Hello hello freshers and non-freshers, surfer champions and non-surfers. Our club is open to anyone who just wants to take a surfboard in the water and have fun!

We are open to all skill levels, what we look for is just fun people to go to have surfing trips with. We usually have socials every two weeks where we meet in Falmer Bar and we head down to Brighton's greatest clubbing venues, but we also have daytime socials at the beach to play volleyball and go paddleboarding (weather permitting). So if in reading all this you have the slightest curiosity to get involved with us c'mon and join and give it a go!

First of all we'd just like to reccommend that you head over to our 'Sussex Surf' page on FACEBOOK and follow us there so that you get all the updates on what we have planned for you. Also if you add 'Dom SussexSurf' as a friend on facebook you'll get invited to all the events we are running, and we wouldn't want you to miss out!

Plus if you're into it we've got a rad little instagram page if you want to keep up to date with what we're up to, follow 'sussexsurf'.


Over the last few years our socials have included: many, many club nights; a massive 200 person bar crawl; sunset paddleboarding sessions; beach bbqs; wakeboarding; lasertag; and so much more! We have tonnes of new and fun stuff planned for you this year!


NEWQUAY - We are heading down to Cornwall for the annual BUCS event, this is from the 11th-14th of OCTOBER. Head over to our facebook page to find all the details for this!!

WITTERINGS - This is a beach break about an hour away from us that is a lot better than Brighton's surf breaks and will be used for last minute trips (by car) when the waves are up. We can take/ rent boards there and all you will have to pay is some rental and petrol money.

EASTER - The Easter break gives us the opporunity to go away on a surf trip abroad. Past destinations include, Portugal and Morocco!

Leaf Awards

What is the Leaf Scheme?
Leaf awards reflect contributions of the society or sports club towards its members, the University of Sussex Students’ Union, the University of Sussex, the local community and the public. Leaves can be attained at bronze, silver or gold levels by meeting three, six or nine criteria. Leaves apply for an academic year as a symbol of what the present committee have achieved.

Groups can work towards nine leaves:

Below are the Leaves we have achieved so far this year:


Events Leaf

The Events leaf is awarded to groups who have demonstrated an exceptional ability to organise and hold events on a regular basis. Such groups have also made the effort to hold joint events with other societies/sports clubs and/or the Students’ Union and the University. They have also gotten involved in cultural and community events.


Communications Leaf

The Communications Leaf is awarded to groups who communicate with their members and the student body regularly and in innovate ways.
