MANLY FESTIVAL OF SURFING This festival has come about after 5 years of talking, negotiating and getting people excited about the idea. Until now Manly has had the annual Jazz Festival and the famous Food and Wine Festival... and now it's time to acknowledge Manly as being one of the most famous beach villages on the planet! Surfing and Surf Culture is an integral part of this beach-side suburb... and this Festival is a way of celebrating and sharing this lifestyle with those who surf and those who don't. The Manly Festival of Surfing encompasses entertaining events both on and off beach, for every skill level from beginners to pros, men and women, boys and girls, young and old. Manly with its beautiful beaches is a great spot to not only participate but admire this pastime and sport. It is all about pure enjoyment! Global Surf Industries is the presenting sponsor of this event. Their company mantra is 'Life is better when you surf' I am sure you will see this mantra personified many times over during the Festival. Get along and enjoy the inaugural Manly Festival of Surfing with 4 days of exciting activities. Included in these are -- Night Surfing -- The beach will be open at night for all to surf, then it will be over to the experts for a surfing EXPRESSION SESSION.
