Single surf ski race – from a floating start, competitors paddle their surf ski around three buoys and return to the finish line. The finish is judged when any part of the surf ski crosses the finish line with the competitor and their paddle all in contact.
Double surf ski race – from a floating start, competitors (two per ski) paddle their ski around three buoys and return to the finish line. The finish is judged when any part of the ski crosses the finish line with both team members and at least one paddle in contact with the ski.
Surf board race – from the beach (standing start) each competitor enters the water with their surf board, paddles around all buoys and returns to the beach. The winner is judged by the first competitor to cross the finish line on their feet and in contact with their board.
Surf Race – dry land start where the swimmers wade and ‘dolphin’ through the waves out to a set of buoys and back to the beach, body surfing the waves to get to the front of the race!
Competitors have the opportunity to travel around the State and Country to attend carnivals.
Carnivals are generally held between December & March in Victoria and the season ends with the Australian Titles in late March.
Every athlete must have a minimum qualification of either a Surf Rescue Certificate (Juniors) or a Bronze Medallion and must meet the patrol hour requirements according to their membership category to compete.
