From the 1st to 9th of March, Australia’s top wavesailors and local stand up paddle surfers will descend on Phillip Island for the 2014 Wind & Surf Festival. This event hosts the 2014 Australian Wavesailing Titles, as well as the first Phillip Island SUP Classic surfing competition, and will be held at some of Victoria’s best beaches.
The Phillip Island Wind and Surf Festival will see the return of the Australian Wavesailing Titles to Victorian waters for the first time in nearly 15 years. The event is a great opportunity for the Victorian wavesailing community to show off in national level competition, with other competitors travelling from around the country to test themselves against Australia's best.
Phillip Island is one of Australia’s premiere destinations for all water sports – be it surfing, windsurfing or stand up paddle surfing. The event is lucky to have access to Phillip Island’s best beaches, including Woolamai, Surfies Point, Right Point and Flynn’s Reef. The event is mobile between these locations, ensuring that competition is run in the best possible conditions and likely to give competitors a variety of reef and beach breaks.
We are excited to announce that aerial photographer Col Leonhardt (windsurfaustralia.com) and local sports photographer Jodi Stevenson (whitecapsphotography.com) will providing media coverage of the event. Col will be capturing stunning aerial images of windsurfing at Phillip Island for the first time. Together with Col, we will be producing an online movie of the event to showcase all of the great action at Phillip Island. Stay tuned for more!
The wavesailing will include divisions for all levels of competitors, including Open, Womens, Juniors, Masters and Amateur. The Open Division will feature the country’s best riders competing for the Australian Championship Title in epic conditions. Womens, Juniors and Masters divisions will offer Australia’s best talents a great opportunity to show off their wavesailing skills. The Amateur division will concentrate on getting everyone involved in a friendly competition.
On the weekend of 8th and 9th March, the event will also host the Phillip Island SUP Classic. The SUP surfing event will also take advantage of the opportunity to find the best possible conditions around Phillip Island and give competitors in Open, Womens, Juniors and Masters divisions great waves and action packed heats.
