The 2011 Mooloolaba Havaianas Thong Challenge

FOR the second year in a row, dangerous conditions have forced the cancellation of the Havaianas inflatable thong Australia Day challenge at Mooloolaba Beach.

Havaianas have been working closely with the Mooloolaba Surf Lifesaving Club monitoring the weather and water conditions, however due to dangerous cyclonic conditions predicted for South East Queensland the decision was made with the safety of participants in mind

Havaianas will ensure that all pre-registered Thong Challenge participants will still receive their giant inflatable Havaianas, offering two collection options:

  • Collection from the Mooloolaba Surf Lifesaving Club (club carpark) on Australia Day (January 26th) between 8.00am and 2.00pm (please note this will not be inflated for safety reasons).
  • Postal delivery: please email Ticketmaster on customer.help@ticketmaster.com.au with your account number and address by 5pm on Friday February 1.

Havaianas giveaways and Vitamin Water sampling will be available to those who come down to the Surf Club on Australia Day.

$10.00 from every registration will still be donated to the Mooloolaba Nippers.

Havaianas apologises for the cancellation of the event, but remains 100% committed to the safety of participants at all times.
