Video: Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic 2017’s outreach programme

As part of the Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic surf competition, Tiger’s Milk sponsors an Surfing South Africa (SSA) outreach initiative, giving 60 underprivileged kids from the Muizenberg area a chance to surf and compete. Mainly, we want the kids to enjoy the day! We feed them delicious burgers and hand out medals and it’s a wonderful opportunity for all.

This initiative is coordinated by SSA Development Officer, Danielle Johnson, and took place at Surfers Corner from 10am to 1pm on Sunday, June 11th.

About 60 young surfers take part, and they all come from various community based outreach programmes  that  use surfing to change the lives of marginalised youth.   A ‘Tag Team’ format sees groups of five boys and girls surfing together as teams. In this way, organisers ensure that every participant plays a role in the project.

Although the Outreach programme is geared towards giving surfers from disadvantaged communities the opportunity to participate in a surfing contest, the main objective of the day is to have fun. Thanks to all our generous sponsors on the day.

We’ll be back in June 2018.
