The Scottish Surfing Federation hope to send a Scotland team to EuroSurf in Portugal in July and the team need your help in order to help cover the costs of getting there to fly the flag for Scotland.
The team have to cover competition entry fees (£1000), accommodation (£2000) and airfares (£1500) as a minimum plus all the other associated expenses from travelling to the event. Any unused funds will be rolled over to the Scotland team travelling to 2020 events.
With this Crowdfunder we hope to meet our target to help subsidise accommodation costs to make the trip affordable for our athletes so they can focus on getting the best result for Scotland. Pledgers get great rewards in exchange for donations to the team and if any companies would be interested in becoming a main sponsor for the Scottish National Team please get in touch. Also if any companies would like to donate product as rewards for the crowdfunder please also get in touch as these would be greatly appreciated.
The team will be made up of - 3 ladies, 3 men, 2 longboarders (one male one female), a judge (Brendon Ferrier), filmer (Malcolm Anderson) and a head coach (Chris Clarke). Results from The Scottish National Surfing Championships 2019 in Thurso were used as part of the team selection criteria.

1. Mark Boyd (North Shore Surf Club)
