SUNSHINE COAST COUNCIL COMMUNITY & SPORT NEWSLETTER – JUNE 2018

First Nations and Friends come and try surfing with Mudjimba Boardriders!

On Saturday 28 April 2018 at Mudjimba Beach was the Sunshine Coast’s inaugural First Nations and Friends Come and Try Surfing day.
Council would like to acknowledge Mr Brendan Wulf, Mudjimba Boardriders and the club more broadly, for their support of this event, which would not have happened without the club initiating and delivering it.

In addition, the immediate and strong support shown by our four local, first nations community organisations that sponsored the learner boards in partnership with the council, through the RAP:

Thanks also to Gubbi Gubbi Dance, Director, Lyndon Davis and family for supporting the event.

Finally, thanks to Surf in Focus who supplied their expertise in kind, to take still photos and produce a digital story of the day.

Local Indigenous surfers, Raynard Tippo and Ryan Waller are keen to develop First Nations surfing on the Sunshine Coast.
