WindanSea members respond to needs of aboriginal surf clubs

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 January, 2014 -- The WindanSea Surf Club, under the direction of the new 2014 board, led by Chip Hasley, will host its first fundraiser of the year to support a goodwill-ambassador tour of Fiji and Australia.

The 50 year old surf club will also be competing in the 2014 Noosa Australia Festival of Surfing, responding to local governments' call for international participation in the March 2014 event. Windansea Competitors will also donate surf gear to local surf clubs.

Register for the event, held at Birds Surf Shed.

"The Plastic Fantastic Machine is an epic documentary of the South Pacific journey once taken by some of the original Windansea Surf Club members," said the newly appointed club President, Chip Hasley, son of
Chuck Hasley founder of the Windansea Surf Club.

For a nominal amount, you can join us for a great time, get a sense of the club's rich history and help foster new cultural experiences for local and international surfers.

In 1967, the WindanSea Surf Club embarked on a unique surfing journey to various locations in the South Pacific, including Fiji and Australia to compete in an international club challenge surf contest.  The adventure ultimately became the narrative behind the movie, "The Fantastic Plastic Machine". 

The movie, released originally in 1969, features the legends that went on this journey, inspiring a new generation of surfers and ushering in the short board revolution.
