SCHOOL surfers from across the mid and far north coasts will converge on Port Macquarie’s Town Beach on Friday, June 8.

The Hastings is playing host to the 2018 Regional School Surfing Titles with all the action to kick off from 7.30am.

Convenor Chris Fitzpatrick said conditions are looking good for the 2018 competition with more than 50 young surfers from along the coast travelling to compete for a berth in the state titles later this year.

A program run by Surfing NSW, the Regional School Surfing Titles is a competition that puts student surfers to the test with entries open to all government, Catholic and independent schools across the region.

Traditionally held in Forster, the competition will bring some of the best youth surfing action to the Hastings for the one day event.

“There are kids from coming from Coffs Harbour and Woolgoolga in the north and Forster in the south and from most of our local schools,” Fitzpatrick said.

“The forecast is looking good for the competition.”

The competition is run in two divisions – U16s boys and girls and U19s boys and girls.

The top two finishers in each division will earn themselves a sport in the state finals in Coffs Harbour in July.

The Mark Richards Shield is also up for grabs.
