The Global Surf Industries Noosa Festival of Surfing started yesterday Monday March 3rd. Prior to the opening ceremony, surfing legends Hayden Kenny and Bob McTavish had their foot prints set in concrete as the first inductees if the Noosa Walk of Fame.
The opening ceremony features a ceremonial Hawaiian mixing of the waters and a paddle out lead by Hawaiian waterman Brian Keaulana. With over a hundred people participating in the paddle out it was quite a spectacle. A crowd of over 400 people were on the beach to watch the opening ceremony.
