The Surfing for Girls Program arrives at Sandy Point

Sandy Point, VIC/AUS (Thursday 30th November 2017): The Surfing for Girls program arrived in Sandy Point today giving over 40 girls from surrounding schools the chance to go surfing and learn water safety skills for summer.


Including girls from Yarrum Secondary College and Sth Gippsland Secondary, participants arrived to perfect small, clean waves and warm weather.


“It was awesome to spend some time in the water with all of these girls” said lead role model Rikki Bell-Warren.


“The program is a fantastic initiative that gives everyone really important water safety skills for summer and also some new surfing skills.”


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.
