Surf Boat Information
A surf boat is an oar-driven boat, crewed by four rowers and steered by a sweep. Crews compete head-to-head, rowing from the beach through the surf into open water where they turn a set of buoys and race back to the beach. As the surf boat nears the shore the aim is to catch a wave whilst the sweep steers the boat to keep it upright and on the face of the wave.
There is no set training for surf boat rowers as each crew rows on different days and times.
