International Surfing Day - Sydney!
International Surfing Day is a worldwide celebration of the sport of surfing and an opportunity to give back to our coastal environments. This year our National Office will be celebrating ISD at Harbord Diggers RSL Club, with the unveiling of the latest addition to Freshwater Headlands Surfers Walk of Fame by famed sculptor Mick Purdy. Come along and enjoy an entertaining evening of drinks, food, music and film celebrating the sport of surfing and the importance of protecting our oceans, waves and beaches with some of Australia's surfing royalty (including our first ever World Champion Phyllis O'Donell, Simon Anderson, Jack McCoy, Barton Lynch, Layne Beachley, Damien Hardman & Rob Bain).
In December 2012, the Gold Coast Tweed Branch of Surfrider Foundation brought together key Gold Coast surfing stakeholders to discuss the need to include a Surf Management Plan as part of the City of Gold Coast's Ocean Beaches Strategy 2013-2030. The meeting was called in response to a number of issues affecting the surf culture and surf amenity on the Gold Coast and has resulted in the Surf Management Plan Advisory Committee and the development of the Gold Coast's first ever Surf Management Plan for inclusion in City of Gold Coast's Ocean Beaches Strategy 2013-2030.
The Surf Management Plan Advisory Committee to consult with their constituents about the proposed recommendations for the maintenance and enhancement of surfing on the Gold Coast have released a survey. The survey will remain open until 31st July. The results of the survey will be presented by Fieldworx at the SMPAC workshop number 4 in August 2015.
