Thunder Down Under

Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT is a major supporter of surf lifesaving in NSW.

Our thinking is simple - a surf lifesaver doesn't charge to rescue you from the surf. And Dial Before You Dig doesn't charge to arrange information from our member companies where you are digging.

Over the last decade, Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT has become the major sponsor at the following surf lifesaving clubs (listed from north to south):

  • Cudgen Headland (Kingscliff)
  • Tacking Point (Port Macquarie)
  • Tea Gardens Hawks Nest
  • Mona Vale
  • Bondi
  • Moruya.

We are also in sponsorship discussions with Cooks Hill (Newcastle).

This partnership with surf lifesaving in NSW has led to an association with the Ocean Thunder Pro Surfboat series.

Ocean Thunder is an elite made-for-TV event held over four rounds each season. Highlights from each round are shown on Fox Sports as well as free-to-air TV.

Twenty five men's and women's crews competed in Ocean Thunder in 2014/15.

This season was the tenth for Ocean Thunder. Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT has been associated with all except one season.

in 2014/15 Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT sponsored men's and women's crews from the following clubs in Ocean Thunder:

  • Bondi
  • Mona Vale
  • Bondi
  • Austinmer
  • Bulli.

Our cousins at Dial Before You Dig Vic/Tas also sponsored the St Kilda women's crew.

Fox Sports has been showing highlights from each round. Round 4 highlights are scheduled for February 25 and 28.

Congratulations to men's champions Currumbin and women's champions Helensburgh-Stanwell Park.
