Surfing Australia announced the new location for the 2024 Australian Longboard Titles.

This year, the longboard divisions of the 2024 Australian Surf Championships will run as a stand-alone event on Bundjalung Country on the Tweed Coast in northern New South Wales.

The event will be held over six days from Thursday, September 12, 2024 to Tuesday, September 17, 2024, with possible event locations including Cabarita Beach, Hastings Point, Kingscliff Beach, Fingal Beach and Duranbah Beach.

The announcement follows Surfing Australia’s decision to hold the Australian Shortboard Titles, the Australian Para Surfing Titles and the Australian Bodyboard Titles in Port Macquarie, NSW (July 31st – August 8th) and the Australian SUP Titles on Phillip Island in Victoria (October 22nd – October 26th).

Multiple-Australian Champion Landen Smales (Noosa Heads, QLD) won his first Australian Logger Title at 12-years-old when the Australian Titles were held on the Tweed Coast back in 2019.

Smales said he was looking forward to the Australian Longboard Titles returning to the region.

“I’m really looking forward to the Aussie Longboard Titles. It’s great to have the event moving to the Tweed Coast, Bundjalung Country this year. There are so many different breaks to choose from. Last year I won the Junior and Open Men’s Logger and I’m keen to compete in the new longboard division with the criteria change this year. The changes suit my surfing and I’ll be trying to lock in a spot in team Australia to compete at Worlds later in the year.”
