When, what and where?

Yamba's first and only Kombi and surfing culture event is on again for the second year running; this year as the Salty Kombi Show & Shine after a very successful debut at the Surfing the Coldstream Festival in 2016. This year we've got more space, more time and (hopefully) more Kombis!

Show & Shine in Ford Park, Yamba
10am to 12pm on Sunday November 26, 2017

What's the plan?

We had a very successful first run in Yamba last year so this year we're making some improvements and moving to the Yamba River Markets for an awesome morning surrounded by art, food, culture and music in Australia's favourite town.

There'll be more space, more time, and more Kombis for everyone to really show off and admire the dub love!

7am Breakfast

A super delicious breakfast for the Kombi crew at one of our favourite locals. The venue is yet to be decided but we can guarantee it will be yummy!.

9am Kombi Konvoy

Kombi crew will meet 9am sharp in Yamba along Shores Drive to get ready for the Kombi Konvoy through town.

Take in the town as we convoy through the main street and past our local beaches for a sneaky surf check while our professional photographer Jessica Robertson gets some great photos and video along the way.

10am Show & Shine

We'll arrive at the eastern entrance to Ford Park in Yamba around 10am where we have reserved parking with plenty of space to set up and show off the Kombi love.

Mingle with fellow enthusiasts in a very cool, relaxed market full of great food, arts, culture and treasures while the locals cast their votes for their crowd favourite.

12pm Rolling Out

The official Salty Kombi Show & Shine event will finish up at 12pm, we'll be packing up after the prizes are announced and rolling out convoy style down to harwood for lunch.

12:30pm Lunch at Harwood Hotel

Lunch at the Harwood Hotel on the Clarence River which is well known for it's fantastic meals and relaxing river views.

2pm The End

The end of a fantastic Yamba day out with the locals and the Kombis we love. There'll be plenty of time to head back into Yamba for a surf, swim, sunbake or more tucker before the drive home. Thank you!

Join the crew

We are asking a $5 entry fee per Kombi to help cover the cost of insurance and prizes. Any profits will be handed over to Live Prawn Productions who are the not-for-profit operators of the local markets and community events, and help make things like this possible.
