Country lifesavers head to Cudgen for championships

There will be a full schedule of events at Cudgen Headland this weekend as 1500 athletes compete.

For the second year in a row Cudgen Headland Surf Lifesaving Club will host over 1500 competitors, this upcoming weekend, for the NSW Country Surf Lifesaving Championships.

The Championship is the only event on the surf sports calendar to feature a full range of racing, including surfboats, as well as all age groups from U/8s through to masters, within a two-day surf carnival.

The event has a green footprint, with environmental sponsors, a waste recycling plan and reusable water bottles.

It will also be live-streamed for the first time, allowing the competitors’ family and friends at home, all over the state, to watch the action live. 

In all, over 30 country NSW SLSCs will attend the event.

Cudgen are the reigning country champions and pushed Byron Bay into second place in 2019, followed by Warilla Barrack Point and then Lennox Head–Alstonville.

All the action this Saturday and Sunday, February 1–2 at Cudgen Beach.
