2018 Layne Beachley Camp At The Surfing Australia High Performance Centre

Twelve of Australia’s best junior female surfers have wrapped up three days to remember in the 2018 Layne Beachley Camp at the Surfing Australia High Performance Centre (HPC) as part of the Localsearch Talent ID Program.

The group has benefited from judged surf sessions, jet ski assisted surf sessions, video review sessions, a breath enhancement session facilitated by Nam Baldwin (Surfing Australia’s Elite Performance Specialist), the new and improved Sport Australia Surf Skate Facility at the HPC and all the knowledge and expertise they could extract from the seven-time World Champion herself.

The camp is designed to provide an environment for participants to practice competitive skills and identify tools that may assist in heat scenarios.

Surfing Australia Chair and seven-time World Champion Layne Beachley said: “The future of surfing is heading towards the air, so the benefit of having skateboarding and trampoline sessions gets the girls comfortable being in the air and increasing their spatial awareness. Being able to practice airs in a safe and controlled environment here at the HPC is key. This has been one of the best camps we have ever had, it comes down to the attitude of the people who participated.”

“I am really honoured to have a camp in my name and be able to help groom and help develop the junior talent in this country.”

Surfing Australia’s Head Judge, Glen Elliot officiated two mock contests over the three days, providing insight and feedback.

The Layne Beachley Award was presented to Holly Williams, who was judged to have best displayed the Surfing Australia values of Real, Respectful and Progressive.

Three of Australia’s best female surf coaches in Serena Brooke, Kate Wilcomes and Layne Beachley joined Surfing Australia coaches Samba Mann and Clancy Dawson over the three-day camp.

The next camp within the Localsearch Talent ID Program is the Mark Richards Camp on the 21st-23rd August.
