Boardrider Clubs

Surfing Australia in conjunction with our State Associations recognise club surfing as the grassroots of Australian surfing. Our purpose is to support our Boardriders Clubs to enable them to lead and develop their members, strengthening the foundation of the surfing pathway. Club competitions teach the skills required to pursue a competitive career and introduce surfers to the benefits of the support and friendship offered by club environment.

The Surfing Australia Boardriders club system is supported by SportAUS and is recognised as the most advanced in the surfing world and is a vital link in the sport development pathway. We are committed to working with the states and the clubs to ensure that the sport of surfing continues to go from strength to strength and maintains its status as a truly iconic Australian pastime.

Surfing Australia has currently 215 Club and over 120 Surf Schools in our network.

It has been identified that most clubs and schools utilise local sponsorships as the main revenue source to keep the club financial.

We have formulated a sponsorship sales kit that any club member can utilise in an approach to local businesses asking for support for your club.

We have formed a partnership with Kudo Custom a high-quality surf wear and merchandise manufacturer which is Australian owned and operated from Australia and the Philippines.

The variety and quality of Surf wear and merchandise we now have available to offer our Clubs and Schools is diverse and completely tailored to the Australian Surfing market.
