Surf Boat Rowing
Our Surf Boat crews race in local, state, national and world competitions. Our Women’s Masters crew ‘The Antiques’ won all of these events in 2015, making it the 5th gold medal in a row at the Australian titles and achieved a gold medal at the World Championships in 2016 and World Masters in 2017. Our U23 Men’s crew also won the World Championships in 2016, the pinnacle of a very successful year of rowing for ‘The Pinkies’.
Avalon Beach rowers have won numerous state and national titles over the years and in 2018 our first ever Female Surf Boat gold medal was won by the U19 crew ‘The Chanels’ in the inaugural U19 Female final at the Australian titles in WA and joined by ‘The Bandits’ winning gold in the Reserve Female final.
2017/18 season has been our most successful on record.
We thank our Surf Boat sponsors, Active Tree Services, Voss Store, Crossfit Avalon Beach, Eco Downunder and Coca-Cola and our IRB Sponsor, Avalon Beach RSL Club, for their valuable support.
Thank you also to Reilly & Sons Food Services for funding the entry fee for our women’s boat crew to row for Avoca Beach for the duration of the Ocean Thunder 2018/19 series which concludes on 2 February 2019.
