The next SBIA roundtable will be held at Twin Towns on the Gold Coast on March 14. It is perfect timing to be on the Gold Coast with the Quiksilver and Roxy Pros scheduled for Snapper Rocks from March 10 – 21.

Hopefully the waves will be pumping and we’ll have the chance to see the world’s best surfers in action at the first WCT event of the year. The Roundtable is open to SBIA members and it is free for retail members. The cost for Brands is $55/head and includes lunch and afternoon tea.

We’ll have three sessions and, as you’ll see below, it is an interesting agenda and worthwhile attending if you can make it.
