Out of the way boys, the girls are taking over the beach! There will be a distinctly feminine feel on beaches around the country come Saturday 3 March when the Surf Dive‘N Ski Girls Go Surfing Day hits the waves.
The revamped program, which had its last run in 2013, encourages girls of any age and ability to come along and learn from an experienced instructor how to surf.
The Girls Go Surfing Day provides an amazing opportunity to share the experience of surfing and also to give back to the Surf for Life Project. This project helps to get underprivileged children into surfing, something that they have never before had the chance to do.
Participants will have a two-hour surf lesson and receive a $100 Surf Dive ‘N Ski participation pack with $5.00 from the $75.00 total cost per person going directly back into the Surf for Life Project.
Nearly 50 Surfing Australia affiliated surf schools from Queensland right around to Western Australia will host a day full of fun under the sun for women of all ages, setting participants up to go surfing for life.
Byron Bay, Lennox Heads, and Hastings Point are the venues in Northern NSW, on the Gold Coast the venues will be Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, Currumbin Alley and Greenmount Beach.
Surfing Australia CEO Andrew Stark says “We’re very excited to be bringing the Surf Dive ‘N Ski Girls Go Surfing Day to the shores of Australia in 2018. This Surfing Australia female participation program was successful for 23 years and after a few years break, we are bringing this program back-to-life for our surf school network and more importantly, to encourage female participation in our sport.”
Good stuff. You go girls, go hit the waves and get amongst it!
