About Us

TBC strives to create a positive, inclusive and unified surfing community that supports team and individual competitive surfing success representative of the Torquay surf community, by nurturing and developing our surfers to be and achieve their best in a healthy surfing environment.

TBC was formed in 1978 to ensure Torquay was represented as the premiere surfing centre of the state in all surfing events. The Torquay Boardriders Club has evolved over recent years into highly social family based club with participation by first and second generation surfers promoted, coaching and training programs conducted to ensure juniors are supported in their surfing development and well managed events are a priority. Successful competition results in individual and team events fly the flag for the club, but a lot of work is spent on nurturing the club junior talent, getting involved with local government beach use issues, community involvement such as promoting surfing law actively and such programs as Sunsmart.
