2020 Festival News!!!
The World Surfaris Noosa Festival of Surfing incorporating the WSL Noosa Longboard Open is shaping up to be the biggest Festival ever. The WSL Pro surfers take to the water at First Point, Noosa, Queensland first thing on Saturday 22 February 2020. The WSL Pros have the first four (4) days of the Festival to decide who will take the first win of the 2020 WSL Longboard season.
On Wednesday 26 February 2020, the age, logger and team divisions of the Festival commence and run for the next five (5) days. The ever-popular Vetshop dog surfing will be held on the afternoon of Sunday 1 March 2020, which is the last day of the 2020 Festival. The awards ceremony will commence at 4pm on the stage at the Beach Bar on Sunday 1 March 2020.
As well as the old favourite events like the Thomas Surfboards Opening Party on the first Saturday, the Board Meeting Charity Dinner on Friday 28 February (which raises funds for kids with disabilities) and the Vetshop dog surfing on the last Sunday, the Noosa Festival of Surfing is delighted to announce that the The Drop Music Festival will stage its first show of the year in Noosa on Saturday 29 February 2020. Festival participants can purchase heavily discounted Drop Festival tickets via the Noosa Festival of Surfing website – click on the link at https://www.noosafestivalofsurfing.com/
Interest in competing in the Festival has been keener than ever, with most divisions now full. The teams event has the most places available – Thomas Surfboards are looking forward to some strong competition as they defend their inaugural team title.
There will also be some new faces helping to run the public side of the Festival in 2020. Thomas Alexander has reluctantly had to decline our offer to anchor the commentators’ box again, as he now lives in Bali and works a full-time job there. While we will miss his talent and smooth efficiency, we have been fortunate to recruit the very experienced Jason Weekes and the very charismatic Ambrose McNeill to undertake the all-important commentary responsibilities during the second half of the Festival. They will be ably supported by a number of knowledgeable guest commentators throughout.Read more articles
