Noosa Festival of Surfing - Day 5


THERE was no shortage of great surfing going on at First Point Noosa with a super clean small swell on Thursday, creating ideal and fun small waves for the amateur divisions at the GSI Noosa Festival of Surfing.

A feature of the Thursday's surfing was the GSI One Design division which this year features the unique new GSI Meyerhoffer designs.

These boards are a radical with an hour glass shape outline, but clearly they are a functional new design, created by Thomas Meyerhoffer who's here at the Noosa Festival of Surf to promote the design.

Waves at Noosa are the perfect testing ground for these boards.

Some finalists along with semi finalists of most of the amateur divisions have been decided and a full spreadsheet of results across all the divisions can be found at www.aspworldtour.com and follow the link to the GSI Noosa Festival of Surfing mini site.
