Introduction to March Past

The March Past is literally the ‘flagship’ event of any surf carnival and one of the most traditional events that still exists today. It is a largely ceremonial event, strict on team uniformity and scored on absolute military precision.

Each club is encouraged to present a march past team of twelve (12) at major carnivals. The team marches onto the competition arena proudly flying the club standard (flag) and carrying a traditional belt line and reel, maintaining formation and moving in timely march. It is a very proud occasion for any club to witness their team representing the club at a major championship event, and an even prouder feeling to be able to fill part of that team.
