2015 Girls Surf Camp

2015 Girls Camp Photos

Albany Surf and SkateSurfers travelled from far and wide to converge on Bremer Bay for this year's Girl's Surf camp. As usual, Bremer Bay delivered with plenty of waves and all of it's stunning natural beauty. Light glassy conditions Saturday morning served up some dreamy little runners for the beginner and intermediate groups while the more experienced girls got to work on turning their arms into noodles surfing all morning, through the lunch break and in to the afternoon. I am not sure if it was all natural surfing or coaching talent talent but the beginner group, in a sea of fluoro green rashies, where all nailing it. I don't think I have ever seen so many girls getting to their feet in the first session in my short history of attending this camp.

You always have to tough one of the days out on the weekend and the artic blast on Sunday made the patchy sunshine of Saturday feel like the tropics. I saw kids splashing warm milo all over their face because they couldn't keep their hands still enough for it to stay in it's cup. With a tremendous display of determination most ended up enduring through the secend session. There were a lot of little personal goals to achieve and a little bit of cool weather wasn't going to get in the way.

Monday delivered the exact opposite to Sunday. Warm sunny weather and a relaxed offshore to thaw the bones out. All fuelled up on Red Emperor and chips from the pressos the night before, the orange group decided to walk over the headland... and then back again. Not sure if it was a deliberate attempt to take warming up to the extreme or if the more sedate conditions at Blossoms proved to be a little more alluring.

As the day wore on and the last session ended everyone said their goodbyes, packed their cars and chalets, lingered if they could and locked anther girls camp away in their little book of experiences. On behalf of the Boardriders, it is always a pleasure to put this camp on for all you girls, the vibe in the water is wicked, it's great to see you all take it on and hopefully you enjoyed it and progressed in your surfing. Numbers were a bit lower this year but feedback so far has been that the experience didn't suffer. Spread the work and let's make next year's bigger and better.
