BE AN ACTIVE PART OF SAS’S PROTECT OUR WAVES CAMPAIGN ON INTERNATIONAL SURF DAY.

We need you to come along to the first action of our new Protect Our Waves (POW) campaign.  Simply turn up to Kimmeridge Bay (directions below) with your wetsuit and board at 10am on Saturday the 20th of June, International Surfing Day and show the Secretary Of State for Defence how important waves are to surfers and waveriders.  This is your chance to be an active part of a solution-based campaign protecting waves at The Gathering.

The Gathering will be a mass paddle out at Kimmeridge to demonstrate how significant and passionate the UK’s surfing and wave-riding communities are, not least local Bournemouth and Dorset surfers.  Winning this campaign will set a strong precedent for protection of all waves and all waveriders’ rights to access them, so all surfers have a vested interest!  The Gathering will form the foundations for the Broadbench campaign and we need the foundations to be as strong as possible. We need you to attend!
Broadbench is a quality wave in Kimmeridge Bay, described by many as one of Britain’s best.  Unfortunately it falls right on the outer boundary of a MoD firing range.  Obviously SAS are not asking the MoD to reduce their use of this important firing range. However, there is a compromise that will ensure surfers and waveriders can have 100% access to Broadbench without impacting on the MoD’s full use of the firing range.
For more information contact Andy on 01872 555 952 or 07711 767 548 or email andy@sas.org.uk
Parking is £4 at Kimmeridge Bay.  Directions below.
Head to Wareham, Dorset.
From Wareham it’s a 7.7 mile drive (16 minutes approx)
Head south out of Wareham on the B3075 for approximately 1.3 miles
At the roundabout take the second exit onto Furzebrook Road
Continue on Furzebrook Road for 3 miles then take a right onto an unmarked road
Follow this road for just over a mile and then take a left
Continue for another mile then another right turn followed by an immediate right turn again
Continue for another mile until you see the big grass car park on the right hand side
Look out for loads of surfers, wind surfers and kite surfers, the Surfers Against Sewage tent and signs!
