Hunter Region Branch

Hi Everyone.  We’re only a little branch, but we have lots of fun!

We base our surf days at the Belmont / Swansea Surf Club at Blacksmiths Beach.  They are wonderful people & we have some great days there.  The Club often helps our less mobile guys get down to the water & we can’t thank them enough for their continued help.  We’ve been there for a lot of years now, & we love coming back. 

We want to thank all our volunteers, supporters & of course the participants and their carers for making our surf days in the Hunter such wonderful days. We all get such a buzz out of them (or is it just the sausage sangers?). Well, maybe you’ll have to turn up to find out for yourself!

Hope to see you soon.
