Intro & Welcome
We’re counting down to the start of Season at the end of this month – all of the Club teams are working hard to get ready.
In this edition of The Surfer there are quite a few key dates for pre-season information sessions and proficiencies. Next edition will be out for the start of the 2018-19 Season, with a full program back up and running.
In the meantime, don’t miss your chance to sign up, train up, and gear up for our next summer on the world’s greatest beach.
