Rip Curl Girls Go Surfing Day

The Rip Curl Girls Go Surfing Day dates have been officially announced and will run on the weekend of November 28-29 at over 60 beaches around Australia.

Now in its 19th year of operation the national event is a huge weekend on the surfing calendar, and provides an opportunity for females to take part in a professional surf lesson in the lead-up to summer.

Two-time ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore is an enthusiastic ambassador for the program that endorses surfing as a healthy, fun and rewarding way to keep fit for girls of all ages.

“Rip Curl’s Girls Go Surfing Day is a really positive program, it’s important for raising awareness of female surfing and getting girls in the water!” said Gilmore.

“It’s also a good chance for you to have a fun day at the beach with your mates and to hit the surf in a safe environment!” continued Gilmore.
