Surfing Mums

Love parenting but miss time on your own in the ocean? Then you may have just found the perfect group for you!

With over 40 chapters all around Australia, South Australia’s very first Surfing Mums chapter was launched late last year in Moana.  Meeting at 9.30 on Mondays in Moana (SLSC carpark end), participants meet where we buddy up and swap time in the water whilst children enjoy supervised play. You are welcome to come as you are so if you are an expert or even an absolute beginner, you can surf, SUP or body board until your hearts content.

If you’ve always wanted to try surfing but haven’t quite done it yet (often because of the limitation of kids) then what an EPIC way to start the year off with potentially a new skill!

The say it takes a village to raise a child, but sometimes parenting takes a village too. Consider Surfing Mums as a salty, seaside enclave of parents swapping child-minding duties to enable each other to regain their surfing mojo, one surf swap at a time.

Surfing Mums is a not-for-profit that was found in 2008 and is only $52 a year which covers public liability, equipment purchase etc.
