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.

The 2021 NSW Bodyboard State Titles continued today with some of the state’s most promising bodyboarders attempting to cement themselves a spot into the finals day of competition.

Dee Why’s Moz Abruhosa put on a clinic in the Over-45 Men’s semi-finals, posting a gigantic 18.43 two-wave heat total, the highest of the event so far. Abruhosa performed an eclectic mix of forward and reverse spins on critical sections in the semi to cement his spot into tomorrow’s final.

Kaylah Pisani (Boat Harbour) appeared to be on the lookout for a title, claiming the first of two Open Women’s finals dropping a 6.67. The champion will be crowned tomorrow and determined on the accumulative results across both finals. 

In a similar fashion to the day one action, local competitors John Cruickshank (Belmont) and Jimmy Leayr (Newcastle) put on excellent performances to claim their respective semi-finals and earn their spot into tomorrow’s Open Men’s final where they’ll meet Josh Kirkman (Tuncurry) and Liam Lucas (Maroubra).

All competitors in the event are competing for their opportunity to qualify for the NSW Team which will compete at the Australian Surf Championships later in 2021.

The 2021 NSW Bodyboard State Titles will wrap up with all finals on Sunday, 28 March 2021.

All live scores can be found at liveheats.com

All competitors are advised to ring the event hotline (0458 247 212) by 6.45am on the days of competition to confirm location and running order.
