OM Surf International exists for the purpose of funding world changing projects. Project OM is the main beneficiary of 10% of the profits from OM International products.

Project OM serves disadvantaged teens. The program teaches history, anthropology, ecology and environmental awareness. Participants visit different locales around the world and participate in the process of learning and teaching different cultures, human awareness and love for all of humanity. Teens learn language, cooking, resourcefulness, teamwork, and global awareness. In return the teens participate in community service projects at the locales visited.

Sounds good to us! They have a range of cool tshirts as well and we hope they'll expand to the UK in the future.

Rough Guides on the iPod

I'm surprised it's not been done before: Podscrolls are free travel guides for your iPod (one of the fancy colour/picture ones) from the people at Rough Guides. Nothing surf-useful just yet, but keep your eyes peeled, I'm sure there's more to come. Would you lot like The Surf Directory to be available like this? (Er, do I love making more work for myself?)

Under the Sun

Under the Sun

The Gold Coast vs Byron Bay as two faces of modern surfing's commercialisation and exponential growth. A nice few minutes of waves and opinions from luminaries. Hopefully it's available over here, and hopefully SurfGirl will get a review copy!

Rochelle Ballard interview

It sucks when your favourite pros retire from the Tour and disappear off the radar, so it's great to see Surfermag doing an interview with legend Rochelle Ballard. She's still as stoked as ever!

National Trust gets cool

The National Trust own half the coastline (or so it seems!) and Porthleven surf girl Robyn Davies has just got a job with them to promote surfing and the National Trust together. If that sounds a bit confusing, well, we're confused too, but rest assured we're going to get to the bottom of it! We hope to get some more info out of Robyn and will let you know all about it in the next SurfGirl.

The next issue is due out in the middle of April and we're slaving away on it now. It's going to be amazing!

Work in Indo

How miserable has it been? How much are you wishing you could be in Bali? Check this out:

Surf Guide Wanted
The surf travel company Kima wants to expand their team of surf guides and is looking for a surfer with some experience of teaching and working in a surf camp. If you are free for 3 months, have been in Indonesia before and maybe speak a bit of Indonesian, send us a picture and some information about your surfing experience. Email

Doesn't it look a million miles away?! It is!
