Surfing Australia National Open Surfing Team Selection Policy:

The Selection Policy for the National Open Surfing Team has been repealed for the event to be held in 2018.

Under the previous policy, results of the Australian Championships would have determined selection in the open men’s and women’s teams.

A new Selection Policy will be in place for the 2018 team and the results of the Australian Championship in 2017 may or may not be the criteria for selection for the team in 2018. Surfing Australia wishes to make all competitors in the Australian Championships 2017 aware of this change in Selection Policy for the National Open Surfing Team in 2018.

The change has been brought about by issues surrounding qualification and eligibility for the Olympics. Surfing Australia is still awaiting further advice from the AOC and ISA as to qualification and eligibility so that it can determine the Olympic Selection Policy and indeed the National Open Surfing Selection Policy for 2018. Once Surfing Australia has received this advice, it will move as quickly as possible to issue the Selection Policies.

No selection of the Olympic Team or the Australian Open Team will then be made until such time as Selection Policies have been determined and published.


Note: Entry fee includes the compulsory uniform as well as your division. All team members must be a current member of Surfing NSW to participate in this event.

A copy of your Birth Certificate, current Australian passport or Citizenship Certificate MUST be forwarded to Surfing NSW. Email:

If these documents are not supplied, you will be ineligible to compete.

All ASF competitors must be holders of or eligible to hold an Australian Passport.

No refunds will be given within 14 days of event start. Any refund prior this will incur a $10.00 admin fee.
