We did it
On 8th May 2015 we successfully raised £1,135 with 37 supporters in 42 days

New stretch target

Wow! Thanks for your amazing support on reaching the targeted funds, but you can still help to do more good work.

Any extra money raised will be used to:

1.  To subsidise the coach/instructor training I'll be running for the local people in Sayulita, Mexico, where the Paddleboard world champs are. This initiative will allow them make an income training people to surf and SUP safely.

2. Any remaining funds I'll help cover some of the event expenses for the other Team GB members.

 

Thanks for your support!


Project aim

I'm representing Great Britain in the ISA Paddleboard World Champs this May in Mexico. I'm offering some great rewards for your support!

About the project

Hi! my name's Andy Joyce, Director of Surf Steps, a surf and paddleboard school based on Bournemouth Beach front, which has been running since 2005.

I'm really lucky to work in watersports as they are also my passion. Part of this is Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), especially racing. After a very sucessful season last year, I was privileged to be selected to represent Great Britian as part of our national team at the ISA World paddleboard champs in Mexico, 10-17th May this year.

SUP Team GB for Mexico (L-R) Ollie, Holly, Marie, Glynn and Andy!

 

The reason I'm asking the community for support is because SUP is a new, but growing sport with no external funding. The funds I raise will be used to cover the cost of flights, accommodation, event registration, and getting my 12'6" raceboard there!

Have a look at the pledges, if you like the rewards come and help me get to Mexico!
