The Surf League is truly unique competition with historical roots that run all the way back to 1986, making it WA's longest running and most prestigious teams surfing event, combining what Australian sport is all about; mateship, team spirit and excitement.
WA's best boardriding clubs have been invited to nominate six of their strongest surfers (4 x open age surfers, 1 x O/28 senior surfer, and 1 x U/18 junior surfer) in an exciting format that combines the top two scores from each surfer for a combined team total.
Powerhouse clubs who have dominated Surf League over the past decade include Trigg Point and Margaret River who have gone head-to-head over the years and remain the teams to beat in 2014.
"This is the one event per year that everyone genuinely wants to win," said Trigg Point Team Captain Mick Jardine. "We're excited to defend our title against some quality opposition whilst enjoying the banter and rivalry between Margaret River and all the other clubs competing."
Surfers from City Beach, Geraldton, Yallingup, and Mandurah will also be out to etch their club's name on the perpetual trophy whilst enjoying the atmosphere and camaraderie the event has grown famous for.

Counsel's strong sentiment for the ongoing support of Surf League was reiterated by his general manager Neil Atkinson. "For us it's all about putting something back into the local surfing community and encouraging junior surfers and clubs right across WA."
