In the interests of preserving both safety and sanity in the line-ups this summer, Millerslocal got together with our local surf shops owners, shapers and surf clubs to put together a Surf Safe flyer. A late arvo beer or two at bridThis features the in's and out's of how a surf spot works, to help ou's starting out - so at least when they hit the waves they have some idea of how not to (a) cause major bodily harm to everyone else around them cos of flying boards, and (b) not piss the locals off too much.
The flyers will be handed out with every board sold to a newbie at Surf Centre and The Boardroom, which probably covers about 90% of the board sales in PE.
CYOH will be helping out with distributing the flyers at the main surf spot car parks at the beginning of the holidays, just to make sure the word gets spread far and wide!
If you have some mate's just starting out, let em know they can come grab one at Surf Centre on the beachfront if they want a quick heads up on how this whole surfing thing works.
Many thanks to local surfers Andre Clarke from Synergy Solutions and Matthew Chance from Media Mast, for doing the design and printing of the flyer, and to Dave, Dennis, Josh and Jakes for their input.
