Due to the rapidly shifting COVID-19 pandemic and the current public health order in NSW, Surfing NSW has made the hard decision to cancel or postpone all of October’s events until a later in 2021.

After consultation with all event stakeholders, local councils, Office or Sport and NSW Sport, the following events will be impacted: 

October Events 
Woolworths Surfer Grom Comp // Northern Beaches 9-10 October (postponed)
The event will be moved to 11th -12th December 2021. 

Havaianas NSW Grommet State Titles  // 22-25 October (cancelled)
The Under-14’s division from the Havaianas NSW Grommet State Titles, will move to the Woolworths NSW Junior State Titles at Illawarra and form a part of the event schedule. Unfortunately, the Havaianas NSW Grommets State Titles event has had to be cancelled as there are no further available dates at Maroubra to run the competition in line with our entire NSW calendar of events. We look forward to bringing back this event in 2022. The Under-12’s divisions are encouraged to enter the Woolworths Surfer Grom Comp Series at either Coffs Harbour, Kiama, Cronulla and Northern Beaches. 

Woolworths NSW Junior State Titles presented by Ocean and Earth (postponed) 
This event will be postponed to a later date in 2021 in Illawarra. This date is to be confirmed upon our next events update on October 6th. The following divisions U14’s, U16’s, U18’s will all compete in this event in a revised straight knock-out format.  If the Australian Junior Surfing Titles is cancelled, Surfing NSW will still aim to hold the NSW junior state titles for U18, U16 and U14 divisions in 2021 regardless (pending COVID-19 restrictions and timeframes at the time). 

NSW High School State Titles at Illawarra (cancelled) 
Due to the limited time available and return to school sport uncertainty, unfortunately, the NSW High School State Surfing Titles won’t run for 2021. If the Australian High School Surfing Titles runs for 2021 Surfing NSW will determine a selection process in the near future. This selection process will be confirmed (if required) on October 6th aligned to the next events update. 

Volkswagen Tradies Surfmasters (cancelled)
The Volkswagen Tradies Surfmasters event has been unfortunately cancelled as there are no further dates available in 2021 in line with our entire NSW calendar of events. We look forward to bringing back this event in 2022. 

Aloha Manly Junior Teams Event pres. by Hurley // Manly, 28 – 29 September (postponed)
The event will be moved to 4-5 December 2021. 

The highest priority is the health and safety of all competitors and their families, staff, and event partners, as well as the local community with all event decisions being made. 

We will be offering full refunds for those who are affected by the current COVID-19 situation or cannot attend the rescheduled date, however, it is important to note that competitors will lose their spot once a refund has been processed. If they decide to enter the event again at a later date, they will be at the end of the waitlist if it is full. 

Surfing NSW is monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and will provide all competitors with changes as they come to hand. 

The next events update and confirmation of new dates for the Woolworths NSW Junior State Titles will be on Wednesday the 6th of October 2021. We will email, post on socials and our website. 

If you would like to process a refund or have a query please email events@surfingnsw.com.au
