Surfest organiser Warren Smith said, “The Surfest Trials each year are a very important event for male and female surfers who are trying to make their mark on the WSL World Qualifying Tour. Past winners of the Trials have always surfed exceptionally well in the main events, at times surpassing their wildest expectations.”
Thanks to Maitland and Port Stephens Toyota, who are a long time sponsor and supporter of this event, the 2018 Trials are expected to include a very high calibre of both male and female professional and emerging surfers.
