The Southern Surf Festival 2018



Surfing SA are proud to annonce the 2018 Southern Surf Festival which is a three-day celebration of South Australian surfing and surf competition held from April 27-29 at Middleton Point on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula. The festival is the first of its kind to be held in the state and will feature 200 competitors vying for State Championship status in shortboard, longboard, standup and kneeboard surfing along with a wide range of family friendly activities. 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. 


The entire three days will be a true celebration of surfing in South Australia, incorporating all aspects of our unique and inclusive surf culture.As part of the event we want to support the local community to join with us in celebrating surfing. We are looking for partners to present a board swap, play music, present art, present surf movies, provide entertainment or food or any other surfing related community activity. We will provide scheduling, space, facilities and marketing support for any such activities. 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 29 will see a more social day take place with an interclub teams competition attracting SA-based clubs from Yorke Peninsula to Robe in the South East.  

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.
