– It’s about time!

Running in partnership with the Pa & Ma Bendall surf contest (second longest running surf competition in Australia – second only to Bells Beach), the Caloundra Surf Festival will celebrate the rich surfing culture on the Sunshine Coast.

The Caloundra Surf Festival incorporates a first class surfing competition, surf art, photographic & historical displays. There will be famous surfing identities & demonstrations, plus astonishing surf movies & music – there is something for everyone.

The Caloundra Surf Festival will take place at Moffat Beach each morning of Easter weekend & back at the Caloundra RSL Thursday, Saturday & Sunday night (closed for Good Friday).

A major element of the Caloundra Surf Festival is the surf art competitions – so we are calling all budding artists to enter their best surf art in a variety of categories (please see attached sheet) for a chance to have their art displayed & win some fantastic prizes.

Down on the grass at Moffat Beach on the Saturday morning (as the Pa & Ma Bendall competition is happening in the water) there will be a board swap which is sure to attract plenty of interest. Bring your old or new surfboard/s, including mals, fishes & shortboards, along with any unique designs. Interact with other swappers, hunt down a bargain, or add to your own collection. A great environment to meet fellow surfers, local characters & board collectors, whilst appreciating all the unique forms in which a surfboard can be designed.

More details will be coming very soon, but the wheels are rolling & the momentum is building. As our slogan says “It’s About Time”.

Caloundra Surf Festival, Easter Weekend 2012 – bring it on!

    Was wondering what to do over Easter – visit rellies or drink, listen to music and surf. Pity they live on the Sunshine coast otherwise I could have just drunk, danced and surfed. Now I have to visit them too.
