Rip Curl Girls Go Surfing Day: Over 6000 girls and women are expected to hit the water to learn to surf

Rip Curl Girls Go Surfing Day: Over 6000 girls and women are expected to hit the water to learn to surf

The annual event, now in its 15th year could see approximately 6,000 girls around Australia taking their first step in the iconic sport at one of 65 surfschools participating in the event. Last year around 5,900 took part and with the interest in women’s surfing growing all the time, it would not surprise organisers that the 6,000 barrier is broken for the first time.

Surfing Australia’s CEO Mario Agius encourages girls who have never had a go at surfing but always wanted to, to take advantage of the two day national event. “Women and girls surfing is one of the major growth areas in surfing today and this partnership between our licensed surfschools and Rip Curl opens the door to any girl who wants to try surfing. Our Surfschools Worldwide network will provide lessons over the two days in a safe environment where the girls will learn the basics of how to surf while they are having a great time”.

“Surfing is a great sport for our young Aussie girls. It’s outdoor on our beautiful beaches, it’s healthy and as the surfing industry grows, it can also be a career path as twice World Junior Champion, Stephanie Gilmore as shown.” Mario Agius went on to say.

A full list of Surfing Australia Surfschools that are participating in the event are listed on the event page on the Surfing Australia website. Visit www.surfingaustralia.com and then follow the link on our homepage.

Cost of a lesson is $40 for 1.5 to 2 hours depending on conditions on the beach over the weekend.
