The new Surfing GB website has gone live! This hopefully signals the start of a new era of British Surfing, the guys behind the steering committee have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to get it this far and now its up to everyone to get behind it. Check out the website, let them know your thoughts – good or bad, it will all help them get things back on track and start earning back the support and respect from our British surfing public. Keep up the good work guys – your doing a fantastic job!
This is what they have to say…
Welcome to Surfing GB
“It’s well known that British surfing has seen its fair share of administrative problems in recent years, but this week’s meeting, between Surfing Great Britain and members of the steering committee, has resulted in good news for everyone who cares about surfing in this country. Divisions have been healed and tensions laid to rest. There’s a real buzz now about where we can take British surfing competitively – we want to have a British surfer on the World Championship Tour within 10 years – but it’s been vital all along that grass roots interests up and down the country are also looked after. The deal this week, between SGB and the steering committee, will see this happen and make for a bright future for UK surfing.”
Alex Wade – Chair of the Steering Committee
Our goal as your soon-to-be National Governing Body (NGB) for surfing is to provide a service to surfers and all those who are passionate about surfing. We all need a strong NGB to protect our waves, protect our surfers, and serve the interests of those who depend for their livelihoods and careers on surfing.
Our work in the next couple of years will focus on the things that grassroots surfers tell us they want and need. We have a wide range of skills and interests in our management team: if you love riding waves, or your work involves surfing, then we share a common interest.
Surf clubs, surf schools and coaches, soul surfers and competitive athletes all have a reason to join Surfing GB. We have so much going for us: YOU, the passionate people, YOU, the pool of talent, OUR fantastic waves and beautiful coastline. Working together we can accomplish great things. Look around the site, check out the benefits on offer, think if there are ways you can help us to improve, then fill in the membership surveys and get in touch!
Thanks for your support
The SGB team
