2017 HIF CLIP OF THE SEASON KICKS OFF AGAIN IN NSW
by Surfing NSW
The Clip of the Season will be open to surfers in Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland across surfing, longboarding, bodyboarding and stand-up paddle boarding. Entrants are required to submit a short clip of one wave being ridden at some point during the 2017 winter season.
At the end of the winter period, the top two entries – as selected by state judging panels – will progress to a national final, with the overall winner and runner-up to be decided by a public vote.
At the end of the winter period, the top two entries as selected by state judging panels will progress to a national final, with the overall winner and runner-up to be decided by a public vote. The national competition prize pool totals $8,000, an attractive driver for both aspiring and established surfers and filmers funding their passion for surfing.
Surfing NSW CEO, Luke Madden believes the constant swells that hits the coastline over winter will result in some impressive submissions from NSW boardriders.
“In 2016, NSW saw some of the best waves we’ve seen in decades and the entrants capitalised on it by gathering some incredible footage. We believe that surfers will be looking to lift the standard from June 1st when the event window opens.”
Last year's National Winner filmer Belinda Le Grice (Western Australia) encourages all surfers to get involved this year.
“I spent my winnings on a surf coaching trip to Lombok with a friend for a week in April. We had a blast, great waves, met some great people and learnt heaps, and the best part, someone else was behind the lens.”
“There’s nothing to lose except maybe some time out of the water videoing someone else, but I find it pretty fun watching friends and family surf, especially with some of the great waves we have here in WA”
To enter all you have to do is send in a clip of a surfer riding a wave in NSW during the winter season (June 1st to August 31st) to email@example.com
You can be a pro, an amateur, a grommet or a veteran, all we need to see is you riding the best wave this winter on your preferred craft.
The HIF Clip of the Season is presented by HIF Australia and supported by Surfing VIC, Surfing WA, Surfing NSW and Surfing QLD.

Research shows that one in five Australian children aged 8 to 17 has been the target of cyberbullying in the past year. The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner can help you make a complaint, find someone to talk to and provide advice and strategies for dealing with these issues.
Make a Complaint
About this form
The Enhancing Online Safety for Children Act 2015 gives the power to provide assistance in relation to serious cyberbullying material. That is, material that is directed at a particular child with the intention to seriously embarrass, harass, threaten or humiliate.
Before you make a complaint you need to have:
- copies of the cyberbullying material to upload (eg screenshots or photos)
- reported the material to the social media service (if possible) at least 48 hours ago
- at hand as much information as possible about where the material is located
- 15-20 minutes to complete the form
The Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner is Australia's leader in online safety. The Office is committed to helping young people have safe, positive experiences online and encouraging behavioural change, where a generation of Australian children act responsibly online—just as they would offline.
We provide online safety education for Australian children and young people, a complaints service for young Australians who experience serious cyberbullying, and address illegal online content through the Online Content Scheme.
Our goal is to empower all Australians to explore the online world—safely.
