The Queen of Surf Day, Newquay in Cornwall
Newquay in Cornwall, the laid-back and beach drenched capital of the British surf scene, will for the fifth year be hosting The Queen of the Surf – an all women’s surf day on Sunday 19th July in aid of Cancer Research UK.
With the stunning backdrop of Newquay’s famous surf spot, Fistral beach, the day will be a chance for women to learn the basics or improve their surfing technique with top instructors and whilst having fun will be able to give something back to such a worthwhile charity.
The ‘Queen of the Surf’ day is being organised by Hibiscus Surf School and sponsored by Sola UK who have kindly donated goody bags for each of the women attending to take away as a reward for their hard days surfing.
Each event will include over 4 hours worth of tuition with highly experienced instructors in small groups, which will be separated into beginners and improvers so each surfer can get the most out of the lessons. There will also be time for a well-deserved lunch break and presentation at the end of the day. Each group will be filmed and a free DVD presented to each surf student as a lasting memory of their day and as a way of tracking their progress and ability. Prizes will be awarded, kindly sponsored by local companies.
Frances Carter from Hibiscus Surf School said "This is the fifth year we have organised the event and have raised nearly £2000 for research into breast cancer. We aim to make it fun for all the family but more importantly all profits raised will be donated to Cancer Research UK"
Cancer Research UK is the leading funder of research into breast cancer in Britain, where 1 in 9 women develop breast cancer at some point in their lives. The good news is that thanks to better detection and treatments 2 out of 3 women now survive the experience. However with so much still to be done, support through events like this is vital to breast cancer patients now and in the future.
The date for the ‘Queen of the surf’ event is Sunday 19th July 2009 with the surf lessons being held on South Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall.
The cost to attend the ‘Queen of the surf’ day is £50.
