Longboard And Logger Divisions To Get 2018 SAE Group Australian Surf Festival Underway

Surfing Australia's picture

CASUARINA/NSW (August 10th/2018): The Australian Longboard and Logger Titles will kickstart the 2018 SAE Group Australian Surf Festival from Saturday, August 11th on the Tweed Coast with another bumper field set to contest both divisions.

Cabarita Point is the likely venue for competition with the Tweed point break set to provide perfect conditions for surfers in the Longboard and Logger divisions.

Multiple Australian Champion Clint Guest is ready for the challenge after a month of training at home on the Sunshine Coast. A former Burleigh local, Guest is more than familiar with the Tweed region and the many different waves it has on offer.

“Having competition at Cabarita last year was the perfect venue for longboard surfing. The right-hand peelers will provide the perfect canvas for Australia’s best to showcase both classic and modern styles of the sport again this year.”

Guest, who surfed in his first SAE Group Australian Surf Festival at age fifteen, has competed for twelve years straight against some of the biggest names in Aussie and world longboarding and expects 2018 to be no different.  

Guys like Dane Pioli and Nick Jones will be the biggest threat to my title chase. I have heard rumours of a couple of other household names who may be in the draw as well which would be great to see.

Guest will be chasing his third Australian Title when the SAE Group Australian Surf Festival gets underway tomorrow morning.
