Yallingup Malibu Classic

Saturday, 2nd December 2023 - Sunday, 3rd December 2023


Margaret River might have the Pro, but Yallingup is home to the Yallingup Malibu-Longboard Classic.

Established in 1985 by a bunch of local surfers for a bit of fun, Yal-Mal is now in its 37th year and WA’s premier longboarding contest.

Spread over two days, this iconic surf event provides an opportunity to watch the State’s finest long-board riders compete in junior, women, men and team divisions.

Spectating is free.
