Surfing Australia (SA) continues to grow its high performance program and increase its commitment to the athlete pathway. Australia has the current male world champion, while Australian women finished second and third in the 2013 world championship tour. The sport has a sophisticated pathway which is highly likely to continue to produce athletes who will achieve Winning Edge targets.

SA meets the majority of the ASC’s mandatory governance principles and has recently transitioned from an incorporated association to a company limited by guarantee.

SA continues to build the sport’s national junior program, SurfGroms. The Australian Boardriders Battle was launched in 2013 as a strategy to drive engagement with state associations and to provide exclusive benefits to club members. It is anticipated that this type of product offering may also highlight the advantage of club membership to SurfGroms participants.
