Description

Each November, Round 1 of the Navy Surf Rowers National Premiership is staged at Surfers Paradise, with elite crews from around Australia delighting the on-shore crowd as they push their boats and themselves to the limit.

Centre pieced by two dramatic days of surf boat action, the event will also include thrilling Navy helicopter fly overs and beach rescue displays. Not to mention the official competition and a mix of crowd pleasing race formats, including a stunning 'shotgun start', with 35 boats hitting the water simultaneously, and the daredevil 'expression session'.
