EASD presents “Eddie Would Go ... Would You?”
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 28 June, 2014 - Surfing and Medicine have always been close; from John “Doc” Ball – pioneering surf photographer and Coast Guard Dentist – to the free-spirited, Dr. Dorian Paskowitz, still stoked at 93!
The European Association of Surfing Doctors (EASD) was founded in late 2011 as a not-for-profit organization to connect people through Surfing and Medicine. This year our 3rd Annual Conference “Taking Surfing Medicine to Extremes” happens in Sligo / Mullaghmore, Ireland from 9-12 + 13 September 2014. The Surfer’s Academy marks the beginning of the EASD’s Outreach Program – translating our vision of “Keeping the Surfer Healthy and Safe”.
We’ve always been there in the line-up. So we figure it’s time to drop-in and give something back. The Surfer’s Academy, the first event of its kind anywhere, is a full-day open Health Symposium for Surfers on surfing safe and staying healthy into your twilight years.
Join leading Experts in: Eye, Ear, Mind, Nutrition, Shoulder/Major-Joints, Lifeguarding, Big Wave Rescue – you name it, we’ve got them – let them take you through what you need to know and how to get the best from your surfing.
The format of the day will comprise concise (max: 15mins), high-yield, non-technical (No Jargon Please!) explanatory sessions, on topics relevant to the wellbeing of Surfers of all ages and ability, delivered by EASD Specialists.
Surf Photography Exhibition, Irish Surf Shorts, and much more throughout the day. See you ‘Out-Back’ at The Glasshouse, Sligo.
