Organisers have taken an opening in the Australian surfing calendar to move the contest to the beginning of March enabling the travelling surfers more opportunity to compete in two events back to back - with the Australian Open running from 28th February to the 4th of March and Noosa Festival starting the following week.

Then it is expected that those competitors that have qualified for the World Longboard Titles will be able to travel from Brisbane directly to PNG.

The Australian Longboard Surfing Open will celebrate its 7th year at Kingscliff in 2018.
Early indications are 2018 is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before, with unprecedented interest generated at the 2017 event from international competitors many who competed at Kingscliff before travelling to PNG. With more activities on the beach and more divisions than ever to be contested there is something for everyone no matter age, gender, or ability.
Australian Longboard Surfing Open organiser Sean McKeown said "For longboarders travelling to Australia we want to give them the opportunity to maximise their surfing experience. Two quality events plus the chance to enjoy the best of Australian surf culture."
World Surf League Longboard Qualifying Series men's an women's divisions will open at a later date.
We have made it easier for international competitors to sign up by partnering with Surfsignup.
