Surf Sports

What are Surf Sports?

Surf Sports, representing some of the oldest traditions in Surf Life Saving has a long history at Bondi Surf Club. In 1915, the first Australian Surf Titles took place at Bondi Beach. Only two events were recognised at those championships; the open surf race and the open six-person R&R. Bondi won both events. At the 2015 Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, Bondi’s 5-man R&R team won the gold medal, making us the only club to win events at both the first and 100th centenary championships.

Whether you aspire to be a more competent Lifesaver or represent your State or Country, Surf Sports at Bondi has pathways to help you achieve your goals.

We have coaches in all Surf Sports disciplines and hold regular training sessions. We cater for members from age 14 to Masters (30 years and over).
