Surf’s up at girls-only Phuket Rip Curl festival

SURFING: More than 200 girls from all over Southeast Asia will gather in Phuket for Rip Curl’s annual ‘Girls Go Surfing Day’ festival, being held from September 6-8, at Kata beach.

Friday 23 August 2013, 05:22PM

Over three days and two nights, attendees will have the chance to learn how to surf with professional surfers from Australia and Bali; take part in all day beach fun, including art, contests, shopping, games, health and beauty activities; and take to the water on fly-boards and jet-skis.

They will also enjoy a yacht trip out on the Andaman Sea; take part in the sunset opening ceremony at Sri Panwa; join the two night exclusive party at Sri Panwa with local DJs Pichy, Cleo-P and the CMYK crew; and for one night only, party with famous French soul and funk DJ and producer Onra.

If you want to be a Rip Curl surfer, you’ll need to do one of the following: Receive an invite from Rip Curl and Cheeze magazine; be the winner of Rip Curl games at facebook/ripcurlthailand; or buy a ticket for B900 on Saturday September 7 at Kata beach to get a full day surf lesson, access to all activities and an invite to the closing party ceremony. Be there or be square!
