One Mile Beach pumped with a festival vibe with DJs performing live art and there were plenty of fun beach activities. The Kaos Surf Surfarama is the fourth in a series of six events in the series which consists of a point score that will be kept at each event. This puts surfers in the running to win another lot of prize money if they have the highest point score at the end of the series. Tony Bainbridge of Kaos Surf is the local sponsor for this leg of the Surfarama series. He told News Of The Area, “We bought this event to the local area to give the junior divisions a representative aspect of contest surfing, giving them the experience of pitting themselves against like minded young surfers from outside the region.” He believes that this allows them to build up their experience going into the future. “We became involved so we could take the opportunity to create local for locals which is really important to us at Kaos surf,” he said.
