Use your surfing to help others. Join in with North Wollongong Christian Surfers as they raise ongoing sponsorship in the education of five children with Compassion (Philippines, Indonesia, Kenya) and contribute thousands more dollars towards unsponsored children the world over. All cash donations will go to Project Purpose – Waves for Water.
Anyone who wants to have a go, as long as they are of high school age (with permission) and above. Younger participants are able to paddle with direct parental supervision. We have had age ranges from 10 to 60 in previous paddles.
Stay tuned for the 2018 date!
Secure a rescue or racing board, stand-up paddle board or surf ski/kayak. Rubber Duckie and jet-ski support, along with larger boats, will accompany us and paddlers can rest on board. A support vehicle on land will be available driving alongside and paddlers can exit the water at any point. Mobile phone contact is maintained throughout.
Access a board or ski (contact your local SLSC via a member). On the day bring sunscreen; food and water; rash shirt or light wetsuit (a full steamer will likely be far too warm!). A BBQ lunch will be provided at completion on the beach.
If you are under 18 you will need to have a parent or guardian sign a waiver. Waivers will be available on the morning, but if your parent or guardian is not dropping you off, please make sure you download and print the waiver and have it signed and with you or you will not be able to paddle. Download the waiver here.
ARE YOU READY?
Here’s a helpful checklist:
- Wetsuit or rash vest (it can get cold, but that water is really warm right now!)
- Water and snacks (to store on the boats and consume in the water, yum!)
- Sunscreen (even if it’s raining!)
- Goggles (we’re serious, consider bringing some!)
- All cash donations (must be collected when you sign in!)
- Signed waiver form (if you’re under 18 this is a must!)
