Welcome to the Army Surfing website

Army Surfing is responsible to the Army Sports Control Board (ASCB) for the correct and safe administration of the sport of surfing.  The generic term “surfing” includes the riding of longboards, shortboards, mini-mals and bodyboards, however, it does not include the use of windsurfers, waveskis, kayaks or kite surfboards. 

Army Surfing aims to meet at least 3 times a year at various spots around the country as well and host the Army Championships & compete in the Inter-Service Championships.  In addition we aim for an overseas tour at least every 2 years.


The aims of Army Surfing are to promote and encourage the sport of surfing, and to provide a focal point for all forms of competitive surfing within the Army.  The subsidiary aims of the Union are as follows:

  • To act as the central body of control for competitive surfing within the Army.
  • To promote and arrange Individual, Divisional, Army and Inter-Service competitions.
  • To select teams or individuals to represent the Army in Surfing Great Britain approved competitions.
  • To promote the mounting of surfing sports tours to various countries throughout the world, thereby improving the standard of surfing within the Service, and encouraging leadership, initiative and organisational skills.
