NSW Junior Surfing Titles

Over 250 of the state’s best junior surfers and their families will converge on Port Macquarie this week to battle it out for the NSW State Junior Surfing Titles.

The seven-day event will run from Friday 14th to Thursday 20th July and visit many of our beautiful beaches including Town Beach, Flynns Beach, Light House Beach, Rainbow Beach (Bonny Hills) and North Haven Beach.

With Junior Short Board Titles, High School State Titles and Kneeboard Titles all up for grabs, there’s sure to be plenty of wave catching action on display, so get out and drop into some junior surfing over the coming week.

We wish all competitors the best of luck and hope the swell lines up perfectly for the duration of the festival.
