About Surf Sports
Surf Sports is an integral part of our Club culture and all of our members have the opportunity to compete in carnivals at a local, branch, state, national or even world level. Many of our Lifesavers compete so that they can maintain and improve their surf skills and fitness whilst simultaneously gaining recognition for their sporting achievements.
There is a range of events in which members can compete, including sand events (beach sprinting, flags) and water events (swimming, board, skis, surf boats and IRB racing) and first aid events (champion lifesaver, first aid and patrol competition).
Our Surf Sports teams are always on the lookout for fresh, enthusiastic new members who are willing to challenge themselves, have a great time and dedicate themselves to an exciting new sport. A prerequisite is your Bronze Medallion, however no pre-existing skills are required – we will teach you everything you need to know.
If you’d like to know more about joining a team, the training required and the benefits derived from carnival participation, visit our Club Lounge during opening hours (the boaties run the bar every Friday and Sunday) or email Director of Surf Sports at [email protected]
Our Surf Boat crews race in local, state, national and world competitions. Our women’s masters crew won all of these events in 2015, making it the 5th gold medal in a row at the Australian titles. In 2014 our under 23 crew won the state titles and came 4th in the Australian titles and this year (2016) have been selected for NSW Surfboat Interstate Team and the Australian development squad. Avalon Beach rowers have won numerous state and national titles over the years including winning the Open Men’s titles in 1993.
We thank our Surf Boat sponsors, Crossfit Avalon Beach, Eco Downunder and Coca-Cola and our IRB Sponsor, Avalon Beach RSL Club, for their valuable support.
