• Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Festival is on this weekend!

It will be a step back in time with the first surfing event of 2011 calendar, with the Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Festival. Presented by surfwear pioneer Billabong, this event celebrates the surfing, the surfboards, and the times of the single fin surfboard era, with Billabong created in the middle of this era in 1973. The Festival consists of the Burleigh Boardriders Charity Luncheon on Friday the 7th of January, followed by the Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Classic, presented by Billabong on Saturday 8th, and Sunday 9th January.

The 14th Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Classic, presented by Billabong will be held at the iconic world famous Burleigh Point on Saturday and Sunday the 8th & 9th of January. This unique event sees surfers competing on single fin surfboards, made pre-1985, some of these surfboards over 40 years old. The event at times is like a museum display of unique collectable surfboards, 3 decades of surfboard design evolution for all to see. The surfing is an incredible sight to witness at the classic break on classic equipment. 2010 champion, 18-year-old Thomas Woods who was born in the thruster era, was blasting air-reverses and all sorts of Modern Day maneuvers, thought impossible when the single fin was king. Woods' surfboard was more than twice his age, and surfers from 11 to 50 years plus will be taking part in the event.
