Robertsport Community Works is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Surf Liberia Contest, to be held on the weekend of 23-24 October on the surfing beach in Robertsport, wherever the waves look like they're breaking best.
Participants and volunteers will meet at the Robertsport Community Campsite cotton tree on Saturday 23 October at 9:00 am to decide which break is working best. We'll postpone to the afternoon/next morning/next afternoon if we expect conditions to markedly improve.
If you'd like to participate, send me an email. Registration for participants is $25 and you get a cool contest t-shirt inspired by a Liberian painter. Shirts will also be on sale at the contest site and though The African T-Shirt Company. All profits go directly to the RCW Surf Liberia Mentoring program. Local surfers compete for free.
We hope to organize a fun, relaxed event that showcases the local surfers' skills and sportsmanship, and to have a fun day at the beach!
