2016 BBQ & Awards

Big thankyou to everyone that came along to our final groms club session of 2016. Some great fancy dress costumes being sported by our groms (and coaches!).

What a glorious day it was for our end of season BBQ!! Thankyou to everyone who brought along food & drink (and some yummy cakes!) and of course everyone who helped carrry things & cook!

Congratulations to all our rookies who picked up their certificates from the winter lifesaving programme, and an extra big well done to Tehya – our most improved surfer this year. Our groms made it really hard to choose one winner this year as they all worked incredibly hard at their surfing with some great attitude shown even with the tricky conditions we had some weeks.

And finally a big thankyou to all our volunteers! You’ve all been a fantastic help with organising the sessions, coaching and keeping the groms safe every week!

Rookies CPR Training

The club building now has a public access defibrillator by the entrance – increasing the safety for the community here in Sennen ūüôā

We ran a CPR training session for our rookies with the mini-me manikins supplied by British Heart Foundation. Thank you BHF!

We’ll be running more first aid training sessions later in the year for our volunteers, groms and parents if anyone is interested!

Fancy Dress Surf!

A selection of our groms (and seniors) from the fancy dress surf on Sunday. Unfortunately I missed snapping a photo of them before they headed into the surf.

We had pirates, super heroes, zombies, penguins, bears and more! ¬†I was amazed at some of our groms surfing for so long with their outfits on. Sorry we didn’t get any better photos!

We’ll announce our winner at next weeks groms club!

Beach BBQ

Drowning Prevention Week

Drowning Prevention WeekAs this weeks groms coincided with Drowning Prevention Week and flat conditions at Sennen we ran a lifesaving based session.

The session started off with a briefing by Stef (head lifeguard on Sennen) where he talked to them about lifeguarding and showed them the various items of kit that the lifeguards use on a daily basis. The groms then involved themselves in completing board rescues, board races, torpedo tube rescues, swimming races and learnt other basic beach lifesaving techniques.

The session was a big success and all groms seemed to enjoy what they were learning, we will likely repeat a session like this when conditions are not favourable for surfing!
