Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 19 March, 2016 - The Play it Safe by the Water Junior Challenge will once again be giving Victorian junior surfers the chance to surf on the one of the biggest stages in surfing at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach event site.
The invitational event for Victorian male surfers under the age of 19 gives them a chance to surf at Bells Beach during the Rip Curl Pro and also helps promote key water safety messages to an at risk target market. Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson is looking forward to seeing the next crop of surfers go head to head at Bells Beach.
“This event is a critical part of our development pathway. To get the chance to surf in front of all of the structures and grandstands at Bells Beach as a junior is something these kids won’t forget. Not only will they get great surfing experience we will also be promoting water safety messages to the male teenage market”
“Males are an at risk group for drowning making up 90% of Victorian Drownings in 2014/15. This event will help promote the messages to stay safe in the water and ensure you are looking out for your mates.”
