The experience of surfing waves can be for anyone willing to give it a go. Along with help from the Halberg Foundation, we recently got the chance to share the waves with a bunch of keen young people willing to give surfing a go, and they loved it.
Mount Maunganui was the venue and along with a volunteer support group of 20 odd, we gave people the chance to ride the waves, be that on big purpose-built boards, SUPs or specialised wave skis.
It was a super rewarding day for the participants as it was for the volunteers who gave up their time to get out there and help.
Here is a clip of the day that perfectly captures the vibe.
