High Performance

Surfing Western Australia (SWA) is embarking on a period of significant change and transformation with a view to ensuring that WA athletes and coaches are given every opportunity to achieve the best possible High Performance (HP) outcomes.

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

Our priority first and foremost is to consolidate and build a State High Performance system and culture that will see our elite surfers and coaches supported and serviced at all levels of the event and athlete pathway.

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.
