Surfing NSW Origins

Surfing NSW Origins

Since 1963.

Surfing took a step in its maturity in 1963 when Surfing NSW was established to administer the sport.

Since then we have produced a roll call of world champions from Midget Farrelly – who was the founding president of Surfing NSW in 1964, through to multiple world champion title winners including:

• Mark Richards (1979,1980,1981 and 1982)

• Tom Carroll (1983 and 1984)

• Damien Hardman (1987 and 1991)

• Mick Fanning (2007, 2009 and 2013)

• Layne Beachley (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2006)

• Tyler Wright (2016 and 2017)

• Stephanie Gilmore (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2018)

Today our organisation is a leader in a network of aligned surfing organisations spanning Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania. Together we have also formed a national body, Surfing Australia.
