NSW Open State Titles 2018

Tue 1st May 2018 – Sun 1st July 2018
Registration Open
Sun 11th March 2018 9:00AM
entries close 31 May 2018

Again in 2018 there will be no NSW Open State Titles Event.

We trialled a model in 2017 whereby Surfing NSW crowned our NSW Open State Male & Female champions and entire team through the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series (2017 WSL QS1000 NSW events) and a Wildcard application process that progressed qualifiers to the  Australian Titles. If one did not compete in the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series 2018 we are offering a wildcard selection process based on past results. We will continue this model for 2018.

This model also allows other surfers who did not compete in the Vissla NSW Pro Surf Series the opportunity to compete at Aussies & also reduces the travel time for surfers with the current amount of NSW events in the state.

Please see the Australian Surf Festival 2018 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 past 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 this model was seen successful for 2017, therefore we have proposed this new model for 2018. This format has also been used successfully by other states to progress surfers into the Australian Titles.
