OVER 150 longboard competitors from all over NSW will venture to Port Macquarie as part of the upcoming Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles presented by HIF.
The prestigious four-day event will kick off on Thursday, 22nd June to Sunday, 25th June and crown all NSW Longboard and Logger Champions across Junior, Open and Age divisions.
The results of the Australian Skin Cancer Clinics NSW Longboard Titles presented by HIF will decide the NSW Team for the upcoming Australian Surf Festival in Tweed Heads in August.
“Our region is renowned for its beaches and pristine coastline, and we look forward to again hosting the Longboard Titles this year,” said Port Macquarie-Hastings Deputy Mayor, Lisa Intemann.
“It’s not only our beaches that make our region so unique, and we encourage participants, their families and support crews to extend their stay and experience our magnificent hinterland, extensive culinary delights and cultural experiences.”
As part of the event, the Australian Skin Cancer Clinics will be onsite activating over the course of the competition.
Australian Skin Cancer Clinics CEO Dr Tony Dicker is looking forward to the ASCC educating participants about the importance of being safe in the sun.
“Australian Skin Cancer Clinics (ASCC) is proud to support the NSW Longboard Titles in Bonny Hills as raising community awareness about the need to have regular skin checks is essential.”

“We will have a team of friendly Australian Skin Cancer Clinics personnel on hand at this event to provide advice.”
