To send a GB team to compete at the 2014 ISA world junior championships

by teamgb in Newquay TR8, Newquay TR8

It Starts With A Dream.

Every sportsman or woman, at some time in their lives, dreams about representing their country, experiencing the passion and sheer excitement of drama and competition at the highest level.

For the GB Junior Surf Team, boys and girls aged 14 to 17, this dream of high aspiration is about to come true. This group of young people, fantastic role models for their generation, have dedicated their lives to Surfing, competing across the UK and abroad, and training through the winter for selection to represent Great Britain at the International Surfing Association's World Junior Surfing Championships, in Ecuador from the 5th to 13th April 2014. With Surfing still not recognised as an Olympic sport, this is their Olympic games.

Meet Team GB Junior Surfers, surfers from the Southwest, Wales and North of England, the very best of their generation, who are to compete in U16 and U18 categories at the World Championships.

GB Junior Surf Team

To achieve their goal, the team must raise £25,000 to fund representing their country at the World Championships. They receive no government funding whatsoever and we are asking for your help to raise £10,000 towards our £25,000 target through this Crowdfunder campaign.

A Surf Nation’s Dream.

We are asking for you to support these kids so we can send out the best possible team to represent these shores. £10,000 will go a long way to make this happen and make sure the kids who really deserve to go, do go.

If everyone in the UK, who has slipped into a wetsuit in the last 12 months and gone surfing, whether as a passion, a hobby, or while on holiday, contributes a just a small amount to this cause, we will hit our target and more. Every donation counts.

Your Support will make a difference!

All donations received will go towards the cost of travel, food and lodging needed for the team to attend the World Championships. It costs roughly £2,500 to send each team member. There is no prize purse on offer. But the kids are bursting with pride to represent Team GB, our Home Nations and you.

With you behind us we can send a team to represent Great Britain.

To help us achieve this goal and thank you, our supporters, we have arranged for some amazing rewards for you: through friends, family and the unbelievably generous surfing community, including 5 nights stay for 4 people in Bali at the luxury Canggu Club, a South African adventure of a hosted surf tour and accommodation for 2, an amazing hand made Alaiia wooden surf board and we have custom boards from some of the UK's leading shapers. There's also a long weekend for 4 in a cottage in Rock, Cornwall, Team GB replica kit, surfing with the team and more.  (For more details on the accommodation packages in Bali, Cape Town and Rock please email nigeldhudson@me.com)

Surfing GB

The inspiration for this project comes from SurfingGB, surfing's National Governing Body, who have been instrumental in the development of this squad, but more importantly are working extensively to widen the opportunities for participation in surfing, and improve both its standing as a recognised sport and support facilities for surfers and surfing across the UK. Surfing GB is working hard but has yet to receive any support from the British government. For now all British teams and squads have to self- fund representing all of us at international level.

Thank You!

The Squad would like to say thank you for the generous support it has received so far from Calypso Soft Drinks and their Aqua Juice Brand, Offsure Travel Insurance, Robie Robes and Sherwin Engineering plus the fabulous rewards given by our supporters and donors.

We really hope you will help us get a British Junior team to the world championships in Ecuador by supporting our Crowdfunder campaign
