Annual Report


Who we are Australians have embraced the sport and culture of surfing since it first landed on our shores. It is now an iconic part of the Australian coastal lifestyle, with recreational, competitive and professional surfers of every age – boys, girls, men and women – taking to the surf at locations right around our vast coastline. Surfing WA has been the governing body of surfing in this state since 1964. Recognised by the Department of Sport and Recreation as one of Western Australia’s major sporting organisations, it covers all codes of surfing including: shortboarding, longboarding, bodyboarding and stand-up paddleboarding.

What we do

Pr om ot io n

Surfing WA is a member of Surfing Australia and aims to grow surfing both as a mainstream, commercially sustainable sport and an iconic, healthy Australian lifestyle.

Our objectives include encouraging, promoting, advancing and administering the sport of surfing in WA, including regulating and managing competition. Surfing WA is actively involved in all levels of the industry; from developing educational programs and training coaches and judges, to providing pathway initiatives for both young and experienced surfers. We successfully organise and host local, state, national and international events, including one of the world’s largest Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Championship Tour (WCT) events – The Drug Aware Margaret River Pro. Every year, Surfing WA plans new programs and events aimed at benefiting surfers right across the state, reaching over 250,000 Western Australians and millions of people interstate and overseas each year in the process.

Reaching a staggering 3,800km of coastline through our surf schools network, boardriding clubs, events, clinics and other programs – we have seen the growth of regional surfing communities and surfing abilities. Surfing WA actively pursues any initiatives that further the interests of surfing at every level. This includes promoting the health and safety of our members and all others who use our coastline and supporting the preservation and conservation of our aquatic environment.

Chairman’s Report

It is with a strong sense of achievement by our CEO and your Board of Surfing WA that I present our annual report for 2013. Almost since he was re-appointed as our fulltime CEO, Mark Lane has been working consistently, with the full confidence of the Board, on growing the Margaret River Pro into the State’s major international sporting event. With the announcement earlier this year of the event being awarded WCT status by the ASP, from 2014 onwards we will see the annual Drug Aware Margaret River Pro become one of Western Australia’s key international events. As you read through this report you will see many activities undertaken and outcomes achieved, all testimony to the hard work of a small team of professionals and many dedicated members of Surfing WA. Meanwhile, your Board and staff have been working continuously on delivering on Surfing WA’s strategic plan to further strengthen the sport and consolidate our finances to the stage that the debts of the past have been wiped out and our balance sheet is in a very healthy state. This will now allow us to move on to the next major project: new headquarters for Surfing WA. Our strong financial position will also see more resources for our clubs as both organizational and member development at a club level is one of several priorities under the strategic plan. Following the re-structure of the Board under Constitution amendments adopted previously, Roger Goodwin joined the Board as our new SUP 8

nominee and Sam Vanderford moved into the newly created affiliated Club nominated directorship. Then early in 2013, long serving board member Tom Wilson stood down citing the need to spend more time on his business interests as a growing priority. I take this opportunity to record Surfing WA’s appreciation to Tom for his dedicated service on the Board. Tom was replaced by Mike Best, also a keen surfer with a strong business background. Mike has taken on chairing the new Board HQ subcommittee. Other Board members have all taken on various responsibilities during the year or pursued representation of their nominated discipline. Tony Ince has continued as chair of the finance committee and Errol Considine has continued as chair of the Drug Aware Pro management committee. My appreciation is hereby recorded to all board members for their continued dedication, support and time given to the governance of Surfing WA. Appreciation is also recorded to past president Graham Brimage who continues to assist with advice and expertise in the management of the Drug Aware Pro Margaret River and other areas of importance to the development of Surfing in Western Australia. Finally appreciation to our CEO Mark Lane and his staff group without whom none of the results outlined in this annual report would have been achieved. Laney, you continue to inspire us. I just hope we can continue to inspire you. Bob Welch OAM Chairman Annual Report


CEO’s ARTICLE Our past year of achievements both in and out of the water have been enormous and much credit needs to be given to the individuals and teams of people who manufacture these results for and on behalf of Surfing WA. From a business and strategic perspective our results continue to impress. This year marked the final year of the Board’s three-year strategic plan. Ambitious targets were set back in 2010 incorporating various high performance, athlete and coach development targets, governance, revenue and membership growth initiatives, combined with a focus on various events along the competitive pathway.

working with us on ways to improve the safety of our members via an exciting jet-ski campaign. The support of Eventscorp and the WA Government has been instrumental in assisting Surfing WA to secure and elevate our Margaret River event to its current level – their support across a number of platforms has been generous and well received. Clearly, these organizations are working examples of the great things that can be achieved by working in partnership.

Additional partnerships have also been created or enhanced at Local Government level – perhaps none greater than with the Shire of Augusta Margaret The recent signing of a 5-year agreement with River.

In the water, WA surfers have dividends” achieved at the highest level. Ten WA surfers are rated inside the top 50 in the world across the surfing codes, two of those Taj Burrow and Georgia Young are ranked within the top five and additionally Jacob Wilcox became the World U16 Champion earlier in the year. In addition, WA surfers took home a total of five National Titles over the past 12 months. Congratulations to all surfers for these outstanding performances.

The challenge of delivering events and programs to surfers covering 3800km of coastline has never been more evident. With the growth and popularity of the sport still increasing, so too does our obligation to support surfers and create opportunities across the four surfing codes at all levels.

In achieving such outstanding results we have been extremely fortunate to be partnered by some equally outstanding organizations. Healthway, via the SunSmart and Drug Aware messages, continues to support surfing programs that see these important messages delivered to millions of people.

In closing, much praise must be given to the Board of Surfing WA. These professional and highly skilled individuals have consistently offered expertise, advice and hundreds of hours of voluntary time to pursue these above mentioned results. It has been done with a purity that should be applauded. Much thanks to Bob Welch for his leadership and others who sit in additional committees outside of their Board commitments.

The Department of Sport and Recreation continue to support surfing at all levels but in particular their support of individual athletes via scholarships and continued support at regional level have played a vital role in delivering these results.

Finally, our full-time, part-time and casual staff who deliver surfing 363 days of the year, need to be recognized. Their contribution is highly valued. The consistency, passion and professionalism is noted and valued.

Our friends at HIF have been generous in their support of our events program and are currently

Surfing WA Surf School Since 1986 Surfing WA has successfully operated Learn to Surf programs for the WA community. Originally based at Scarborough Beach, the surf school relocated to Trigg Beach in the early nineties in a move that coincided with the venue change for the state headquarters. During the past 27 years of operation, it is estimated that over 500,000 people have been introduced to the sport via a variety of programs on offer, including Learn to Surf weekend and holiday courses, Surf Grom and SUP courses, as well as our intermediate and advanced programs, all based out of Trigg. Intermediate and advanced programs continue to produce young surfers who are great examples of how kids can move quickly through the surfing development pathway with expert coaching, from entry level through to elite.

After-school surf squads and monthly intermediate competitions continue to provide junior surfers with their first taste of what it’s like to compete in an event. The introduction of stand up paddleboard (SUP) lessons has seen hundreds more people participating in and enjoying this hugely popular activity. Further, Surfing WA has continued to expand our reach, delivering programs to over 100 local primary and high schools. This effort, combined with the reach of our other licensed surf schools ensures that regardless of the location, safe and supportive programs are now delivered at over 30 iconic surf beaches state-wide.

BoardRiding Clubs Boardriding Clubs form part of the crucial surfing pathway in Western Australia and are a large part of the coastal communities. They are widely recognised as the grass roots of surfing. A number of new initiatives in 2013 has seen a boost in support and strengthening in the development of our clubs network. A major focus of Surfing WA in 2013 was assisting clubs (particularly in regional WA) to build capacity and drive participation, as well as developing coaches and officials along with broader knowledge bases. The introduction of the Club Grants Program in 2013, which offers clubs a number of services to enhance their capabilities, along with the employment of a part-time Club Development Manager (Mike McMonigal) and the appointment of an Affiliated Club

Representative onto the Board (Sam Vanderford) has allowed Surfing WA to better service and assist the large number of boardriders clubs across WA.

BoardRiding Clubs With a large number of clubs (shortboard, longboard, bodyboard and SUP) spanning from Exmouth to Albany, there has always been a healthy rivalry between them. A number of inter-club events staged throughout the year ensures this passion runs high. Many of the larger, more established clubs contribute to the annual calendar with long-standing events that generate strong community support and a high

level of surfing such as: Yal Mal, Whalebone Classic, Sunshine Surf Festival, Geraldton Winter Classic, Albany Wavefest, Gracetown Grommets and the Margaret River Classic. Club competitions are often the for amature state surfers and the starting point for junior surfers who embark on their competitive careers to hopefully, one day, become the next world champion.

Events - State Series The diverse and exciting range of events offered across the 2013 Surfing WA events calendar sets it apart as one of the busiest in the country with over 30 state, specialty, national and international events held around Western Australia. Throughout the year Surfing WA’s events cater to four different disciplines and run from Geraldton in the North to Denmark in the South. Surfing WA events have travelled along some 1000kms of the WA coastline promoting and exposing the sport to a massive cross section of the WA community.

HIF WA Pro Am Series

(Margaret River, Gerladton, Rottnest Island) The 2013 HIF WA Pro Am Series cemented itself as of one of the best semi-professional event series on offer in the country after being blessed with excellent conditions at each stop of the series. Many of the past, present and future surfing stars of Western Australia reveled in Margaret River, Geraldton and most memorably, Rottnest Island, where the HIF WA Pro Am Series saw the year’s best competition waves go down at Strickland Bay. The return of former ASP World Tour competitor Jake Paterson provided a massive boost for the series as he went on to claim three separate State Titles. Improved media coverage and distribution made this series a hit for surfers and sponsors. Winners of the Open divisions were treated to an all expenses paid trip to compete for WA at the Australian Surfing Festival thanks to HIF.

Travelling right across WA, the state’s best up and coming surfers aged from 10 – 18 years gain an opportunity to compete against their friends in a fun and safe environment. The WA Junior Surfing Titles remain the single most important junior event series held within WA, acting as the sole means of qualification for the pinnacle of junior surfing, the Australian Junior Surfing Titles. As surfing continues to grow in popularity more and more junior surfers are emerging, keen to test their skills against the likes of ISA U16 World Champion Jacob Willcox who has carved out his young career by surfing in these events.
