The history of the Burleigh Boardiders Single fin Classic is a rich one indeed, just like the History of Burleigh Boardriders, formed in 1965, and going from strength to strength today. The winners and competitors list is a who’s who of surfing with names like Mick Fanning, Jay “Bottle” Thompson, Dave Rastovich, Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew, Gary “Kong” Elkerton, and last years Champion Thomas Woods are some the surfers that have competed in the event over previous years. Antique boards, legends of surfing at one of the world’s best waves ensures that the field of 96 surfers fills up each year.

Billabong have come to the party presenting the 2011 Single Fin Classic, and continuing their long term link with Burleigh Boardriders which started in 1973, with the creation of the brand, and Burleigh continues to be home of the surfwear giant.

There is no prize-money, just prizes of a unique Honolua Single Fin Surfboard and the glory of being crowned champion of the first and one of the most prestigious events of the surfing calender..
