The 2019 country surf life saving championships will return to the Cudgen club for the first time in 16 years over the weekend of February 2–3.

Over 1,300 surf life savers from 35 clubs across country NSW are expected to compete across all divisions from U/8s through to Masters.

‘It’s great to bring this major event to the far north coast to the home of the defending Country Championships club,’ said SLSNSW surf sports manager Rob Pidgeon.

‘It’s an opportunity for our country athletes to compete at an elite level in the lead-up to the state and Australian championships. The last time we were here was in 2002/03 and we’re glad to be back.’

Local surf life saver Lilly O’Sullivan, who took out the triple crown of gold at the Australian Championships in 2018, as well as being selected in the 2019 Youth Pathway Cup team and competing in the Ocean 6 Series, is hoping to continue her winning streak in front of a home crowd.
