We are super stoked and very excited that we can use surfing for social benefits and social help. We love that we can host surfing days for people that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to do it. For us surfing is so much more than a sport. We are so appreciative that we are able to give back to the community through our WoW Community and Charity Programs. On the 18th of December, we hosted an afternoon of surfing for children from The Smith Family.
The smiles and laughs and the good times they had made it such a worthwhile cause and one that we are so happy we put on.
It is also so fantastic to talk to parents and hear some of the hardships the kids have gone through and then get feedback saying how much of a positive experience and positive effect the surfing lesson had on their children. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t what we hoped for but it didn’t deter a large number of kids from having a blast and getting a good tally of waves.
We were also really appreciative of the support given to us from Aqua Luna Media who gave us a heap of the sensational surfing magazine White Horses and Annabel Trends who gave us boxes of Buddha Balm Lip Balm to give to the children as an extra bonus.
We are lucky that we are in a position where we can offer experiences like this to bring smiles to kids faces and give them an afternoon of fun.
Here is some feedback we had from parents. Reading these makes it so rewarding and makes put on the sessions all that more worthwhile!
