Australian Women in Surf Gala 2017-10-23T00:43:08+00:00

This year’s event is on the 28th of October. Don’t miss out! Limited tickets are available to the public. Buy your ticket today.


The gala puts the limelight on the amazing women who’ve been instrumental in building and creating the pathway for Australian Women’s surfing today and also celebrates our present and future hero’s.

We recognize not only those that have gone onto international fame, but also the generations of strong, largely unknown, women who have played an integral part in making female surfing what it is today. Their stories resonate with all Australian sports and business women, so it’s only fitting that the guest list reflects the game-changers of culture, and the gala event includes a panel couch session to relive great memoires.

Over 250 guest will celebrate the evening together and invited Surf legends to include all 8 Aussie world Champions Phyllis O’Donnell, Wendy Botha, Pam Burridge, Pauline Menczer, Layne Beachley, Chelsea Georgeson, Steph Gilmore and Tyler Wright. Plus, great WSL tour competitors Sally Fitzgibbons, Laura Enever, Nikki Van Dijk, Keely Andrew, Bronte Macaulay and some of the best young talent coming through the waves.

Two incredible women will be heralded with specialised segments to celebrate their contributions and inspirations to current and future generations and the red couch will see three of the most exciting current and future prospects share their thoughts on the sport.

This is a must attend event for everybody associated, in any form, to the amazing sport of surfing in Australia.
