Time to Support English Surfing!
The English Surfing Federation (ESF) has finalised its selection of the English team to take part in the European Surfing Championships in Bundoran on the west coast of Ireland between September 23 and October 2 2011. Now they need the support of the surfing industry!
The team which consists of a large percentage of Newquay surfers are entering the final stages of their pre-event training and are now looking to Newquay businesses to support their mission to achieve individual and team success. As the sport receives no funding from the sports governing body, Surfing GB or from Sport England, the ESF committee has devised a win win scheme for businesses from the surfing sector and beyond to support the cream of English wave riders.
An English Surfing Federation team t-shirt is being produced which will display a logo of companies that are supporters of England’s bid for European gold. For your company to have their logo adorning the t-shirt you simply pay £100 and supply a jpeg logo of your companies logo. This is not exclusive to surf related businesses any commercial company or individual that feels they would like to support English surfing are welcomed.
For a £100 contribution, your company gets a logo on the team kit, team banner and all press releases relating to the team trip and the event. It also benefits from being able to officially class themselves as an English Surfing Federation Supporter and can use the ESF logo on their own website and promotional merchandise. Companies that have already pledged support include Snugg Wetsuits, Carve, Surfgirl and ThreeSixty Magazines and The Newquay Activity Centre. Protest Clothing have come on board as team kit sponsors for the third year in a row.
When the t-shirts are printed, each team member will be supplied with 20 t-shirts which they will sell. The money that each team member raises, they can put towards their travel and accommodation costs to get to the event. So if you don’t have the funds to sponsor the t-shirt, another way to support the team members is to buy a t-shirt from one of the squad.
The english teams entry fee and membership to the European Surfing Federation has been paid by the Rip Curl English Surfing Federation Surf School based at the Newquay Activity Centre on Headland Road in Newquay.
