2017 Open Shortboard State Titles

Registration Open
Wed 1st February 2017 9:00AM
entries close 02 Feb 2017

This year, there will be no NSW Open State Titles Event. This will be a trial year whereby Surfing NSW are going to crown our NSW Open State Male & Female champions and entire team through the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series (2017 WSL QS1000 NSW events). In order allow other surfers who did not compete in the NSW Pro Surf Series the opportunity to compete at Aussies and reduce the travel time for surfers with the current amount of NSW events in the state.

 

There will also be an application process to progress to the Australian Titles based around other results if you did not qualify through the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series 2017.

 

Please see the Australian Surf Festival 2017 application from below if you did not qualify through the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series:

 

Why this new format?

The reasoning behind this decision is dependent on 2016 low entries into the NSW Open State Titles due to a very high percentage of surfers already travelling to all WSL QS1000 around the same time. Surfing NSW gained feedback from many surfers and key contacts in regards to this decision and therefore we have proposed this new model as a trial for 2017. This format has also been used successfully by other states to progress surfers into the Australian Titles.
