Communities gather for the Woorangalook Koori Surfing Titles on Wadawurrung Country

The annual tradition has now been running for over 20 years and sees Indigenous Victorian surfers young and old come together to catch up, surf and share stories from the last 12 months.

2021 saw a slightly modified format due to COVID-19 restrictions with the 130 competitors spaced out into smaller groups throughout the weekend to ensure minimal contact between competitors.

“ It was amazing to catch up with the crew, have a yarn and go for a surf. Although the event ran slightly different to normal, the vibe was still the same and everyone was there to have a good time.” said Surfing Victoria Indigenous Aquatics Manager and Open Men’s Champion Jordie Campbell

The event gives community members from all skill levels and opportunity to compete with lessons being run for the beginners to being as well as heats for the more experienced competitors.
