Surf comp set to help Cambodia

Local surfers have the chance to share in top prizes when the Ulladulla Boardriders join forces with two local ladies to help raise funds for the Cambodia Challenge in a surf comp this weekend.

The comp will be held this Saturday, January 10, at Rennies Beach with funds raised going to help former Ulladulla High School students Kristen Briggs and Turia Pitt in their efforts to deliver aid to Cambodia.

The girls plan to cycle more than 350 kilometres through Cambodia in September 2009, delivering aid and raising awareness about the issue faced by Cambodians.

The two girls are hoping to raise $15,000 in sponsorship in the lead up to the trip to deliver much-needed aid in Cambodia including delivering funds for child protection, health care, water, sanitation and education.

The two girls are excited about the upcoming competition and hope to see many people turn out to support the event.

“We have had a good response so far and hope to see heaps of people who don’t surf come along and watch the competition,” Kristen told the Times.

“Both Turia and I will be there throughout the day and will be collecting donations from spectators.”

With dozens of great prizes, including a Mark Rabbidge Surf Board along with gear donated by event sponsors Southern Man, O’Neill and Ripple Affect, the comp is a must enter for any local surfer.

Entry is $25 per competitors with open, under 16s and open girls' divisions to be run on the day.

Entry forms are available at or they can be collected from Southern Man, Beach Haven Holiday Resort, Dolphin Point Tourist Park, the Hot Glass Gallery in Burrill Lake and Mollymook Fine Wines and Ales.

The competition will kick off at 7am and following the day of surfing, presentations will be held at the Mollymook Surf Club.
