Blue Surf School goes back to School
18 November 2015
We had an amazing first season at Newquay View Resort. The people we met and took surfing have left us with a profound sense of gratitude. Seeing someone love the water as much as we do and being a part of that is truly humbling. We just wish we could do it more. Which got us thinking about how we could use surfing to improve our local community and inspire them to venture seaward.
Then an idea formed. What if we could work with disadvantaged young people, teaching them about the water and surfing and at the same time using all of that to push them forwards towards employment or that college course that was just out of reach.
A little digging and we found out that Cornwall Council might just want to put some money behind our idea. Well,maybe.......we've got a few months of form filling and "big decisions", but lets hope that someone who makes the "big decisions" can see just how powerful surfing can be and understands that it could be powerful enough to transform young peoples lives for the better.
