The 2020 Orica Team Challenge is open to all surfboard clubs in Australia. The event will be held at Stockton Beach, Newcastle on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2020. The contest will again have clubs competing for $10,000 in prize money.

Orica Acting General Manager Paul Hastie said “Orica is delighted to again sponsor the Orica Team Challenge on Stockton beach. This is our eight year of support for the event, which continues to grow and evolve. The competition between the clubs is always very strong and exciting to watch.

On behalf of Orica and our team we wish all teams the best of luck and hope for great waves and weather.”

Surfest Organiser Warren Smith said, “The eighth Orica Team Challenge has evolved into a major event on the Surfest calendar. It is great to see surfing in this team format. There is a real sense of club pride and camaraderie amongst the teams.

We warmly welcome some of the strongest board clubs who have entered teams from up and down the NSW coast. The event is hosted by the Northside Boardriders and their hospitality is second to none. All clubs enjoy the welcoming vibe from the Stockton community also.”
