Welcome to SurfingGB
Surfing GB aims to provide all Surfers and all those who have an interest in Surfing with support, advice and opportunity. Our commitment is to give you a good service. This website is designed to be a first point of call for information and to help you find the support you need.
Surfing GB is working to become the National Governing Body (NGB) for Surfing in Great Britain. Whatever your interest, the NGB has a role to play: We are here to support individual surfers trying to find information about their local break, we are here to support our Surf Schools and Coaches, the front-line professionals that depend for their livelihoods on Surfing; we are here to represent all surfers at Government level, as a stakeholder group in Marine and Coastal policy.
Yesterday was another highly intense day on the beach at the ISA World Junior Surfing Games in Nicaragua. The team was up bright and early for their daily pre breakfast free surf. We had all caught a couple of waves, had a team breakfast and then headed up the road to Playa Santana for 7am
The British junior team met for their last training session at the weekend, giving squad members one last chance to make an impression in front of selection panel before the GB team was finalised.
Meeting at Fistral beach on Saturday morning the squad scored reasonable two to three foot waves despite a poor forecast. Predominantly wind
We want to see British Surfing back on the international map as a force to be reckoned with across all disciplines. Our Longboarders are up there competing with the best; our Big Wave chargers are gaining Global recognition, but we have a long way to go in other disciplines. Right now our Junior Shortboard team have to wash cars to self- fund representing their country in the World Championships. We want to change that.
If you want to see British Surfing back on the Global map, and if you want your NGB to deliver the service and support you need PLEASE join us. Download the membership form, pay your fees. We are negotiating tons of groovy membership benefits and a spanking new insurance policy so it will come back to you in lots of perfect waves… and your support will give us the resources we need to work for you.
Thanks for your support
The SGB team
