Do you love long days at the beach? Surfing, yoga, beach walks and marine adventures?

Are you passionate about protecting our local marine environment and reducing your impact?

Come visit our team of surfers, environmental scientists and ocean lovers as we Surf for the Sea this summer on Torquay Surf Beach, January 20th 8:45am to 4:30pm.

Surf for the Sea is an exciting new Free event dedicated to promoting a shared passion for protecting the Surf Coasts marine and coastal environment, plastic-free living, a healthy, sustainable lifestyle and ocean adventures. This special event is brought to you by local marine scientist & surfer Zoe Strapp and a collection of local businesses, including sustainable swimwear brand Akua Oceanwear, Sea Earth Adventures, The Travelling Yogis, Senors Restaurant Pat Campbell and many more.

The day will be filled with everything from two free surf lessons on Torquays iconic surf beach, a free yoga class for all ages and abilities, acoustic music by the sea with Pat Campbell, beach clean-up walk, free eco giveaways worth over $400 and lots of amazing interactive information on how you can help explore and save the beauty of our Surf Coasts stunning marine coastline. Blessed with some of the world’s most stunning and iconic beach’s and surf breaks, home to over 12,000 marine species and plants, many that are endemic to these special waters, along no more than 300km of rugged coast line, this irreplaceable marine environment needs our help today.

Currently more than 8 millions tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year, with 50% of all plastics only being used once. Its time for us to be the change and to say no to plastic and I believe there is no better way to spread the word then by diving into all the ocean has to offer, from surfing to beach walks and igniting a passion worldwide for its future protection.

So stop by on Saturday Jan 20th and join in on our exciting free beach activates, explore how you can say no to plastic, win an amazing eco giveaway or just enjoy some music by the sea! There something for everyone
