We have started a surf club!

Surf Club is a social surfing competition held once every two months in the Byron area. It is very much a friendly club, everyone is welcome to come along to the beach and surf! Surf Club is based at Signals, Belongil, usually kicking off from 7am. However the location may move- we will confirm location via sms and instagram before 7am. Please show up at 7am if you want to surf and keep an eye on the heat draw board as all competitors will be judging a heat prior to theirs. 

Each comp is followed by a low key BBQ/preso with beer and food for members. 

Surf club will also include one major event per year with prize money and international competitors. We will also be doing gold coin donations at each event’s BBQ to help raise money for Dune Care, to help restore dunes around Byron Bay.
