Want to donate your pre-loved windsurf and SUP gear to a very good cause?
Then please bring it along this weekend's NSW Wavesailing event at Port Kembla 17/18 Sep so it can be used to teach the homeless and "in care" kids at steppingstonehouse.com.au/ and other youth getting into the waves.
To give you context, one of our 17 yr old kids had 4 of his brothers commit suicide before he came to Stepping Stone House in December. This lad is in the picture below and loved the "freedom" of Supping.
We are specifically looking for:
* Beginner boards (over 150 litres)
* Kiddie rigs
* SUP Paddles
* SUP boards
* Wave/freestyle boards over 90 litres
* Rigs - sails/RDM masts/booms/bases
Or if you can't make this event then please bring the gear to any of our NSWWA 2016/17 events:
• Event 1 September 17/18 2016 Port Kembla
• Event 2 October 15/16 2016 Ballina
• Event 3 November 19/20 2016 Gerroa/ Windang
• Event 4 December 10-11 2016 Wanda
• Event 5 Feb 11/12 2017 Gerroa/ Windang
• Event 6 March 4/5 2017 Teams event/Presentation Night AGM Gerroa/ Windang
or call me (Jason Juretic) on 0402 320 940 and I will ensure your gear gets to our sports future and those kids that just need a break in life.
