The 5th Annual Women’s “Expression Session”
As August begins and you schedule out your last remaining weekends of summer fun, don’t forget to put the 5th Annual Women’s Expression Session on your calendar for Saturday, August 4th, at Agate Beach in Newport.
The event is co-hosted by the Northwest Wahines surf collective, and the Surfrider Foundation, as a celebration of the voice women have in our surf culture. This special day is spent sharing the beach with our community. Women of all ages, men/boys (in bikinis/wig over their wetsuits) are invited to participate in free expression surf sessions and other festivities, while wearing outlandish costumes.
A free surf lesson will be offered by Pro Surfer Kelly Potts, who is traveling from Maui, Hawaii. Boards are provided, but bring your own wetsuits!
Surfrider Foundation will be leading the beach clean-up and providing important information about their recent efforts in environmental campaigning.
Prizes will be awarded for: Keenest Vibe, Most Creative Maneuver, Most Stylish Costume, Sexiest SheMale, Bombest Grom, and Gnarliest Wipeout.
The sponsors for the event make this day possible and provide items for the raffle. Rob Russo has hand-shaped and donated a 7’ Egg surfboard. Raffle tickets available for purchase at the beach, but you must be present at the time of the drawing to win!
The event is free to participants, but donations are appreciated. For details about the event or to sign up as a volunteer or participant go to: https://northwestwahines.wixsite.com/northwestwahines
Donations can be made on the website as well! Proceeds for the event will continue to fund the Wave Warrior surfer girls camps and mentoring program.
Following the event Cafe Mundo will be hosting an all ages reggae concert featuring ZuGh.
