Mallacoota turns on the weather for the Surfing for Girls Program

Mallacoota, VIC/AUS (Tuesday 28th November 2017): Mallacoota turned on the weather and waves for the Surfing for Girls Program held at Bastion Point this morning, with blistering sunshine and light winds all morning.


Held in the pristine East Gippsland Region, the program saw 30 girls from Mallacoota P-12 and Eden-Marine College involved in the program that teaches surf and water safety skills.


Lead role model Rikki Bell-Warren was stoked to see so many girls turn out for the day.


“Its incredible to see so many girls turn out to the day.”


“For such a remote region, having this many female surfers is amazing. They were all ripping and having heaps of fun.”


The Surfing Victoria run program brings together females of all ages for a day of fun and surfing with female role models across 8 locations in Victoria.


Utilising the abundance of positive female role models, participants are taught water safety, surf skills, and encouraged to continue physical activity into their adult life.


For only $25 participants receive a surf lesson, learn how to perform a rescue and walk away with a show bag.


Participants can register for any sessions online at
