The 2014 CJ “SNOWY” MCALISTER WINTER SURFING FESTIVAL
The Snowy McAlister festival is returning to Manly Beach, on the June long weekend (June 7th – 9th, 2014). Now in its 27th year, the Annual CJ ‘Snowy’ McAlister Winter Surfing Festival will once again host some of the best mens, womens, and juniors longboarders. The 2014 event will host a “pro-loggers” division, with a sizeable prize pool up for grabs. The official website, Facebook page and Instagram will be updated regularly with all the news as it happens.
The 2013 Snowy McAlister saw some of the best longboard riders of every generation, from Harrison Roach, Matt Chojnacki and Alex Knost in the Pro Log, to juniors Jared Eason, Declan Wyton and Kai Ellice-Flint, to Honolua Bloomfield, Rosie Locke and Roisin Carolan competing in the Womens. This year’s field should see a similarly packed lineup of over 200 national and international competitors.
The ‘Snowy’ McAlister will run over three days and feature the always-popular junior as well as men’s and women’s open and age divisions, plus plenty of off-beach fun throughout the contest. Widely known as the birthplace of Australian surfing, Manly was the location of the first World Surfing Championships held in 1964. As a national surfing reserve with over 100 years of rich surfing heritage, Manly constantly delivers fine waves throughout winter. So get ready for a huge weekend of Surfing action from June 7th – 9th in celebration of the 27th Annual CJ ‘Snowy’ McAlister Winter Surfing Festival.
