Seven Network Extends Partnership With World Surf League Through 2023 Season
Seven To Continue As Official Free-to-Air Partner To World Surf League In Australia For 2023 Season.


COOLANGATTA, QLD/AUS (Friday November 18, 2022) - Australian surfing fans can continue riding the wave on the Seven Network, with Seven extending its partnership as the free-to-air broadcaster of the World Surf League (WSL) to cover surfing's biggest and most iconic events.

Following the sport's triumphant debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and an exhilarating 2022 season across the screens of Seven, fans can now view every WSL live contest and highlights show of the 2023 season on Seven and 7plus.

Kickstarting with the iconic Billabong Pro Pipeline in Hawaii in January 2023 - famously won by Kelly Slater this year - WSL live coverage on 7plus will include all stops of the world's premier surfing competition, the WSL Championship Tour, along with the Challenger Series, the Rip Curl WSL Finals and Australian-based Qualifying Series events.

The partnership will also see Seven broadcast the Rip Curl WSL Finals on free-to-air television, as well as 11 hour-long highlights of Championship Tour events.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: "Surfing is a sport that draws a lot of passion from people all over the world, particularly Australians, so we're stoked to continue our partnership with the World Surf League.

"As we sit at the precipice of a new era of surfing, it's an incredibly exciting time for the much-loved sport. The nation's golden girl of the waves, Steph Gilmore, is showing no signs of slowing down after claiming her eighth world title this year, and who could forget the greatest of all time, Kelly Slater, making history in the Pipeline last year?

"With the future of Aussie surfing in the hands of newcomers Molly Picklum, Isabella Nichols and Ethan Ewing, 2023 is set to deliver more stories and moments that you cannot miss, and you can catch it all right here on Seven and 7plus," he said.

WSL APAC President, Andrew Stark, said: "We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Channel 7 and 7 Plus in Australia and look forward to sharing our amazing WSL events and stories through the 7 network. 7 are a true leader in Australian sports broadcasting and we are genuinely appreciative of our partnership and look forward to continuing the momentum into the future".

Ahead of the 2023 event schedule, Seven has viewers covered for the remainder of 2022 with the next stop of the Challenger Series, the Haleiwa Challenger, available to stream live and on demand on 7plus from 26 November.

Very poor: Sydney’s most polluted swimming spots revealed


The number of beaches, lakes and lagoons frequently exposed to troubling levels of pollution and sewage has doubled since 2019 after a year of record rains swamped waterways with floodwater.

About one in five swimming areas were rated “poor” or “very poor” in the latest State of the Beaches report released by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, double the one in 10 areas susceptible to pollution in the 2019-2020 report.

Environment Minister James Griffin said this year’s results were a slight decline on the previous year.

“Which is not surprising, given NSW just experienced the wettest summer in a decade and Sydney is experiencing its wettest month on record,” he said.

Eighty per cent of swimming sites had “good” or “very good” pollution ratings.

But Coogee Beach, Rose Bay Beach, Northbridge Baths and Bayview Baths were among the sites downgraded to “poor” after holding “fair” or “good” gradings last year.

The ratings are based on data from the government’s water testing program, Beachwatch, which examined most swimming sites monthly from May to September and weekly during the warmer months. Ocean beaches are tested weekly year-round.

Water samples from 97 sites around Sydney, and 214 sites in total along the NSW coast, are tested for enterococci bacteria.

Enterococci does not cause illness but is present in human intestines, so levels of the bacteria are used as a measure of how much raw sewage is in water.

Swimming sites rated as “poor” mean the water there is “susceptible to faecal pollution” and not always suitable for swimming, particularly three days after rainfall. It’s generally unsafe to swim at “very poor” rated areas because of the levels of sewage, microbes and pathogens in the water.

The testing process takes 24 to 48 hours, so there is no real-time indicator of water quality, but Beachwatch uses rainfall data to forecast contamination levels.

As a wet spring continues, Western Sydney University water scientist Dr Ian Wright advises swimmers to keep a keen eye on the Beachwatch forecast.

“This is really important information, particularly for people that have a weakened immune system or are very young, old or sick,” Wright said.

Swimming in polluted water carries a small risk of contracting gastro, hepatitis A and infections on the skin and in the ears, eyes, blood and respiratory tract.

“Anyone that swims in an estuary or coastal beach near an urban area should know ... you just don’t swim for a few days, because it’s very likely that you’re swimming through diluted sewage.”

While more than three quarters of swimming sites and lakes and lagoons were susceptible to pollution, 94 per cent of NSW’s ocean beaches scored “good” or “very good” ratings.

Coogee Beach was the only beach in Sydney deemed poor.
