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 team at Surfing NSW have shut up shop on Friday 17 December and back in action at Surf HQ on Tuesday 4 January, so if you haven’t already sorted your insurance and coaching accreditations for you and your team the clock is running down!!!!

Our Education chief Adam Semo will have a few days this week to assist on last minute things 🙂

A big congrats to Brenda Miley from Lets Go Surfing who at the recent Surfing NSW AGM was awarded Life Membership and this week received the Inaugural Aloha Award in memory of John Shimooka, both prestigious awards and well deserved. Brenda has 30 years heavily involved at Club and Regional level in surfing as well as one of the pioneer’s of the surf school industry, she has plenty of skin in the game.
