The 2019 SUP State Titles saw its four final state champions crowned on Tuesday as the 2019 Port Stephens Surf Festival came to a climactic finish in one-foot surf. 

2018 NSW SUP State Titleholder Kai Bates from Mollymook claimed his second title in as many years taking out the Open Men’s division. The south coast natural-footer put on a dynamic performance in the final, locking in a 15.1 two-wave heat total to get the nod.
