Victorian Surfers get chance to strike it rich as part of the HIF Clip of the Season

Torquay, VIC/AUS (Thursday 1st June, 2017): Surfers from Victoria will once again get the chance to win big as part of the 2017 HIF Clip of the Season online competition.


The Clip of the Season will be open to surfers in Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland across surfing, longboarding, bodyboarding and stand up paddle boarding. Entrants are required to submit a short clip of a wave being ridden at some time during the 2017 winter season.


At the end of the winter period, the top two entries as selected by state judging panels will progress to a national final, with the overall winner and runner up to be decided by a public vote. The national competition prize pool totals $8,000, an attractive driver for both aspiring and established surfers and filmers funding their passion for surfing. 


Surfing Victoria CEO, Adam Robertson, can’t wait to see some great surfing from every area of the Victorian Coastline.


“The HIF Clip of the Season is a great way for all surfers in Victoria to show their talents at their home break and have the chance to win some cash.”


“It doesn’t matter what type of board you ride or where you live in Victoria, the only thing required is yourself and a mate to film.”


“A big thank you must go to HIF Australia who have been supporters of this event the past three years and continue to help it grow each year!”


Last years National Winner filmer Belinda Le Grice (Western Australia) encourages all surfers to get involved this year.


“I spent my winnings on a Surf Coaching trip to Lombok with a friend for a week in April. We had a blast, great waves, met some great people and learnt heaps, and the best part, someone else was behind the lens!”


“There’s nothing to lose except maybe some time out of the water videoing someone else, but I find it pretty fun watching friends and family surf, especially with some of the great waves we have here in WA”


To enter all you have to do is send in a clip of a surfer riding a wave in Victoria during the winter season (June 1st to August 31st) to


You can be a pro, an amateur, a grommet or a veteran, all we need to see is you riding the best wave this winter on your preferred craft!
