“Our first ever Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf series was such a success and the athletes all did such an incredible job racing and entertaining at the highest level. Shaw and Partners look forward to rolling out an even bigger summer for the athletes which will see an expanded prize pool, jackpot incentives and a better racing experience for athletes of all levels. We are so excited for the summer ahead!”

As the Summer of Surf looks forward to showcasing its biggest summer racing schedule to date on Seven, this partnership will see live racing, highlights packages and behind the scenes action become more accessible than ever before.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said the alignment with Summer of Surf is another valuable addition to Seven’s unrivalled sport offering.

 

“As Your Home of Sport, we are rapt to deliver the Summer of Surf to Seven’s vast and highly-engaged audience on 7plus,” Martin said.

 

“We know that Australians are hungry for sport content and we look forward to bringing all the action of an incredible 22/23 Summer of Surf campaign on Aussie shores to both the core and emerging audience of surf sports.”

Summer of Surf General Manager Trent Goulding extends a warm welcome to both existing and new partners. 

 

“Rolling out the biggest possible racing schedule is our absolute favourite thing to do. With Shaw and Partners support we have been able to reach our vision of running the greatest summer racing series in the world for athletes by athletes. To have globally recognised brands like Oakley and a broadcast deal with Seven network highlights just how much momentum we have and we look forward to continued growth across all elements of our series.”

 

Current Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf Ironman Champion Matt Bevilacqua hopes he can go back to back with his ironman and board titles and is looking forward to racing on the Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf’s biggest platform yet. 

 

“The expansion we are seeing in the Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf is absolutely mind blowing. Everything from the iconic racing locations, beach atmosphere, broadcast quality and never before seen prize money is all so inspiring. With so much on the line I know we are all chomping at the bit for the summer to roll around and racing to get underway!”
