My name is Keshia Eyre, I'm 18 years old and a profesional surfer from Manchester England. I'm currently the under 18's European Champion and I need your help to join the Qualifying Series in 2015.
I started surfing when I was 13 years old and haven't stopped since, its what I live for and have dedicated my entire life to. I hope to compete and surf the rest of my life but i need help doing so.
Im trying To raise funds to cover traveling costs as well as entry fees for the World qualification events, for next year
The WQS (World Qualification Series) is a surf tour all around the world where the best men and women compete for a spot amongst the top 16. It's the most important series of events and its how you get a chance at qualify for the WCT (World Class Tour). For anyone wanting to make a career out of surfing, its an amazing tour, however it involves a lot of traveling which is why i am here asking for your help.
The events go from, China, Australia, New Zealand, California, Mexico, France, Spain and Brazil, its a lot of traveling and you need a budget to do so, I hope I can count on your help to allow me to live my dream to go and do the WQS's around the world and represent The UK while doing so.
The reason the tour is so important is that, without going to all the International events, you can not get enough points to ever qualify for the World Tour. If I stay in Europe i could possibly become European Champion in other age divisions but I would like to be able to have the opportunity to fight for a bigger title and be at the top of my game competing with the best in the World.
Why it's important to me
Most surfers that compete have the dream to make the world tour, we dedicate everything we have to making it in the surfing world and with your help I could be the only female representing the UK on tour. If I succeed there is a possibility of girls in the UK being encouraged and motivated by it and realise that it is possible to take it to the World Tour, which is my ultimate dream. All the help you give me will mean the world to me and you will be helping me get one step closer.
Anything donated will help and i will appreciate it all :)
