Kate Allman filled in for Tracks Editor Luke Kennedy to host a live podcast (listen/watch above) at Kingscliff beach for the Seas The Day Festival. This past Saturday, Kate spoke with Layne Beachley live from the event about the importance of the surf festival, the growth in women’s surfing, the surf icon’s illustrious career, plus much more good-bantered fun.

Overall, Surfing Australia’s inaugural Seas The Day women’s surf festival was a huge success. About 12,000 people attended the event over two-days and more than 200 women and young girls hit the waves making Seas the Day the world’s biggest female participation surf event. Highlights of the weekend included an excellent 9.0 ride from 2005 World Champion Chelsea Hedges and a stellar performance from 1993 World Champion Pauline Menczer, who led her team to victory in the Celebrity Surf Challenge against 7x World Champion Layne Beachley, TV celebrities and Gold Coast Suns AFLW players. The event organisers plan to run the event annually.

Check out some highlights from the weekend in the clip below.
