One of the oldest Surf Clubs in Fiji – Vodo Ua Boardriders Club did not waste any time kick starting 2017 into gear with a 3 day Surf Camp based at Fiji Surf Co’s HQ warehouse on Sonaisali Beach, Nadi. Led by President Romeo Mckellar, a tight group of 15 kids joined the camp as an introduction to surfing and to gain water/surf confidence and skill sets. Kids came from as far as Suva / Pacific Harbor to participate. FSA head coach Porto also added valuable assistance / knowledge to the surf camp program at venues which include beach break surfing and out on boats to surf around the famous waves of Tavarua and Namotu.
The Vodo Ua Surf Camp program incorporates beach clean ups, stretching, warm ups, basic paddling / surfing skills, water safety, free surfing and learning the essentials of other board sports like skateboarding on skate ramps that can help improve kids overall surfing abilities. The Surf Camp is also being used as a platform for the other team members to form a good bond and share each others knowledge and friendship for an everlasting relationship that will push themselves and the sport of surfing to new heights in a Fijian way.
Fiji Surf Co, the first local surf company in Fiji, is sponsoring this new youth development.
