Australia has the best surfers in the world and surfing remains one of the nation’s favourite sports. Now confirmed for the Tokyo Olympics, the profile of the sport and our world champion surfers will go from strength to strength.
“Nine’s charity arm, 9Cares, is also proud to be able to work side by side with Surfing Australia’s important community initiatives.”
