Due to subsequent restrictions across the country associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak, Surfing Australia wishes to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Hydralyte Sports Australian Surf Championships in Port Macquarie. 

Surfing Australia has worked through key timelines to make an informed decision regarding running, postponing or cancelling the 2021 Hydralyte Sports Australian Surf Championships. After considering all possibilities with the consultation of key staff at Surfing Australia and State branches, unfortunately, there were too many uncertainties to run this national event due to the border restrictions associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak.

All competitors are advised to consult with their State branch regarding the appropriate next steps. 

Surfing Australia aims to bring back the Australian Surf Championships bigger and better in 2022. 

Surfing Australia wishes to thank the continued support of our sponsors and key stakeholders including the NSW Government, Hydralyte Sports, Reflections Holiday Parks, Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, the Australian Institute of Sport, 2XP, NBN Television,, Surfing Australia and Surfing NSW.
