Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 December, 2009 : - - Torquay - A fantastic line-up of Victorias best surfers along with some passionate high profile celebrity surfers will take to the surf at Torquay Point this Saturday for the Victorian leg of the Coastalwatch Surf For Life series.
For the likes of professional surfers Nic Muscroft, Adam Robertson, Troy Brooks and Jack Perry it will be a no pressure situation but theyll still be aiming for 10 point rides as they team up with some of Australias most famous non-competitive surfers in an event that is all about fun, funds and recognising the Starlight Childrens Foundation.
Getaway star Dermott Brereton, one of AFLs toughest and greatest ever centre half forwards heads up a number of AFL surfers who will join in the action.
Adam Robertson might almost swap the prized Bell Trophy he collected at the ASP World Tour Rip Curl Pro last Easter where he placed second to team up with Brereton Robbo has been a lifelong Hawks supporter and passionately cheered for Brereton when he was a part of the Hawks golden era of multiple premierships!
I hope Im surfing in Dermies team for sure he can take care of our competitors out the back and Ill try and score the required scores said Robertson who fondly remembers Breretons style of play!
Other high profile celebs include Rhys Urlich who recently won Make Me A Super Model, Robert Dipper Dipierdomenico, Sean Doherty acclaimed author of My Brothers Keeper along with Murray Bingham and a host of others yet to be declared.
Although all in the name of charity, this will be both a fun and high quality event competitive surfers will want to win no-matter whats at stake.
Can the celebrities surf?
The best way to find out will be to join in the fun at Torquay this Saturday with the action set to begin around 10am If by chance Torquay is too small, theyll head to Jan Juc Beach as the back-up venue.
A fun and enjoyable day for a worthwhile cause.
