SurfAid #MAKEAWAVE Challenge 2022 Day 14 Update

I am proud to be an Ambassador for the SurfAid's #MakeAWave challenge. I had set out to be either surfing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, doing surf-inspired workouts or something else surf related to make a wave of impact for SurfAid for 30 days in September. For the first 7 days of the 30 day challenge I was either swimming, training on an ergo (kayaking machine), surfing or practicing yoga. Over the past week (days 8 - 14) I've been kayaking, practicing yoga and even floating in a sensory deprivation tank. So far I've raised $20 towards my goal of raisin g over $500 to help SurfAid deliver their programs. When you support my fundraising efforts you give people in remote communities connected to us through surfing a hand up, rather than a handout. SurfAid's geographical focus is on the heartlands of surfing where few visitors but surfers go, making their work unique.

SurfAid #MakeAWave 21 Day Update


I am proud to be an Ambassador for the SurfAid's #MakeAWave challenge. I had set out to be either surfing, kayaking, canoeing or swimming for 30 days in September however I'm based in Melbourne and current COVID restrictions have impacted this. For the first 7 days of the 30 day challenge I was either kayaking, training with waterfilled training equipment, getting creative or doing surf inspired workouts. Week 2 saw me take my first lay day, kayaking, weight training and I even took out an old wave rider. Over the past week (days 15 - 21) I've been kayaking, creating artworks and I took 2 lay days. 

So far I've raised $316 towards my goal of raising over $1000 to help SurfAid deliver their programs. When you support my fundraising you give people in remote communities connected to us through surfing a hand up, rather than a handout. 

SurfAid's geographical focus is on the heartlands of surfing where few visitors but surfers go, make their work unique. They specialise in working in very isolated villages where the maternal and child mortality rates are some of the highest in the world.
