Pam Burridge

Pam Burridge is known as one of Australia’s first professional surfer girls and blazed the trail for a generation of surfers to come. She won NSW State, National and in 1990 the ASP World Title. Pam toured the world competing for close to 20 years before moving from Sydney’s Northern Beaches to the South Coast.

The Lady Behind It All

Pam was the first women in Australia to become a full time professional surfer & she has devoted herself to the pursuit of excellence in her chosen sport. Born in Sydney in 1965, Pam was given her 1st surfboard at the age of 10, being a strong swimmer & having good ocean knowledge gave her a quick progression in the sport of surfing. Pam entered her first surfing contest in 1977 & took out 1st place, she continued her thirst for competition by entering & winning various amateur

titles which then led her to join the professional tour at the age of 15.By the age of 17 she had her 1st runner-up finish & to her disappointment this happened another 5 times throughout her career. In 1990 she finally broke through winning her 1st world title at Sunset Beach, Hawaii.Pam finally quit the pro tour in 1998 retiring to the beautiful NSW South Coast where she now runs her successful surf schools.
