The 2019 Interstate Surf Boat Championships will be held at Elouera Beach on Friday.

The Interstate Surf Boat Championships are a one-day event and an opportunity for crews from around Australia to represent their state at a high level.

NSW are the defending champions and will be fielding eight teams at the event with male and female crews to contest the under-19s, 23s, reserve and open divisions.

Four clubs will be represented with North Cronulla (four crews) and Avalon Beach (two crews), joining Palm Beach and Elouera in the action.

NSW Surf Sports Officer Chiara Nowland is confident that those selected will give a good account of themselves in the battle for interstate glory.

“There is a lot of depth in surf boat competition right now and we’ve seen a number of very promising results throughout the season,” she said.

“To pull on the sky blue cap is a fantastic opportunity for these athletes and I am sure that those selected will be ready to defend the proud history of surfboats in NSW.”

The announcement comes on the back of a number of state appointed selection events including Coffs Harbour, North Cronulla, Queenscliff and Manly carnivals, following which the selection panel were able to endorse the team.
