Girls' surfing movement hits Aussie beaches
Australian beaches light up with Girls Go Surfing Day
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 February, 2013 : - - Australian beaches were taken over at the weekend by more than 2000 first-time female surfers for the annual Girls Go Surfing Day. In its 23rd year, the Girls Go Surfing Day is the longest running female learn-to-surf program and encourages beginners of all ages to experience the thrill of surfing for the first time.
The program was held nationally at more than 40 schools through the Surfing Australia Surf Schools Network. Dan Butler from Walkin’ On Water surf school at Greenmount in Queensland said the Girls Go Surfing Day program was one of the school's favourite activities.
“We love holding the Girls Go Surfing Day,” Butler said. “They can just come along and have a ball with their friends in a safe environment and not worry about anyone else. “It’s also great they get to try something a bit different that they might not have thought about trying previously and enjoy it so much they want to come back for more.”
The Girls Go Surfing Day is proudly supported by Surfing Australia.
