Heard of the Noosa Crick’s Jeep Festival? Well, the best part about is the Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational, presented by Vans. On March 15 and 16, the creme of longboarding will be getting freaky for $10k. But, there’s some rules. Five-time world longboard champ and all-round legend, Joel Tudor, the contest’s director, enforces a strict, traditional program: Boards have gotta be single-fin and without leashes.
“As a kid, I started going to Noosa in the early 90’s, and there wasn’t much of a loggin’ scene,” says Joel. “It’s really cool to see the movement that’s going on there now and how its grown. For me, doing this event at Noosa means giving the Australians the stage to highlight their talent.”
This is the seventh event in the Joel Tudor Duct Tape, with past events having been held at Virginia Beach, Montauk, Steamer Lane, Spain, Malibu and Biarritz. A mix of inventive log-riding peppered with good old fashioned nose-riding will make for some eclectic viewing from Harrison Roach, Alex Knost, Robbie Kegel, Tyler Warren, Ryan Burch, James Parry, Dane Peterson, Justin Quintal, Zye Norris, Jared Mell, Matty Chojnacki, Jai Lee, Thomas Bexon, Matt Cuddihy, Troy Elmore and a local wildcard to be announced. If you’re in the area, this’ll be a v good one to watch.
