CASUARINA/NSW( October 12th/2021): The Irukandjis have selected a strong team of nine to represent Australia at the 2021 Pismo Beach ISA World Para Surfing Championship.
With a seventh-place as their last team finish, The Irukandjis will be looking to better that result with a highly decorated squad including past World Champions Sam Bloom, Mark ‘Mono’ Stewart and Matt Formston.
Given the current challenges regarding international travel, the team is seeking both support and naming rights partners for the 2021 Championship and future campaigns.
National High Performance Director Kate Wilcomes said: “ We are thrilled to be sending such a large and experienced team that is not only decorated but really passionate about representing The Irukandjis on the world stage. The High Performance Team can’t wait to see the team compete and do Australian proud!”
