The Noosa Surf Museum Old Mal
The Old Mal Division is perhaps the Noosa Festival of Surfing’s most popular. Year in year out it’s 36 positions are filled in a matter of weeks.
Surfers must ride “Old school” longboards dating back to the 1960’s…1968 to be precise, in order to be eligible to compete.
The Old Mal is open to both Men and Women and usually runs in the back half of the 9 day Noosa Festival of Surfing.
In 2024 the Noosa Surf Museum will continue its longtime support of the Old Mal and for the first time will introduce an Old Mal Masters division catering to the O55 purists.
This is a fitting partnership with a venue that has fast become a popular hang out for the old relics proudly hanging throughout, as well as the young and old to enjoy. The museum has hosted several events over the years during the Noosa Festival of Surfing and will continue to do so in 2024.
