Surfing Reserves are officially recognised surf breaks, which have been zoned for protection, because the location has assumed iconic status in the Australian surfing community. The declaration of a surfing reserve achieves three purposes:

  • it formally recognises the site as an area of surfing significance and quality surf;
  • it recognises the long and close links between surfers and the surf and
  • it will assist in the long term preservation of the site for future surfers.
