Inverloch turns it on
INVERLOCH turned on great surfing weather on Saturday for over 50 girls who participated in the Surfing for Girls program.
Blistering sunshine greeted the girls who were all there for a day out at the beach.
The Surfing for Girls program that has been running for 16 years and heads to seven locations across the state.
Lead coach Ruby Campbell was rapt with the turnout.
Campbell said, “It was awesome to see so many girls at the beach today!
“They were all having so much fun and enjoying the time in the ocean.”
The day included a water safety lesson, how to complete a board rescue and a surf lesson.
Each participant walked away from the day with a presenter’s t-shirt and prize pack and there were many spot prizes throughout the day.
