ASB MAGAZINE: Surfing Australia has announced its schedule for National Title events in 2019. The SAE Group Australian Surf Championships, Hyundai Australian SUP Titles, the Surf Dive N Ski Australian Junior Surfing Titles and the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles presented by Rip Curl are expected to attract more than 1000 surfers from around the country competing for coveted honours.
Adding to the high stakes is the inclusion of the nudie Australian Adaptive Surfing Titles into the new-look Australian Surf Championships (formerly the Australian Surf Festival) which will be hosted at The Tweed, while Victoria’s Phillip Island will host the Hyundai Australian SUP Titles for the first time.
The Surf Dive N Ski Australian Junior Surfing Titles will again host individual divisions incorporating Under 14, 16 and 18 age groups along with Allstars and MR Shield Schools divisions.
Surfing Victoria will again be hosting the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles presented by Rip Curl. For the seventh consecutive year, the event will be held at the iconic surfing location, Bells Beach at the start of the world-famous Great Ocean Road.
“Surfing Australia is stoked to be able to announce these National Title events and 2019 shapes up as another great year of competition,” said Surfing Australia CEO Chris Mater.
“Winning an Aussie Title is something all Australian surfers aspire to and can open the door to a career on the international stage.”
