Supported by:



Recognising the grass roots surfing / Uniting Board Riding clubs / Promoting Junior Programs / Support Male & Female Equality

Snapper Rocks and D-Bah have been selected as the perfect locations for the event this year, with the final location to be determined based on conditions. The event will coexist with normal public activities on the day.

The purpose of the event is to recognise the grass roots of club surfing and to unite our board riding clubs. We aim to encourage and support the clubs by promoting junior programs and support male/female equality.

The event will provide the opportunity for our young surfers to compete after a long period of absence due to the COVID crisis.

Surfers will compete against each other as individuals and at a club level. Individuals will also be awarded throughout the event where creative talent is spotted.
