The 22nd annual Lennox Longboard Classic 2019 was held over the weekend at Lennox Head main beach with two days of pristine sunshine and clean, solid, set waves on offer.

Over 100 competitors converged over seven age and gender divisions. Competitors travelled from Woolgoolga in the south up to the Gold Coast to the contest hosted by the Lennox Longboarders Club.

The standout heat for the comp was the closely contested Ladies Final with Lee Middleton from Lennox Head taking the win. Other great results for local surfers were: Nathan McKenzie from Lennox Head won the Juniors, Byron Bay’s Peter Hall won the O/65s, and Scott Channon from Lennox Head was third in the Open 9’ division.
