NSW Dept of Sport and Recreation Gets Involved in the Australian Longboard Surfing Open

The Australian Longboard Surfing Open is one of Australia’s most prestigious surfing events and it gathers some of the greatest riders in the world and a huge audience. Since this event is a trademark for the NSW region, the NSW Dept of Sport and Recreation has decided to get involved in the competition.

This is great news for the Australian Longboard Surfing Open officials, as the NSW Dept of Sport and Recreation can provide enhanced support and promotion for the competition and draw some major sponsors.

Sean McKeown, Event Manager, stated: "It's been a great start to the new year for professional longboarding here in Australia. It's great to have the NSW Department of Sport and Rec supporting the new Australian Longboard Surfing Open. Plus we've received a major boost for the event from a locally grown business Green Aussie Cleaner ® taking up the naming rights to make the ASP Longboard Qualifying Series a 3-Star event. "

Australian Longboard Surfing Open features men's and women's ASP LQS divisions with $20,000 cash prizes. It also hosts SUP races, Retro boards, coaching clinics and a Noserider Specialty event. Apart from competitions, the participants and the audience can attend movies, shows, bikini parades and other entertaining activities.
