Juraki News

In January 2022, Juraki Surf Culture kicked off the year with the Wayburra Surf Camp, setting up camp in Fingal Head, Northern NSW. With Covid-19 outbreaks pretty close to home and cyclone Seth knocking at our door, it was extremely challenging, but as all the participants set up their swags, there was excitement in the air. Kicking it off with a traditional welcome to country from the Slabb boys and a welcome dinner, things only got better from there. With the cyclone right off the coast, we didn't have too go far to find the perfect wave with, the "Juraki Wave Pool", cranking all week long!!! It was chest to head high all week, so everyone was surfed out everyday. When the surfers weren't in the water, they took part in various leadership activities, however, the highlight was the cultural teaching every night after dinner. 

All the surfers were ripping all week, but it was two who really stood out, not only in the water, but also in their leadership qualities. The team at Juraki were stoked to announce a special sponsorship, thanks to the incredible teams at Volcom and Aloha surfboards. Jasmine McCorquodale and Zane Silvester were the very deserving recipients. With other stand outs, Jay Campbell, being supported by Aloha Surfboards and Charlie Pell, supported from Cervus Private Wealth and Jalaan Surfboards.

 

We want thank our sponsors and supporters; Volcom, Aloha surfboards, Jalaan surfboards, Cervus Private Wealth, Lemon Tree Music and Roxy. And a special thank you to the Juraki team and our local surfing family who worked hard to make this camp so special. A huge thank you to our local, Fingal Surfing family, for giving us the waves  all week and sharing surf + culture!!
