‘Earthwave Beach Festival’ is an annual event where fellow ocean-lovers come together and attempt to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) for ‘The Most Surfers on a Wave’.
This year Earthwave have decided to add another angle, one for the whole family to enjoy; they have gone ahead and registered the GWR attempt for ‘The World’s Largest Bikini Pararde’!
Earthwave have partnered with Good Times Events who will be looking after the Pavilion where there will be entertainment, music, a bar, food, exhibits, prize giving, comedians competitions and much much more.
Diarise the 27th September 2015 for the beach-lifestyle event of the year!
Want to learn how to surf and get children from disadvantaged communities out the back? Surfpop is building a bridge between crime and drugs, and the love for surfing and the ocean.
Daniel Botha, founder of Surfpop, aims to change the life of underprivileged children born amidst gangsterism, violence and ghettos. His drive involves hope, compassion, smiles, waves, and business, too.
“We want to share surfing, and the lifestyle and culture it offers with others and have them experience the stoke,” explains Botha, who owns his surf shack in Muizenberg, Cape Town.
“To make a positive difference in society by using surfing as a tool to change the lives of the Surfpop children, and make them ambassadors in their communities to help enlighten others.”
The volunteer outreach program invites beginner surfers to share their time with children between the ages of 8-10 and work with them until they are more or less 15-16.
In four weeks, you’ll be introduced to the sport of surfing, explore Cape Town, help children in the water, and relax at the backpackers. 2500
