Everyone’s favourite weekend did not disappoint with the 19th annual Burleigh Boardriders Single Fin Festival happening recently on our shores. Some of the country’s top surfers ripped Burleigh Point apart on antique surfboards made before 1981, with thousand on hand to watch. There was a giant teepee, give-aways, live music, artwork and surf culture displays, making it an all generation family fun event.
The music was awesome as well. The Hanlon Brothers grooved Burleigh Point with families staking out the best vantage points to dance to the dubstep rhythms on the Saturday afternoon, and then on Sunday the Babe Rainbow belted out their tunes with special guest, free surfer and Eco-warrior Dave Rastovich on percussion.
The whole weekend was fantastic! All had fun, and everyone is keen for next year. By the way Creed McTagget – a free surfer now residing in Byron Bay – won the Opens, and Burleigh grommet Liam O’Brien won the juniors. Bring the next one we all say!!
