Catching Waves With Pro Surfer Monty Tait


The Weave Kool Kids Club arrived at Maroubra Beach for the weekly Aboriginal Surfing Program.  Waiting for us was the NSW State Junior Surfing Champion and Maroubra local, Monty Tait and our special guest Ben.  Ben received a "surfing experience with Monty Tait and the Kool Kids", after being awarded Employee of the Month at DDB. DDB won this experience with the Kool Kids Club through their generous bidding at the Telstra Team fundriaser night in June this year. 

The kids were extremely excited to meet both Monty and Ben and thought that surfing alongside them was really "kool".

Monty and Ben were awesome in helping the kids carry their boards, surf and chatting about the afternoon they all had together.

Monty was very impressed with how well the Kool Kids surfed and handled themselves in the ocean.  He was so moved by the experience that he came to the Maroubra Board Riders presentation to support Kool Kids, and donated two of his personal competition boards to the Kool Kids, he also donated his sponsored shirt Vissla to all the kids. 

A massive thank you and shout out to Surfing NSW who put us in contact with Monty, to Ben for joining the Kool Kids and being such a cool guy and DDB for their generous bidding, Let’s Go Surfing for the lesson and, of course, the man himself Monty Tait.

Once again, our local community pulled together for an amazing afternoon so we could all do what we love, – SURF.

All of this would not be possible without the continued support we receive from Adele and David at Allsorts Fitness and Wellbeing Centre who ensure the kids are safe in the water by assisting the Kool Kids swimming program. Surfing NSW, Hayley you are amazing and thank you for always thinking about the Weave Kool Kids when opportunities arise.
