Usher Cup surfing contest returns to Snapper Rocks this weekend

Some of the best boardrider clubs from across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria are set descend on Snapper Rocks from tomorrow for the second annual Usher Cup surf contest.

The three day event will see 144 male and female surfers hit the water to battle it out for a prize pool of over $73,000.

Teams will also be battling it out for the perpetual Club Championship trophy, and the opportunity to win $3,000 for their club.


“The Usher Cup is a great platform for aspiring pro surfers to step up a few levels from normal club surfing,” co-founder Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew said.

“The 2022 edition of the Usher Cup will pit the best Queensland and Northern NSW clubs against elite interstate clubs such as National Champions North Narrabeen, Torquay and North Shelly Clubs. This is going to be a phenomenal showdown.”

For those who can’t make it down to the Usher Cup, the event will be live streamed via
