About Noosa Festival of Surfing
Now in its 26th year, the Noosa Festival of Surfing has firmly established itself as the leading surf cultural event in the world. It is also the biggest surfing event in the world by competitor numbers (more than 800 entries from 16 counties in 2016).
From humble beginnings the festival has grown into a week or more of fun, thrills and entertainment for surfers and spectators and their families from all over the world. With perfect waves on five point breaks, free movies and live bands plus cold beer and wine at the festival village right on the sand in front of the break, it’s the world’s best surf party.
