A crew of old heads from the Lennox Longboard Club have got together with an energetic young crew from the Healthy Minds Club to present this one-day longboarding event at Lennox.
Scheduled for Sunday 19th September at Lennox Main Beach, it’s replacing the former annual Lennox Longboard Classic which was run over two days in early August.
Covering divisions such as Open 9ft, Ladies, Over 40s and Over 60s, and with competitors coming from across the east coast, there’ll be some longboarding moves out there during the rounds reflecting the enormous talent in longboard surfing these days.
The Healthy Minds Club, in summary, is a mental health organisation for men based in the Northern Rivers. They provide their members with a support network of communication and social interaction channels via social media, physical activity and community involvement. They have come on board as a committee for the One Dayer and the Lennox Longboarder Club welcome their enthusiasm and involvement.
Coming on board are a lot of the past sponsors of the Lennox Longboard Classic, along with some new sponsors brought in by the Healthy Minds crew.
The Major Sponsor is Rip Curl and Rip Curl Ballina. Other valued sponsors include MP Mobile Plumbing Lennox, Lennox Surf, Lennox Hotel, Lennox Coffee & Gelato, Inner Beauty Lennox, Herron Todd White, Lennox Beach Resort, Triple X Rashies, Seven Mile Brewery, Amano Surf (New) Cape Byron Distillery (New). Also Huey Wax, Lennox Bakery, Lennox Butcher, Lennox Pizza, Woollam Constructions.
We thank all our sponsors involvement for this inaugural event. Water safety as per the last Lennox Longboard Classics will be covered by the Local Lennox / Alstonville Surf Life Saving Club. Thanks to the surf club for their valued contribution.
We welcome all competitors to come on board and support the One Dayer and have fun in the spirit of longboard surfing.
