Malibu Classic at Yallingup
Longboarders will hit the waves for the annual Yallingup Malibu Classic this weekend at Yallingup Main Break.
Hosted by the Indian Ocean Longboard Club, the event is in its 34th year and marks the end of the 2018 WA longboard competition season.
This year’s competition consists of 13 divisions, including a teams event, open “eight-footer” division, under-18 junior men’s and women’s and open logger. Past winners include Justin Redman, brother of professional surfer Melanie Redman-Carr, who won the open division for the 11th time in 2016.
Two-time Australian champion Georgia Young, from Cottesloe, won last year’s open women’s division, Dunsborough’s Jarryd Foster was the open men’s winner, and best wipeout went to Margaret River’s Doug Carruthers.
The event will be held tomorrow and on Sunday.
