The wider squad practices on Mondays and Wednesdays during lunchtime, while the Top 10 surfers engage in additional sessions traveling down the coast. The Top 10 surfers participate in three main events throughout the year, including the TSSSA surfing competition, an interschool exchange, and the National Schools' Competition.
