Take a look behind the scenes at the Newcastle Surfest competition!
The judging room houses 7 judges (3 Aussies and 4 internationals) that are hard at work, watching every move.
The announcement room was a bit like a party, where the commentators are laughing their way through the afternoon, and keeping the crowd up to date.
The production van holds 5 team members that are busily creating a live stream of the competition that is broad casted across the globe. I found this room the most interesting, because there was just so much going on at once that I could hardly take it all in. How do they do it?
The mens finals are taking place as I type, and I’m excited to see who wins!
