals" which is short for "Malibu" - a famous break in California where Gidget originated.
13 divisions are being contested - from cadets to over 60s. Surfers come from all up and down the NSW coast and are competing to get into the NSW team for the Australian titles - also to be held in Port Macquarie in June.
The event is free to spectators, but competitors are required to pay an entry fee to cover judging, administration and insurance.
Divisions: Multiple division entry is permitted.
Open Men, Open Women, Under 18 Boys, Under 18 Girls, Over 35 Men, Over 35 Women, Over 40 Men, Over 45 Men, Over 50 Men, Over 55 Men, Over 60 Men.
This will be the qualification event to proceed and represent NSW at the Australian Surf Festival in the Longboard division at Port Macquarie Saturday 10 - Saturday 24 August 2013.
