With only a few days to go till the next instalment of East Coast Visions we wanted to pull together a few of the prizes on offer for the 2018 fundraising raffle. This list will grow as additional prizes are confirmed.
Big thanks to all of our contributors for helping us to give a little more back to the charities we’re supporting this time around.
First up, our main prize- the amazing surfboard made by Glenn Nary at Visionary Surfboards.
The only thing missing from the photograph above is thankfully being provided by the kind folks at #Koalition who have provided a fin fit for Duke Kahanamoku himself to get you out in the water with a huge grin on your face. What a combination!
Supporting us since day one, Northcore have kindly donated an excellent Beach Basha Pro changing robe & the arguably even more essential Surf Shields ear plugs, which are a must have for cold water surfers wanting to avoid Surfer’s ear.
New supporters of the event Montane have this excellent backpack on offer:
For the second time The Lost Explorer have contributed to the raffle, this time with a gift pack full of things to help you survive a serious adventure. Featuring three of the best protective creams available, covering germ protection, insect repellant, skin repairs and bumps & bites on the road. Protection for life outdoors. The Lost Explorer’s ‘Guide to Living Curiously’ is also included, and along with more brand info it’s also got all the details of these environmentally sound products. With a beach bag to keep them in this is a special prize with limited availability in the UK.
Our Venue for the April 2018 edition is the fantastic TyneBank Brewery, and they have generously not only provided this amazing space but have also given us some of their amazing beer to give away!
Contributors Wall is a space inside TyneBank Brewery which will feature Art and Photography which has been specially curated for the event. Every piece on the wall will be raffled off on the night to raise money for the charities we’re supporting.
Carve Magazine is the UK’s foremost Surf publication, and they have given us another stellar prize with a subscription to the magazine, plus a couple of Carve T-Shirts.
MagicSeaweed is the forecasting service which is most used by Surfers in the UK, and if you really want all the information on what’s happening in the water you need the Pro account. We’re delighted to have two of them to give away for free!
Anto Baird’s photography on his expedition to South Georgia is up in Exhibition format, and you can take away one of the prints on Friday 20th. From the same place as the BBC’s Blue Planet, come and pick up a penguin…!
South Shields surf school are offering the gift that keep giving: surf lessons! Full details on the flyer below, and a great opportunity to get out in the water with a professional surf instructor.
