FULL LIST OF COMPETITON RULES 
The Point Lonsdale Boardriders Club will provide all members with a competition schedule early in the competition/calendar year. The schedule will be adhered to as much as is possible given the unpredictable nature of weather and surf conditions.
The Point Lonsdale Boardriders Club will notify members of the signup window via the club website and social media streams.
It is the individual member's responsibility to register on time. 
By registering to compete in a Point Lonsdale Boardriders Club competition the individual commits him or herself to compete in the competition in its entirety. It is unfair on all concerned if individuals surf in heats and then are unable to commit to surfing in semis and finals.
“Under” Age Divisions: competitors must be under the specified age as of December 31st in the year of competition.
 “Over ” Age Divisions: competitors must be of the specified age as of Jan1st in the year of competition. 
Competitors may register to surf in two divisions only. This will be firstly their age division as defined by the Surfing Australia Rule Book and their respective open division.
All competitions will be run in accordance with the Surfing Australia Rule Book, a copy of which will be available for purposes of reference at all competitions. We don’t use it often and we aren’t playing for sheep stations, but it is there if it is needed. 
All club competitions, unless specifically designated as novelty events, will count towards the accumulation of points in order to determine club champions and placing’s in all divisions.
The Greg Davidson Memorial Competition is the clubs feature shortboard event traditionally held over the Australia Day Long Weekend. 
The Onshore Classic is a 9ft plus Longboard comp with a popular recent tradition of Easter Sunday at the front beach if possible. All surfers compete in the one division, with prizes for the highest place holder in the normal divisions( women, juniors, cadet etc) plus novelty prizes for best noseride etc. Emphasis is on fun and involvement.
The Groms Off-The-Wall is for our under 15 members. Maximum 80. This is a fun, coaching day where beginners get tips from senior club members. New members have the option of a one day membership fee.
Any person in any event run by PLBC must be a current member. 
Please remember that the club is run by volunteers. We endeavour to run the events as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Judging surfing is a subjective process. All efforts are made to have our most experienced judges on deck for finals. We encourage and assist all members to learn so they can contribute.
 Any queries about results or schedule should be directed to the Competition Director or president.
