Australian Longboard Open

Honolua Blomfield


Last week the Australian Longboard Open was held at Kingscliff. This was also an LQS event for our Australian surfers to gain a few more QS points towards their campaign. With very small conditions making this a challenge, all competitors were able to put on a fantastic display of surfing in all divisions throughout the week.

Huge congratulations to our team riders competing, with Honolua Blomfield taking out the Women’s Pro LQS event in a hotly contested final against Tory Gilkerson. Nic Jones taking third in the Men’s Pro division, Kathryn Hughes making it to the Semi’s and Kirra Molnar into round 2 all to pick up a few QS points for their rankings.

Nic Jones also took 1st in the Logger and Kirra 3rd in the Open Women’s 9ft. Check out the website for more details and action shots from the week.
