Surfing For Seniors is set to hit 3 new locations in April as part of NSW Seniors Week

Surfing NSW is celebrating the second year of NSW Seniors Week by launching yet another week full of surfing at various locations throughout NSW.

There will be classes of 8 held at Maroubra Beach, Umina Beach and Tweed Coast beaches from the 6 – 13th April with experienced coaches and information on Surfing for participants.

"It is a great way to keep the spirits and health of Seniors alive, this is a great opportunity for those out there who always wanted to give surfing a go but never had the opportunity" stated Surfing for Seniors Patron Phyliss O’Donnell.

NSW Seniors Week runs from 6 to 13 April. With more than 700 events planned under the LIVE LIFE banner, it is the biggest celebration for seniors in the southern hemisphere.

"For 50 years, NSW Seniors Week has provided opportunities for older people to meet, learn something new and celebrate life," said Minister for Ageing, Kristina Keneally.

"I encourage all seniors to join the celebrations by turning up and taking advantage of the free or discounted activities happening in your area," she said.

NSW Seniors Week is funded by the NSW Government and organised by the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (DADHC) to thank and recognise older people across the State for the contributions they provide to the community.

All bookings through Surfing NSW on (02) 9349 7055.

The free official event program will be available from 14 March at registered clubs or, online at www.nswseniorsweek.com.au
