A pivotal part of queensland’s continued success in surf sports is slsq’s strong focus on development at grassroots level to ensure we have highly skilled athletes. As competitors from clubs around the state fight it out for surf rescue supremacy.

SLSQ has implemented an athlete development program which provides an opportunity for surf sports athletes to further develop their skills, allowing our members to reach their full potential. Traditionally, Queensland has produced some of the country’s best surf sports athletes and SLSQ is committed to continuing this tradition as well as offering athletes of any ability the opportunity to perform at their best.
