This year as part of our senior Outdoor Pursuits group we travelled down to Riverton to experience three days of surfing and paddle boarding. We were split into two groups on the first day; one group headed off to Colac Bay to learn the fundamentals of surfing with the master, Jess Terrell. The other group was off into the estuary paddle boarding with Wayne. Over the three days there was lots of falling off the boards and feeling defeated but everyone showed great persistence by overcoming their problems and getting back on their boards or paddle boards. The days went by in a flash thanks to Mr Coleman organising such a fun filled and awesome trip. On the last morning we headed off to Monkey Island for assessments. Everyone was rearing to go until the doors of the vans were opened and we were rudely greeted with a freezing SW wind. However the wind was soon conquered and everyone was in the water showing off what they had learnt in the past days. The trip home was very quiet. written by  Jake Phillips
