Gals on Mals – Yallingup, West Australia – wrap & photos from Mick Marlin

16 March 24


The 4th annual Gals on Mals fun event was held at Yallingup last weekend.

Helped along by the Indian Ocean Longboard Club, over 30 gals hit a beautiful sunny day of head-high and larger waves.

Event organiser Claire Edwards said, “We created an event dedicated to supporting and encouraging young girls and women of all ages and surfing ability, not to compete but to come together and celebrate being a salty sister. 

“We united with flowers in our hair and the biggest smiles, left content and our hearts filled with beautiful memories.

“The feedback from all has been immensely uplifting.”  

The more seasoned older gals ventured out to mainbreak for overhead waves, while the younger less experienced surfed nice little head-high rollers in the cove. 

Indian Ocean Longboard Club contest director Chris Tranthem stated the he’d never seen so many big smiles on dials at the beach at one time before. 

The event was supported by Quicksilver Dunsborough, Beauty Studio Dunsborough, Moonshine Surfboards and Beach Toes.
