The Leimalo Surf Festival was held on 13 -17 April during the long Easter weekend with over 90 athletes from local surf clubs, New Caledonia and Australia competing for over Vt450,000 in cash prize money.

The event has extended beyond the realm of competitive surfing with Vanuatu Surfing Association (VSA) and Fondation Suzanne Bastien collaborating to kick off the month long Leimalo Art Exhibition commencing on the Surf Festival opening night with artwork oriented around the sea and surf by talented artists, most of whom are surfers.

The VSA has also joined forces with Wan Smol Bag and Vanuatu Society for Disabled People to host the Surfability program on Easter Monday to introduce people with disabilities to the joy and fun of surfing.
