We’re totally blessed in Cornwall to have awesome beaches and great waves right on our doorsteps however, for whatever reason, there are still lots of girls who have never tried the exhilarating sport of surfing.
This summer top surfing brand Roxy will be opening up the waves for them and giving them a great chance to get on board as they bring a host of inspiration female surfing pros and a lot of fun to Fistral Beach in Newquay on the 1st and 2nd August.
The Roxy ‘Shimmer Surf Days’ have been especially designed for girls and are an ideal opportunity for complete beginners and Cornish intermediate female surfers to access the waves and new surfing techniques. Joining the team at Fistral will be Newquay based pros Candice O’Donnell and Holly Donnelly as well as top female French surfer Sophie Helier.
They’ll be on hand all day to provide assistance, coaching and hints and tips on what it takes to be a professional surfer. Not only will all the attending girls get amazing surf instruction, they will also get a cool, bumper Roxy goodie bag stuffed full with the latest Roxy gear.
The Roxy team already have their home base in Newquay at the Surfing Life Boarding House and they are involved in the development of local female surfers through their sponsorship of local girls Sarah Bentley, Candice and Holly and the talent team is always on the look out for hot Cornwall based female talent for their team.
Roxy also works with their head instructor and two times European Champion, Grishka Roberts to help continually encourage new female surfers into the water and develop their skills.
The Roxy Shimmer team is on a tour of the UK this July and August and before arriving in Newquay will be calling in at Bournemouth, Porthcawl in Wales and Portrush in Northern Ireland. The surf sessions all follow the same format beginning at 10am with a surfing lesson in the morning before a healthy lunch is provided. In the afternoon girls will have a special surf yoga lesson, toning all the core muscles necessary for surfing.
After yoga, the surf chicks will feel energized and ready to kick back in front of the inspirational Roxy film ‘Shimmer’ before heading home with their fab Roxy goodie bag over their arms.
The whole day of being a surf goddess costs no more than a normal half day surf lesson at a great value price of £25. Boards and female specific Roxy wetsuits will also be supplied for no extra cost and all ages and abilities are catered for to make the experience as fun, safe and action packed as possible.
Michelle Noschese, Marketing Manager for Roxy UK says, “We’re really looking forward to our final destination, Newquay because Newquay, with its great vibe, always feels like home for us and Fistral Beach is one of the best places for surfing. Our Shimmer day has been designed specifically for girls because females work differently in the water and our lessons will particularly focus on the best technique for girls.
We’ll focus on a number of specific exercises to help them get up and get them out in the waves and having a wicked time as they learn and progress.” With a mix of female pro surfers, yoga, all girl surf films plus a load of Roxy freebies, the day is sure to be a blast. Make sure you book your space before it’s too late!
