Surfing For Girls Initiative Invites You To Next Events
EVENT // SURFING VICTORIA
Ever wanted to be part of a fun, safe group to learn a couple more surf skills? Surfing Victoria has kicked off the first of its events to support and women’s surfing. The initiative provides a group with a surf lesson, a session on how to rescue a swimmer or surfer in danger and a bag full of goodies.
For the first event in 2017, 13 girls took to Inverloch beach in Victoria under the guidance of coach Ruby Campbell. Surf conditions were small but perfect with one-to-two foot glassy waves and despite a little rainy, the girls had the best time on the beach and in the water. The smaller conditions meant everyone had a great time and could master a couple of key skills.
Ruby Campbell was stoked and impressed by the response of the girls saying, “It’s amazing to see so many girls having a go at surfing. I always look forward to travelling around the state for the program to see the next generation of female surfers”
The 7 locations of the program covers the state of Victoria and teaches the girls some valuable water safety skills and surfing technique in the lead up to summer.
Surfing Victoria promotes the fact that the program is lead and run by positive female role models and professional surf coaches to pass on skills and knowledge to the next generation.
You can join any one of the five tour stops, everyone is welcome. Each event is just $25 per person for the full session. Participants can register for any sessions online at www.surfingvic.com.
