Opening day at the Port Stephens Surf Festival
The opening day of the 2019 Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles kicked off the Port Stephens Surf Festival today, with longboarders attacking clean two-to-three foot conditions at One Mile Beach.
William Crowe (Collaroy), Harry Maskell (Wamberal) and Sam Ticknor (Evans Head) all put on commanding performances in the opening Open Men’s heats.
The 2019 SUP State Titles and the 2019 Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles will call Port Stephens home from the 20th- 25th June 2019.
The two state title events will form the Port Stephens Surf Festival and decide the NSW Teams for the upcoming Australian SUP Titles in Currumbin and the Australian Longboard Titles at Tweed Heads.
Over 200 competitors are expected to compete in the six-day event.
The competition will commence each day at 7:30 am with the call for the day’s schedule and location confirmed via the event hotline at 6:45 am. The event hotline is 0458 247 212.
