Umina's Jemma Smith has been named in the Surf Life Saving NSW Interstate Team.
Jemma is the only representative from the Central Coast to make the 24-member team which will compete at the Interstate Championships in Newport on January 24.
"NSW is looking to retain the Interstate trophy for yet another year with a strong team of experienced and emerging athletes, some of who are shaping up to be the best new talent in surf sports," said NSW surf sports development coordinator Ms Chiara Nowland.
"The depth of talent in the squad is impressive.
"Many selected athletes have just returned from their Australian campaign at the World Lifesaving Championships in Adelaide with reputable results under their belt.
"Selectors are confident they have chosen a team with the quality to maintain Interstate Champion Status into 2019," she said.
Jemma will be competing for the state in the Open team.
