The ASRL represents the surf rowers of Australia, guiding the development and promoting the advancement of National surfboat competition at both grassroots and elite levels.
The ASRL Committee would like to acknowledge and thank the SLSA Board and Staff who have negotiated with us on the introduction of Helmets into our sport. We have been treated with respect and our opinion valued along this long and at times rough road but the final result has been reached so now everybody can get on with enjoying the new season.
The attachments below (PDF reader required) are the final pieces to the puzzle in understanding the new Helmet Policy and will quell any opportunity for this policy to be misinterpreted at any level. Sweeps are urged to understand our important role to the safety of our crews. By all means we urge all crews to go out into and train in surf to lift the skill level but to also be mindful of the requirements of the new policy.
