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 Woolworths NSW Junior State Titles pres by Ocean and Earth at Illawarra will kick off from 17th – 22nd November 2021 with junior surfers from across the state competing for a coveted title in Under-14, Under-16, and Under-18 age divisions.
 
The event is expected to attract approximately 250 promising junior surfers to the Wollongong region.

Prime locations for the event are Sandon Point and Woonona.
 
“It has been a difficult year for surfing events in the latter part of 2021, so it comes as some comfort that we can still crown some junior state champions in the closing months of the year,” said Surfing NSW CEO Luke Madden. “Due to all competitors residing within NSW state borders and having no need to cross borders – as well as developing a thorough COVID safe plan – we feel the Woolworths Junior State Titles pres. by Ocean and Earth is the perfect event to run for our up-and-coming junior talent. We thank Destination Wollongong for their support and we can’t wait to see who will claim a coveted NSW Title at the end of the event.”
 
Seeding for each age division are determined by the Surfing NSW State Rankings.
 
Schedule:
U18’s (Boys & Girls): Thursday 18th – Saturday 20th November 2021
U16’s (Boys & Girls): Wednesday 17th – Saturday 20th November 2021
U14’s (Boys & Girls): Saturday 20th – Monday 22nd November 2021

The event will run in a straight knock-out format, under four-person priority rules. Further information on priority rules can be found in the Surfing Australia Rulebook 2021: surfingnsw.com.au/2021-rule-book/
