The GoldCoast Oceanfest, celebrating its tenth year, promises to turn the summer's longest days into the most exciting, adrenaline-fuelled, educational and inspirational weekend of the year.

Beach soccer, footvolley, volleyball, surf aquathon, big boy paddle races, a women's surfing competition, nipper surf life saving and the ironman and diamond lady competitions will leave you breathless and inspired. And first time youngsters get to play too at the famous toe dipper grass roots surf school.

The lifestyle sports events, workshops, toe dippers and demonstrations are designed to encourage the next generation of budding athletes to visualise themselves as the future star names of these lifestyle sports.

Many of those inspired by previous years spent spectating will be on the starting line, or on court for the first match as the winters training is put to the test. This is a call to athletes wishing to compete to get online and enter via the athletes lounge at www.goldcoastoceanfest.co.uk.

Goldcoast Oceanfest takes place on June 20 to June 22.
