It's on again...
Primitive Surf's Postcode Challenge is on again at Sunrise Beach, Noosa. It will be held on 18-19th May and with over $10,000 worth of prizes up for grabs it looks to be another great weekend of fun with mates and a little bit of friendly rivalry. No matter what your skill level we recon give it a go cause it's heaps of fun and who doesn't love a couple of days at the beach.
Deciding who's the best surfer in Brisbane!
Primitive Surf's Postcode Challenge is a unique event held on the Sunshine Coast. Why is it unique? It is an annual surfing competition that decides who the best surfer living in Brisbane is. Because only people living in Brisbane and surrounding areas are aloud to enter, giving them a fairer chance in a fairer competition. It was always hard for city surfers who wanted to have a go at a few competition, immediately they were disadvantaged only really able to surf on weekends and often traveling about an hour each way... and because Primitive Surf is a Brisbane Surf Shop we thought, let's look after our own people, ones in the same situation... and now we have the Postcode Challenge.
In order to qualify for the PCC all you have to do is prove that you have a Brisbane address (somewhere between Caboolture and Beenleigh, excluding the Islands) by either providing a driver's license or some other proof of address.
The event takes place somewhere within the Noosa Shire, with the preferred location being the fun peaks of Sunrise Beach. As the Noosa boardriders take care of all the judging, the event is mobile and depending on conditions can be moved as far north as the Noosa Rivermouth.
In it's seventh year this year the Postcode Challenge has become somewhat of an institution. With regulars turning up every year and more and more newcomers joining the throng, let's face it, it's a great weekend... and you won't get called a Brisso in this crowd.
The event is held over two days with the Opens and Juniors first heats starting on the Saturday and on the Sunday all of the other divisions are run and won including the Opens, Mens 35s, 45s and 55s, Womens and Juniors (Under 20s).
In the past we've had some great special guests like Billabong Free-surfer Wade Goodall and World Champion Mark Occhilupo who surfed in a charity event for the "Christian Surfers" who support us every year with great food and drinks right on the beach (Best breaky burgers ever).
In the last three years we have had over $10,000 worth of prizes including a Week for 2 at Aganoa Beach Resort, Savaii Samoa care of World Surfaris. Our event is supported by some big names in the surf industry like World Surfaris, Quiksilver, Von Zipper, Billabong, Nixon, FCS, Futures, Dakine, Creatures, Otis and Xcel. Peter Gordon Jewellery also support us with the Men's and Women's championship rings.
The two days are also videoed and photographed to capture all the action... you never know you might even make it to the Primitive Surf's website.
In the end it really is a great couple of days hanging with like minded people having a good time, a couple of laughs and hopefully plenty of waves.
We hope to see you this year from all the team at Primo!
