The 2019 Southern Surf Festival is a three-day celebration of South Australian surfing and surf competition.
Held at Middleton Point on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula. The festival will feature over 200 competitors vying for State Championship status in shortboard, longboard, standup and kneeboard surfing along with an inter club twin-fin and single-fin event. There will be music, food trucks, local wine, beer and much more. Supported by Alexandrina Council, the event is expected to attract thousands of visitors and attendees and hundreds of overnight stays on the famed South Coast surf mecca.
Reflecting on our Proud Surfing History
The entire three days will be a true celebration of surfing in South Australia, incorporating all aspects of our unique and inclusive surf culture. From board swaps to surf art to food vendors, the family friendly festival will have something for everybody, no matter how actively involved in the sport you are. For those wanting to give surfing a go for the first time, a range of surf schools will be operating on the Sunday.
Sunday April 28 will see a more social day take place with an inter club teams competition attracting SA-based clubs from Yorke Peninsula to Robe in the South East. Middleton Point will also host a twin and single-fin event and surfboard paddle race.
On Saturday evening revellers will be invited to attend a ‘Stomp’ at a local Hotel, which will set the scene for a party-like atmosphere and a nostalgic journey harking back to the famous surfer parties of the 1960s. A surf movie night is also planned for Friday evening to officially launch the weekend.
