THE ROXY SALT SHAKER BRINGS FEMALE SURFERS TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL SURF DAY
Women of All Ages and All Abilities are Invited to Hit the Beach on Sunday June 23
Press Release: Toronto, Ontario, June 3, 2013 – ROXY Canada is excited to announce that the ROXY Salt Shaker will take place on Canada’s west and east coast simultaneously on Sunday June 23 to celebrate International Surf Day with a beach clean-up and free surf lessons and a contest for women. With the support of Tofino Paddle and Surf, East Coast Surf School, Surfrider Foundation and SANS the day will be a chance for women of all ages and abilities, from never-before through to expert, to celebrate the sport of surfing and ocean culture.
The ROXY Salt Shaker will begin at 2:30pm local time on both the west and east coast, specifically Cox Bay in Tofino, British Columbia and Lawrencetown Beach in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. The beach clean up will take place from 2:30pm to 4pm followed by complimentary surf lessons from 4:30 to 6:30pm and conclude with an ‘expression session’ contest at 6:30pm until dark. Join Canada’s top female surfers and premier surf schools to push your surfing to the next level or to get started on what may become a life long passion!
Pre-registration for the complimentary surf lessons and contest is encouraged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration will secure your spot and will avoid any disappointment as we can only bring so many wetsuits and surfboards to the beach. Walk-ups are welcome and there will always be something to do on the beach and someone to do it with! There will be music, games, giveaways and plenty of saltiness!
For individuals who are land locked, office locked or otherwise unable to attend, you can still celebrate with us by participating in the “OceanHugger” “ROXYSaltShaker” Instagram contest. Between Thursday June 20 and Sunday June 23 show us how you are celebrating International Surf Day in Canada with surf, wave or environmental images and you could win a $500 prize pack from ROXY Canada.
