Kota Kinabalu: The third edition of the Borneo Surf Festival organised by Sabah Surfing Association (SSA) will be held from Dec 17-18 at the Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai in Sepanggar, near here. In the official launch of the event's poster on Wednesday, SSA President Ivan Tan said the two-day event is sponsored by Rip Curl, Happy Plugs and supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia as well as Sabah Tourism Board.

"We are extremely excited to partner Rip Curl again as well as getting strong support from tourism agencies like Motac, Tourism Malaysia and Sabah Tourism Board, and also to have Happy Plugs to be part of Borneo Fest."

He added that the event this year will again see the demonstration by Rip Curl's Pro Surfers from Bali, Indonesia on surfing technique and skills on Sabah water.

He called the public to come and support the event which apart from the competition, will also have many fun and family oriented activities such as the Tamu Pantai Bazaar, featuring locally-made handicrafts and products, as well as a stage to showcase local performers throughout the day.

With the healthy growth and awareness towards the local Sabah surfing scene and internationally fuelled by the recent inclusion of surfing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a larger crowd is expected for this year's event which the association hope to see surfing as a sustainable tourism product and promoting Sabah as a surfing destination.

Meanwhile, further information is available through Shafina Adly at 012-3069977.
