16-17 March Competition & Sleep Over Cancelled

The Executive Committee were given approval for our 2019 calendar by the NPWS this week (better late then never) and we regret to inform members (especially our Juniors) that the NPWS have deemed the Garie Surf Safety Centre "unsafe" for the annual sleep over.

On top of this the weather looks ugly...

Next Competition 6-7 April 2019.


Clean-Up Australia Day & 2nd Competition this Sunday

Hi all,

Our 2nd Competition is on this Sunday and the conditions are looking good 3-5 foot off-shore early.

Registration is from 6:30am.  First heat in the water at 7am.

Current and Past members all welcome to join us of Clean-Up Australia Day as well as the 10am BBQ & Photoshoot.

Please wear a recent club T-shirt for our 10am photo shoot.

Registration for Clean-Up starts at 7am and club photo with our local member LEE EVANS MP is at 10am sharp.

The BBQ will be fired up for 10am.



Our NSW Government Sports Grant (special thanks to LEE EVANS MP)  has been put to good use. The 4 new "Beachwheels Australia" beach carts have arrived and will come in handy bringing the rubbish bags back from the northern end of the beach on Clean-Up Australia Day.

Special thanks also to Beachwheels Australia for looking after Garie Boardriders again this year.

These new beach carts are a big improvement on the current cart that has seen better days.
