The Noosa Festival of Surfing wrapped up today at first point at Noosa Beach, Queensland, Australia.

The week was off the back of a fantastic cyclone swell but unfortunately it didn’t stick around with the conditions deteriorating throughout the week with the girls surfing some very challenging and tiny waves through some of the rounds.

The world’s best long boarders, including Mele Saili, Erin Ashley, Lindsay Steinriede, Honoloua Blomfield and Victoria Vergara, had set to work to find as big a wave as possible early on to pull together manoeuvres that would score and we saw some amazing foot work on some low energy waves.

Byron Bay’s Roisin Carolan took part in the McTavish team in the Team’s challenge who rocked the small conditions and took home a 2nd place to the Foam Symmetry Magazine team.

Roisin says of the event “The Noosa Festival is always awesome no matter the conditions, the level of surfing improves every year and makes everyone push themselves to become better. I was surfed out every day!  I loved my old mal heat, I like surfing against the guys because there’s no hassling. I really enjoyed surfing with It was great to meet and surf with Lindsay Steinriede in a heat, she has such a good style and such a nice person.”

Finals day came good with the swell picking up to over 1 foot and beautiful long point peelers that we love from Noosa. It was perfect conditions for the girls to put on a great show.

In the Junior Women’s division it was Rachael Tilly from the USA who pulled out an amazing combo score of 8.5 and 7.5 to take home the win defeating Lola Mignot and Honoloua Bloomfield in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Rachael said after her win “I held my hang 10s for as long as possible and went for them at any chance I could! When I wasn’t holding the hang ten I just held on to a hang 5 because the wave I chose allowed me to. I also got some turns in the mix to bring is some diversity to help solidify my scores.”

“I’m glad we finally got some waves in the last couple days and there was so much great talent here so it was great to end it with a win.” Said Rachael.
