High Performance

Surfing Western Australia (SWA) is committed to providing the best platform for Western Australian surfers and coaches to achieve their goals at all levels of surfing. The Surfing WA High Performance (HP) program brings together the states most experienced and accomplished coaches and practitioners to guide Western Australian surfing talent.

With funding support from the Department of Sport & Rec and considerable contributions from SWA, West Australian surfers can be confident that every effort will be made to invest in the success of their surfing future.

Our priority is to ensure opportunities are continually presented to surfers and coaches to develop their respective skills and maintain a clear and effective pathway to take these skills to the next level.

This means funding at a state level supported by key stake holders and incorporating the SWA strategic plan to develop a comprehensive state high performance strategy and direction.

Project objectives:

  • To improve performance achievements of coaches and athletes at Regional, State Championships, Australian Titles and ISA/ASP World Surfing Championship Events.
  • To increase qualifications and experience of regional / state level coaches.
  • To increase opportunities to network with national & international level Pro surfers/coaches/officials.
