President of Kneeboard Surf Australia, John Clingan, speaks highly of the Coffs Harbour region, which has hosted the event for 8 successful years.
"The area has a fantastic selection of world class beaches and contest venues. We return each year to Coffs as we have such great support from the local council and business community, each year we see new entrants from all over".
"Local business's have consistently given us support over the years and now the collaboration with Surfing NSW has really given the kneeboard community recognition and strengthened our organisation", said Clingan
Surfing NSW and Kneeboard Surf Australia have been working together to strengthen the sport and continue the growth, which is evident in this years entries, as a micro-grom division has been added which allows parents to assist in the water.
At the very young age of 5 years old, Ashton Cooper from Newcastle will be learning new skills with his fellow micro-groms under the age of 8. There is just three of them, but they will be having a ball and walk away with a video of their day at the Australian Kneeboard Titles.
Open to men and women from under 16 years to over 55 divisions, organisers encourage new participants to have a go and be a part of the great social event that is the Australian Kneeboard Titles.
