The Kombis are coming

The fifth annual Alexandra Headland Rotary Surf Show and Shine event is happening again this year with plenty of classic vans and entertainment expected across the two-day event.

Rotary Club of Alexandra Headland secretary John Malloy says the popular Kombi and surfboard show will look a little different this year at a new location and under a COVID-safe plan, but he is looking forward to a big turnout none the less.

“We have previously held the event on the Mooloolaba school oval, but this year Sunshine Coast Council have given us the beach car park, which is a fantastic location,” Mr Malloy says.

“And it’s on school holidays so hoping for a big turn-out to celebrate the Sunshine Coast while fundraising for the community.”

This year’s event beneficiaries are Salty Souls, The Board Meeting and Care Outreach.

Hoping to make history, on Saturday, September 26, close to 100 Kombis will travel along the beachfront.

“This year, we are going to attempt the largest Kombi parade ever held on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Malloy says. “We’re going to take them around Mooloolaba, Cotton Tree and Alex Headland.”

On Sunday, the Mooloolaba Beach car park will be full of Kombis, vintage surfboards, musicians, artists and street vendors.

“The North Shore Boardriders will have their fantastic vintage surfboards on display, including some never seen before.

“The Kombis will be competing for the best renovation, and the people’s choice, and we’ll have a celebrity judge from Cricks Volkswagen to make the call.

“There will also be two display Kombis on show from a Sunshine Coast collector that will create a lot of interest.”

There will be activities for children and entertainment from bands, including Tay Oskee and Siena school big band.

Surf artist Owen Cavanagh will also be creating an artwork display at the old amenities building.
