SOME of Australia's best student surfers will battle it out for the Southern Cross University King and Queen of the Campuses surf competition this Friday at Cabarita Beach.

Male and female students from the Gold Coast, Lismore and Coffs Harbour campuses will compete in the event organised by SCU Sports Management Surfing Studies class.

The top six students in the men's and women's divisions will represent SCU at the Australian University Games at Lennox Head from in July this year.

SCU cleaned up last year winning the men's, women's and overall divisions at the games.

Students and members of the public are invited to the Cabarita competition, which will include entertainment throughout the day.

International student Sunny Fassler, who was raised in Switzerland and the USA before moving to Australia to study at Southern Cross University, said he enjoyed using his new skills to develop the competition.

"Organising this event is a great opportunity to gain further knowledge and experience in event management, and it will definitely help me to pursue a career within the surfing industry," Mr Fassler said.

The Diploma of Sport Management (Surfing Studies) course has attracted students from France, Morocco, USA, Canada and South Africa.

The King and Queen of the Campuses Surf Competition will take place in front of the Cabarita Surf Life Saving Club, located on the NSW Far North Coast, on Friday, May 11 from 8am. Media are invited to attend between 8am and 4pm.
