Festival Partnership Opportunities Are Now Available
If you would like to become part of the world’s largest surfing festival, help support the local economy and join us in our ‘8 Days of Pure Stoke’, please email [email protected] for further info.
The Noosa Festival of Surfing will return in 2018, once again with the generous support of Laguna Real Estate as named partner.
“It is fantastic to be involved in such an international event which attracts people to Noosa from all over the world and Australia,” enthuses Olivier Miller, Principal of Laguna Real Estate, who brought much needed last-minute support to this year’s event to make it possible.
Noosa’s premiere real estate agent for sales, long-term and holiday rentals, Laguna Real Estate has become an integral part of the festival, synonymous with our ‘8 Days of Pure Stoke’ and inspiration for the continual tide of ongoing local support.
They might not feature in surf mags around the world, they might not be sponsored by the big brands, and they might not know rocker from a rail, but these four-legged shredders are some of the most popular surfers on the beach when the festival rolls around each year. VetShopAustralia.com.au returns once again for the Australian Surfing Dog Championships, a pack of hydro-hounds currently in a brutal training regimen of doggy paddling, hanging paws and tummy rubs, readying for the 2018 event, which is sure to be bigger than ever before and more keenly anticipated than bin day at the butcher’s!
Joining VetShopAustralia.com.au as co-presenter, Simparica will be on the sand, protecting the pack of surfin’ canines from pesky fleas and nasty ticks. With one delicious chewable tablet (not suitable for human consumption!), your dog will be protected for a whole month, with no worry about it washing off or diluting in the waves. Who knows – it might even work on sea lice!
Join us Saturday 10 March at Noosa’s Main Beach for all the cute and cuddly action of the VetShopAustralia.com.au Surfing Dog Championships!
The surfy-clubby vibe has always had rumblings of descent – the ’60s board taxes, the whistle-blowing and always managing to place their red and yellow flags on the beach’s best bank! But here in Noosa, we’ve always done things differently.
The Festival and Noosa’s Surf Lifesaving Club have always been closely intertwined – they provide adequate space for us to compete and we bring the best surfers in the world and thousands of hungry, thirsty spectators to their doorstep! Each year, we showcase the young talent emerging from the ranks of Nippers and welcome the clubbies with open arms to celebrate our mutual love of the ocean.
We are stoked and honoured to once again welcome our Speedo-wearing counterparts of the Noosa Heads Surf Lifesaving Club back to the festival family and thank them for once more relinquishing their beach for a rowdy rabble of surfers.
It is in a surfer’s blood to yearn for new horizons. When New Age Caravans‘ Paul Cameron first started surfing at the age of 15, he never could have imagined that he would make a career of selling the ideal surfari vehicle! “…The synergy between surfers and caravans is so strong”, says Paul. “Surfers love getting away and exploring our vast coastline for unexplored or uncrowded waves. With the array of different products that New Age Caravans offers, there are numerous caravans that can allow surfers to access terrains that caravans historically have struggled to do.”
Operating since 2008, New Age Caravans has long been committed to creating caravans for all terrains with all the comforts of home. They’ve designed all their caravans with you in mind, offering the space, quality and innovation that make their caravans something you’ll actually want to travel in.
“[Noosa] is what I consider the greatest surf location – our playground in paradise!” says Paul. “I took up longboarding in South Australia and have loved that genre ever since. I’m really looking forward to mixing with surfers and promoting our brand. I really believe that New Age Caravans are the perfect home-from-home for any surfari, from weekends away to countrywide trips.”
Paul will be joining us on the sand at Main Beach with one of his models for you to jump aboard and explore, and to find out more about the New Age range. We are thrilled to welcome New Age Caravans on board for the first time as presenting sponsors of the New Age Caravans Logger Pro.
The XXXX Summer Beach Bar has been the hub of nocturnal activity for the last five years and the venue will return, bigger and better, in 2018. With a collection of films, music and other events all FREE to the public, the jam-packed schedule will make the XXXX Summer Beach Bar will be the place to be when the sun sets.
It would be hard to find a more perfect place in the world to enjoy a post-surf evening of camaraderie, good tunes, surf films and a host of other events. We are stoked to welcome XXXX Summer Bright back on board and look forward to announcing a schedule of excellent activities over the coming months.
If you are a filmmaker or musician wishing to take part, please email your submission to [email protected]
Golden Breed has been a stalwart supporter of the festival for many years, signing on as the Noserider named sponsor almost a decade ago. The brand’s flagship Noosa Heads store has long been the reliable go-to shop for surf apparel and accessories, as well as a wide collection of surfboards, including Creative Army and Gordon & Smith.
Golden Breed will also host the Surfer’s Hardware Shack, right on the sand at First Point throughout the 2018 festival, providing all the essentials for surfers and beachgoers alike, as well as being the festival’s official merchandise creator and outlet. So if you’re caught out without a leggie, lose your fin, need a fresh lick of wax, or are just in the mood for the 2018 Noosa Festival of Surfing tee, Golden Breed will be right there to help you out.
Back once again as the official after-hours venue for everything music and entertainment, Cafe le Monde is once more proudly supporting the Laguna Real Estate Noosa Festival of Surfing. ‘Fuelling surfers since ’86’, Cafe le Monde is older than the festival itself, celebrating 32 years of fine coffees, delicious food, great bands and refreshing, post-surf beverages in 2018.
When the sun has set, the music has faded and the last beer has been drained at the festival’s Beach Bar, Cafe le Monde will keep the pure stoke flowing well into the night, bringing camaraderie, frivolity and a few sore heads to festival revellers of all ages. Added to that, they’ll nurse you back in on the other side of a good night out, opening bright and early for delicious healthy and indulgent breakfasts and fine coffee to dust the cobwebs away, ready for another day of action at the Laguna Real Estate Noosa Festival of Surfing.
