SISA wants to create a sense of whānaungatanga among our members and clubs. We have created 'The Whānau profile' page to showcase all of the legends that make our clubs and SISA possible. This is aimed at our surfers, organisers, clubs and behind the scenes legends in our amazing community. Any South Island club member can make the whānau page. 

This will Also transfer over to our Socials.

If you have a legend at your club you would like to nominate,  give them some Arohanui

and get in touch with us now!

Jack Tyro 

CLUB: Point Surf Team, CHCH

Sponsors: Exit Surf | Morris Surfboards

Our first whanau profile - Jack Tyro recently took out the number 2 Grom title in Aotearoa. Placing 2nd at the Billabong Grom Series. He has also been selected to compete and represent Aotearoa at the ISA World Junior Surfing Champs in El Salvador in 2022.

Jack is a very consistent surfer and places well in most of the comps he enters. Our favourite performance of his was actually at the Nationals in Westport 2022 where he claimed three 1st placings in multiple Divisions: U16 Boys Shortboard, Junior Mens Longboard and Open Mens Longboard. An outstanding achievement for a 16 year old dude from Christchurch. We have asked him a couple of questions below:

How does surfing make you feel Jack?

Jack: Surfing makes me feel part of something, a community where I can be myself and experience life with friends who are living the same dream. The surfing dream. Being in the waters so relaxing but exhilarating  at the same time. It makes me feel like im meant to be there
