The 2018 SAE Group Australian Surf Festival will see a lay-day called, with all the finals action of the North Star Holiday Resort Australian Bodyboard Titles expected to finish tomorrow.

Surfing Australia Contest Director Glen Elliot stated: “Torrential rain and a small north-east wind-swell made the choice an easy one today. With only 20 heats to finalise the SAE Group Australian Surf Festival, we decided to wait for an anticipated rise in north swell and light offshore winds, which are being forecasted for tomorrow. We will make a call early with the hope to maximise the high tide in the morning.”

All 2018 Australian Bodyboard Champions will be crowned tomorrow.

The daily schedule and location will be confirmed via the event hotline at 6:45am each day. The event hotline is 0458 247 212.
