Surfing NSW – New Chair and Deputy Chair (July 2024)

Surfing NSW today announced the election of Ben Rolleston as its new Chair, and Lyndel Gray as Deputy Chair. This follows the resignation of John O’Neill and Harry Hodge from the Board of Directors after almost 15 years of esteemed service.

Due to the current State of Emergency in NSW, the World Surf League (WSL) and Surfing NSW have made the difficult decision to postpone the Mad Mex Maroubra Pro presented by N G Farah, Qualification Series (QS) 1000 event. 

The three-day Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series event that was due to start tomorrow at Maroubra Beach will be rescheduled with a future date to be confirmed.

World Surf League Tour Manager Ty Sorati said, “The flood disaster in NSW and Queensland has impacted hundreds of thousands of people and devastated many of the coastal communities our competitors live in.

“Our thoughts are with the surfers, their families and the communities who are currently being affected by this disaster.”
