Learn to Surf News update!
How good was this weekend! (minus the short SHARP storm Saturday lunchtime). Almost the perfect combination, fun waves with sunshine – looks like Summer is just around the corner! Got some great photos through the week and some awesome ones from the weekend, check them out!
I will say it again, for anyone who wants to practice what they have learnt at camp, I highly recommend Cronulla beach as it is a short distance away from the city and it can be quiet when everywhere else is crowded. The Rip Curl store there has soft board hire for $20 a day and demo board hire for $40 a day! If anyone wants to have a look at the boards in the city, come and see us in the Rip Curl store on Market St.
