Alexandra Headland
Easter weekend 26th - 29th March, 2005

The beachfront at Alexandra Headland is set to come alive this Easter with the inaugural Billabong Girls Easter Surfing Festival, presented by Vodafone.

Held over four days the Easter Surfing Festival will be jam packed with competitive surfing, learn to surf programs and market stalls which will make for a great atmosphere and festive long weekend.

The Easter Surfing Festival will see some of the countries' top female surfers converge on the Sunshine  Coast for round 1 of the Billabong Queensland Surfing Series and the only WQS event to be held in Queensland. The competitions will be rolled out over the four days and include:

Dual rated - World Qualifying Series and Billabong Queensland Surf Series event. This event will attract some of the top female surfers to vie for the $5,000 usd prize purse. Billabong WCT Surfers Keala Kennelly and Rebecca Woods will be amongst them. Coming directly from the Bell's WCT event the girls will be pumped and keen to make their mark at this prestigous Billabong Girls Event. Billabong's Sheriden Shields who features on the poster will also be looking for a great result.

ASP rated Billabong Pro Teen event, where the top under 20 year old female surfers go head to head for the chance to win the $3,000 aud prize purse.

Women's 4A Australian Longboard Circuit event with $1,000 up for grabs.

There will also be a number of other age category events including, U14, U16, Open B, Over 28 and Over 35.

With the competition expected to motivate girls to want to get into surfing we are running a Billabong Girls Get Out There Day in addition to the competitive events.

The Easter Surfing Festival is the first "girls only" surfing event that offers so many opportunities for female surfers at all levels from professionals through to first time beginners. The clean water breaks of Alexandra Headland will provide the perfect setting for showcasing a host of Australian and International female talent across a range of surfing disciplines.
