Surfline and Surfing Australia have teamed up to give grassroots Boardriders Clubs in Victoria grants to grow their tribes. 

The Surfline Next Wave Grant will call on clubs in our region to submit a video entry explaining why their club is the most deserving of a share in $10,000. First prize for the Surfline Next Wave Grant will take home $5000, second place will be rewarded $3000 and third place will earn $2000. 

I know for a fact Bronte Boardriders could make light work of an extra $10K to upgrade Primo max-value sausages to some lamb and dill Andouilles (or hog-on-spit). Some poor grom probs needs a shortboard though… 

Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson said “These clubs are a part of the framework of our surfing culture and are integral for the development of our surfing stars in and out of the water. The grant provides a great opportunity for our local clubs and I am sure whoever wins the grant Australia-wide will no doubt use the funds to continue supporting their athletes and their pathways going forward.”

With over 200 boardriders clubs in Australia and over 20,000 members, Surfing Australia Head of Partnerships, Clarissa Pike said the competition is set to be fierce for the grant funds.

Victorian boardriders clubs are invited to participate and apply for the grant till September 9, 2022.
