The Paddle for Life started after lifeguards from Fistral Beach held a Joe Way memorial paddle to raise money for charity in 2008.  Joe is the inspirational little boy who touched people's lives around the country and beyond.

Our aim is to raise awareness of Joe’s story and inspire people to raise money for their chosen charity.

FISTRAL BEACH SURFING SANTA CHARITY CONTEST

Written by Scott Dickinson on .


Fistral beach was the scene of festivities on Saturday 13th December with over 30 surfers taking to the water on the sunny Decembers day to compete in a seasonal surfing competition for the Joe Way Appeal.

All competitors donned Santa outfits and took foamie surfboards to the water for the festive event. With the sun shining, spectators saw seasoned competitive surfers, to those in their first contest compete in both an Open cottony for men and women and an U16 category.

Zac Milnes made his way through the heats to win the U16 category and Matt Sutherland took the win in the open.

Event organiser Jenny Briant said "everyone really got into the festive spirit with lots of Santa outfits managing to make it through the whole heat. It was great to see so many people take part in the event and raise money for the Joe Way Appeal, we are already looking forward to the events return in 2015."

The event was supported by ERA Adventures, Fistral Beach Surfing Centre, Tolcarne Beach, Bon Bon Fistral, On The Lip, Perran Signs and PJ print.

All advertisers support the Joe Way Paddle for Life and have generously given their time and products to help raise money
