Surfing Victoria Updates

Events will be heading to seven beaches this summer

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 25 October, 2015 - Torquay - Surfing Victoria announces that the Surfing for Girls presented by GHANDA will be back again in 2015, hitting seven beaches across the state in November and December. The program which has been running for over 16 years is a key component of Surfing Victoria’s strategic direction and a way to encourage stronger female participation in surfing.

Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson, can’t wait to see the next wave of female surfers out in the line up. “This program has proven to be a success over the past 16 years and it really is at the core of surfing.” “We have seen past state champions come through the program and countless of life long surfers. It really is a great program, which can provide benefits well into the future.”
“I’m looking forward to seeing a heap more girls out in the line up ripping!” The program will hit beaches from Warrnambool to Cape Conran with coaches India Payne and Matilda McLellan back to lead the program across the state. Each session is only $20 and includes a day of surfing with all participants receiving a GHANDA T-Shirt and showbag filled with heaps of prizes from sponsors!

Saturday, November 28: Warrnambool
Sunday, November 29: Ocean Grove

The 2015 Surfing for Girls is presented by GHANDA and supported by HIF Australia, Cancer Council Sunscreen and VicHealth. Participants will need to organise your own surfing equipment before the day, Surfing Victoria can provide details of hire companies in your region. A free lesson and show bag is offered to media who attend their respective beach. To book, please contact Liam Robertson on the below number.

Ghanda's beginnings of selling locally hand-printed t-shirts from the back of a car has quickly escalated into 20 plus retail stores, decorated with garments featuring detailed illustrations and colourful designs. Our growth is due in no small part to having our design and printing all under one roof. This allows us to produce what our customers want with an exceptionally quick turnaround.
What we save by producing in-house we put back into quality garments, our customers and supporting our local community.
