Top Longboarders Hit the Sunshine Coast for the Classic Malibu Pro presented by Spiral Foods chasing $6,000.00 in Prize Money
Surfing Queensland is proud to announce a new event on the Australian Longboard Circuit, the Classic Malibu Pro present, a 5A rated Men's and 1A Rated Women's Event. Held on the Sunshine Coast on the 27th/28th November some of Australia's best Longboarders will be out to walk the plank, ride the hook, and hanging 10 toes on the malibu. Also included will be Junior Boys and Team events.
Surfing Queensland are proud to be involved, Surfing Queensland CEO Andrew Stark said "We are thrilled to be staging a 5A Rated ALC event in Queensland and to incorporate the club teams event will add a great social and club environment to the event. We are very appreciative of the support of Classic Malibu for assisting us to develop longboarding in Queensland"
Surfing Queensland Longboard Representative Trevor Brady was thrilled with the new event, said "said I welcome Classic Malibu as the sponsor of a new Australian Longboard Championship Event for Queensland. This event, to be run in conjunction with a Surfing Queensland Womens, Junior and Interclub competition will see an opportunity for the BEST Longboard surfers in Australia to demonstrate radical, high performance maneuvers on modern longboards. Well done Classic Malibu!"
Local surfers expected to be a real force are 2004 Queensland Champion Seb Wilson, brothers Bart and 16 year old younger brother Julian current the Australian Junior Champion. Australian Open Champion Josh Constable will hard to beat as well. Along with another Sunshine Coast long boarder, Grant Thomas, they will be out to stop Gold Coasters Craig Harvey and Jackson Close getting a share of the cash after their good results in the Queensland Titles. A field of surfers from all over Australia expected to enter with the $5000.00 cash on offer.
In the Open Women's Division Queensland Open Champion Tegan Riddle and sister U/18 Champion Selby will be the ones to beat for the $1000.00 on offer, but Sunshine Coast Champion Lauren Rayner will be giving the Coolangatta sisters a run for their money after their one/two finish in the Queensland Titles. Deane Ashmore is another Sunshine Coast surfer to watch.
In the Club teams event Noosa and Alexandra Heads will have the local knowledge as an advantage, but the Gold Coast Longboard clubs will be no easy beats.
The event is mobile, but organizers are hoping to hold the event in the Maroochydore Shire
