Australia is eyeing gold in the 2020 Olympic surfing competition, and to that end the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre is undergoing a major expansion. Federal and state government grants are going towards the $6 million project, with the aim of creating world-class training facilities that will hone Aussie surfing talents for the Tokyo comp.
The HPC already has a rep for providing superior training. Pro surfer Bede Durbridge credits the center with lifting his career, and Junior QS Champion Zahli Kelly looks forward to being in the upcoming Olympics with the help of training at the institute.
