Perth Surf Park developer Aventuur and the state’s peak surfing body, Surfing WA, have announced a new partnership ahead of the $100m development’s 2026 opening.

As part of the partnership, Surfing WA will have unbridled access to the park, including use of the venue’s surfing lagoon, surf academy, and skate facilities for competitions, events, boardriders clubrounds and athlete training.

The agreement also sees the park’s surf coaches certified by Surfing WA, and will provide Surfing WA’s members with discounted park entry and experiences.

“The Perth Surf Park will be a great asset for surfing in Western Australia, and our relationship with Aventuur aligns seamlessly with our mission to advance surfing at all levels,” said Surfing WA CEO Mark Lane, pictured above with Aventuur Chairman Andrew Ross at the Surfing WA surf school.

“The park will provide the ultimate training ground for our Olympic, World Surf League and junior athletes, who can utilise the wavepool and other innovative facilities to prepare for their campaigns.”

In turn, Surfing WA will support Aventuur throughout development and operations, including “assisting with the design of the park’s surf academy, training surf coaches and surf guides, and developing holistic surf, skate and fitness programs in collaboration with Aventuur’s high-performance partner, Micro Surf Academy.”

“Our partnership with Surfing WA represents our commitment to create a sporting, leisure and tourism destination that is by the West, for the West,” said Aventuur Chairman and Chief Development Officer, Andrew Ross.

“In addition to nurturing the next generation of homegrown athletes, we’re excited to provide a hub for boardriders clubs, social surfing groups and aligned charities, and collaborate on meaningful initiatives to better our community – including beach clean-ups, water safety courses and mental wellness, resilience and surf therapy programs.”

The Perth Surf Park will be located in Central Cockburn, and expects to welcome over 1 million visitors per year once it opens in 2026, offerings waves for all abilities, training facilities, and major sporting and cultural events – along with leisure, hospitality and retail amenities.

The park has received all development and environment approvals, with construction expected to commence later this year ahead of an expected 2026 opening.

The Perth Surf Park is expected to create over 300 jobs during construction, and contribute more than $250m to the WA economy during its operating life.

With all development and environmental approvals now received, construction is expected to commence later in 2024, ahead of the park’s expected opening in 2026.
