GIRLS ON BOARD

GIRLS ON BOARD AT SURF SNOWDONIA

We are delighted to announce that our brand-new Girls on Board initiative will get underway on Friday 1st June 2018! Girls on Board at Surf Snowdonia will feature a busy 30-day programme of female-focused events, activities, workshops and discounts which will all be designed to get more women and girls engaged in a sport or activity they love.

Our theme is empowerment, and our ambition is to get as many women and girls as we can to come out and try something new with some of the great teams and organisations that exist in North Wales!

And it doesn’t have to be surfing or watersports related. We simply want to give you the opportunity – and the support and confidence – to be more active and enjoy yourself as part of a team, squad or group of mates.

We’ll be partnering with some awesome North Wales clubs, schools and organisations to deliver our programme, including Network She, Sported, Our Squad and The Outdoor Partnership along with many others besides.

This is an event for women and girls of all ages and abilities, from fitness novices through to professional athletes. Everyone is valued, and everyone is welcome!

We do hope you can be part of it.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF WAYS YOU CAN JOIN US:

WHY GIRLS ON BOARD?

According to research carried out by Sport Wales, there is still a huge gender gap in sport participation in the UK.

Around 2 million fewer 14-40 year-old women than men engage regularly in a sport or activity. That’s despite the fact that 75% of women and girls say they want to be more active. Confidence is often cited as the main barrier to taking part.

It seems such a waste of potential – not just of what women could achieve, but of the happiness, joy and sense of achievement they could feel. We hope our Girls On Board initiative will go some way to help bridge that gap.

WHY SURF SNOWDONIA?

Nurturing female talent in what has traditionally – but not exclusively – been a male‑dominated sport, is something we take seriously, every day of the year.

The Surf Snowdonia Surf Academy is led by an awesome woman – multiple Welsh champion Jo Dennison, but our success relies on the talent and drive of a whole bunch of wonderful women, from our expert coaches to our customer services team.

Since we opened in August 2015, we have made some great friends in the North Wales outdoor, fitness and well-being scene. Girls on Board is our opportunity to make some introductions. We hope you’ll join us.

Don’t be shy! We’d love to hear from you.
