Yallingup is an iconic location in the Western Australian surfing history. First surfed around the late 50’s it has always been considered a challenging wave with power to rival many surf locations around the world. And yet, the lagoon always seems to have that peacefulness, sheltered from the raging waves. The grassed area at the top of the stairs under the Melaleuca trees also provides welcome respite from the harshness of
the sand and sun. It is no wonder surfers have held this magic place dear to their hearts.
Longboards have always played a part in Yallingup’s history.  The wave’s long faces and an almond- eye tube are ideal for long drawn drop knee turns on a Malibu. Around 1985 a bunch of local surfers decided to hold a Competition to get together and have a bit of fun. 25 years on the event has become one of the premier longboarding contests on the calendar. The Yallingup Malibu Classic was born.  The Indian Ocean Longboard Club are now the custodians for keeping that history of the event alive each year. Together with a dedicated team of helpers the event springs to life early December and manages to capture that magic feeling of getting together and having some fun in the surf.
