Diverse Lending Solutions Womens Open
The Diverse Lending Solutions Women’s Open brings together the two façets of contemporary longboarding. Some opt for three fins and a more performance approach, others are devoted lady-lumberjacks, riding nothing but logs. But the ones who make the biggest impression are the beat longboarders, the ones who can do it all and match their surfing with the conditions and a more consummate skill-set. It’s not old-school, it’s definitely not high performance – it’s a bit of both and a whole heap more. It is beat longboarding.

Tia Deighton (Mandu)
Tia blew onto the Noosa scene last year, making the trek from the New South Wales coast and displaying a fluid, competent and, at times, powerful style that made everyone, most of all her fellow competitors pay attention. Since then (mostly thanks to a talented filmmaker called Gary!) we have seen Tia devoting herself to surfing in all conditions, honing her already significant style and having loads of fun while doing so! Whether in the Open or the LadyLogger Pro, we're expecting big things of Tia.
