The Byron Bay Surf Festival is stoked to announce it will host the second edition of the McTavish Trim.

The McTavish Trim – Furthest Up The Beach, is a unique surfing event whereby the longest distance surfed is the goal for each of the 12 invited trimmers. Surfboards must be over 10 feet in length, requiring a significant amount of skill and panache to surf.

The event will take place during the always popular freestyle & stoke surf sessions, on the Sunday of the festival, which could not be better this year with the unique addition of the Trim. On this stoke-filled day you’ll also enjoy the classic surf sessions which this year includes, torpedoes (bodysurfing), finless (timber, surfmat or softboards), fish, logs, mermaids (gals only), Tandem and the partywave!

These sessions are non-competitive and are more or less based on artistic interpretation with a decided peer vote for which waverider showed the most pure stoke and freestyling fun on any particular wave during each of the sessions.

Also included on this day is the hunters & collectors show and demo…a mix of modern, collectable, handmade, art-driven and sustainably produced surf craft on show for demo or swapping, from Australian, Japanese, Californian and Hawaiian shapers.

Bring your kids, friends and your board and come enjoy surfing, trimming, live music and so much more at the freestyle & stoke on Sunday 26th of February at Wategos!
