Surfing legend Bob McTavish will launch the festival, as Father Bruce blesses the water and welcomes surfers from around the world.

Listen to some live soulful tunes, hear a little about surfing history and then make your way to the water for the official paddle out.

Everyone is welcome for the spiritual holding of hands and combining of breach breaks from around the world.

Finish off by getting into the groove with a party wave back to the beach, followed by an open surf session to celebrate over 100 years of surfing in Manly!
