Surfing WA is the State’s governing body across all boarding codes including surfing, bodyboarding and stand up paddle boarding.

The Western Australian Government has partnered with Surfing WA as part of its shark hazard mitigation strategy, to support water safety for events, and first response training for surfers through the Surfers Rescue 365 program. 

State Government has funded Surfing WA’s Ocean Safety program, to provide jetskis and drones to support water safety at events, and the Surfers Rescue 365 course to surfers state wide and board-rider clubs. This course delivers free first aid training tailored specifically for surfers.
