Inclusive Line Ups Committee Members opportunity

We are looking for people with a deep passion for equality and diversity within surfing who want to join our new Inclusive Line Ups Committee.

Surfing England is a not for profit organisation run by surfers, for surfers, working to nurture a healthy surfing community, one that is open and welcoming to all and shares the joy of surfing across every discipline of wave riding.

Across the board and operations team there is a deep commitment to ensuring surfing grows as a sport and lifestyle that is open and welcoming to all. We want to use surfing to help overcome social challenges and barriers and to see the line up become a more culturally diverse place, providing a richer surfing experience for everyone. Recognising we have a small team and limited resources, we need innovative approaches to do this. We have created the Inclusive Line Ups committee to bring in new perspectives, different lived experiences and expertise that will help shape our delivery plans and develop new ideas and avenues to engage more people from a wider variety of backgrounds with our amazing sport.

The committee members will be doing much more than sitting on quarterly zoom meetings, we need people who have the capacity to get stuck into a range of projects and activities, working both strategically and tactically. If you think this could be for you, please have a look at the committee’s Terms of Reference to provide some context, and the Committee Member Job Description for the full job breakdown.

We are seeking to develop a panel that has good representation from a broad range of groups that have been traditionally under-represented in surfing. We are open to applications from people from all parts of society that are passionate about inclusion in surfing. We particularly welcome applications where we have identified specific challenges, such as those able to bring expertise and /or lived experience of living with disability and those able to represent the Black and Asian community.

Please follow the instruction in the job description if you wish to apply to join the committee. Please note this is a voluntary position.
