Winners were grinners at the 21st annual MP Lennox Longboard Classic held over the weekend at Lennox Head.
Small but clean waves were on offer on the first day of the event offering very contestable conditions for all the surfers to enjoy but then on finals day the swell really came to the party by doubling in size, giving competitors ideal longboarding waves to display their skills and style.
One hundred surfers entered over eight age and gender divisions coming mostly from Queensland and NSW.
One of the standout surfing rounds was the Old Mal/Loggers semifinal on Sunday with some classic old-style log riding and nose-riding displays wowing the crowd.
Lennox Head surfers used their local knowledge to great effect, taking out the premier men’s and women’s divisions.
The open 9-foot final was loaded with talent displaying exceptional performances in a very close contest. Eventual winner Scott Channon from Lennox Head took the title for the second year in a row.
Lennox Head’s Eleanor Robertson also backed up her 2017 victory with a repeat win in the lady’s final.
Lennox Longboarders Club spokesperson Wayne Booth thanked local sponsors inlcuding Mobile Plumbing Services Lennox.
Money raised at the event go to charities including the NSW Cancer Council, Westpac Helicopter and Surfing for the Disabled Association.
