INTRODUCTION Contacio is everything surf! We cover events, labels, social media advertising, branding, locations, small local businesses, coaching, wellness, lifestyle, individual surfers and are co-founders of a Perth based board riders club.
Contacio began as a mystical surf break on the WA Coast in-between Scarborough and Trigg Beach. Contacio used to be a motel on the hill which is now home to some very large houses known as Contacio Cove. The name Contacio is now shared as a Surf Industry goto as well as for the newly reformed board riders of WA.
CBR ( Contacio Boardriders All Ages and Levels) our biggest project is fast becoming one of the largest clubs on the West Coast. Since CBR reformed in 2015 the membership has increased by 75%
ABOUT CONTACIO BOARDRIDERS After a long two years of planning, It was decided to “Bring back Contacio” with the assistance of some former Contacio Presidents as well as Surfing WA the process began.
Finally............................Contacio Boardriders was re-born in January 2015 with the first competition seeing 37 members enrol.
With respect to the majority of the Contacio traditions original events stayed on the calendar. (annual Aussie day cricket match, annual Denmark classic, Rotto Weekend, Bali getaway and the Triple Crown Series). And our ethos still remain as CCC ! Contacio, Committment, Courage
After a year trial in 2015, more changes occurred after feedback from the members. 2016 meant we now divided the club into two divisions, Juniors/Opens. 2017 we see some of the final steps to completing the clubs constitution and finalising how the club will be run for the future. The decisions are made by a team of volunteers taking into account past events from the original Contacio and what had been trialled in 2015 and 2016.
Contacio has other elements ,,,, Some of the ideas that have been shared by volunteers and a possible for the future: Vintage Store, Contacio High Performance, Athlete Management, Contacio Surf Lessons, Contacio Skateboard Riders, Contacio blogging and Google Ad Sense, Contacio advertising website, Contacio Beach Cafe and finally and all ready taking of the Contacio Surf Culture Events.
HISTORY OF CBR Contacio Boardriders (aka CBR ) is a club that was formed by a group of young teens almost 20 something years ago,“ the mythical beach in between Scarborough and Trigg" . Contacio was a well known hill top Hotel/Motel in the early 19th century (sounds old) that was situated at the top of Contacio Court Scarborough. The original Contacio first meeting document is still floating around on Facebook, it was the basis of what Tania used “as a go-to” as she prepared to bring the club back! Contacio is family orientated and welcomes all ages and all abilities. We compete for the feeling of belonging to a club. Occasionally we do reward the members from our sponsors.
So come on board and join one of the fastest growing clubs in WA!
