First point at Noosa is pulsing with a super clean small swell today creating ideal and fun small waves for the amateur divisions at the GSI Noosa Festival of Surfing.

A feature of the today’s surfing is the GSI One Design division which this year features the unique new GSI Meyerhoffer designs.

These boards are a radical with an hour glass shape outline, but clearly they are a functional new design, created by Thomas Meyerhoffer (San Francisco/USA)  who is here at the Noosa Festival of Surf to promote the design.

The concept of the design is based around delivering a combination of the very best features of modern longboards along with the performance characteristics of modern shortboards.

With multiple excellent 8 and 9 point rides being posted throughout the early rounds of the one design heats, it’s clear that these boards definitely go!

Today’s waves at Noosa are the perfect testing ground for these boards.

A design display of the boards along with Thomas Meyerhoffer on hand to answer questions  and explain these boards will take place on the deck of the Noosa Surf Club between 12 and 3pm today.

Classic Malibu Men’s Open Amateur heats along with numerous other divisions are also running throughout today with the waves expected to remain clean and perfectly peeling all day!

In surfing, full rotations are relatively rare. However, when performed correctly, they often leave an exclamation mark on the wave. Learn how to pull off the frontside reverse 360.
