2009 Girl Jam Bodyboarding 

This summer heralds the birth of Girl Jam – the UK’s first all-female bodyboarding event aimed at bringing girls together from across the country to surf and share their skills.

The event is open to EVERYONE, whether you are ripping it up around the globe or just want to try something new.

The event is being held on July 12th at Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall in association with Rob Barbers Bodyboard School (www.robbarber.com - 01637 879 571) and supported by Three Sixty Magazine (www.orcasurf.co.uk/threesixty) - starting at 10am, meeting at the Carnmarth Hotel.

We are actively seeking more sponsorship and funding for the event.

There is loads of great stuff lined up for the day – a morning coaching session to kick the day with our event photographer and videographer with a video analysis session afterwards.

After lunch and beach games (volleyball anyone?) it’s back in the water for a free-surf, all finished up with a great BBQ and bodyboarding DVD’s. There will also be goody bags and prizes for those involved.
