Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 March, 2012 : - - Once again Huey smiled upon us and we had terrific surf conditions in front of the SLSC at Kingscliff  ranging from 3-5ft over the five days of competition. The Cudgen SLSC provided excellent amenities for the judges and administration to work from throughout the five days and we take this opportunity to thank them and the Kingscliff Boardriders Club who graciously allowed us to surf in their spot.

Although overall competitor numbers were down this year we still attracted competitors from all around the world including Canada, Reunion Island, Spain, Japan, New Zealand, Hawaii and California as well as Victoria, WA, Qld and of course from along the east coast of NSW. The most notable names in attendance being current ASP World Title holder Taylor Jensen, 2009 ASP World Title holder Harley Ingleby, 2006 ASP World Title holder Josh Constable and dual ASP Woman's World Title holder in 2007 and 2009 Jen Smith from California.

Other notables in attendance included from the recent World SUP Surfing Titles world number 2 Justin Holland and World number 4 Jackson Close. And from the same  World SUP Titles 1st and 2nd place getters, Jamie Mitchell and Travis Grant. To help with the presentation we were fortunate to have Australia's first ever World Surfing Champion Phyllis O'Donell on hand to help.

Activities ranged from surfing in pro and amateur divisions, historical surfboards and tandem and alaia displays. On the land there were surf movies, a book signing, cooking demonstration, bands, bikini parade, art classes, coaching clinics and classic cars and surf vehicles.

The results from the 2012 Australian Longboard Surfing Open are attached for  your enjoyment and photos and video clips are available on our facebook page The dates for the 2013 Australian Longboard Surfing Open have been set for March 20 -24 and we hope that we will see you there again.
