Surfest 2017 in Newcastle, Australia features the Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota Pro (Men’s WSL QS 6000). The Women’s Pro (Women’s WSL QS 6000) sponsor will again be selected from the businesses who support Surfest women’s crowdfunding. There will be eight supporting events in 2017. Surfest is made possible with the support of the NSW government through Destination NSW, Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota and Newcastle City Council.  Surfest Newcastle, Australia is conducted over 16 days from February 11-26 at Merewether beach, a recognised Australian National Surfing Reserve. Merewether is home to festival patron and Australia’s most accomplished men’s world professional surfing champion, four-time world champion Mark Richards (1979-82).  Mark presents the winner a trophy in his likeness.  2017 marks the festival’s 32nd year and with over 800 national and international competitors, Surfest is the largest festival of surfing in the southern hemisphere.
