No Waves, No Glory

Well there is of course prospective glory in other things but we shall ignore that fact. Many of you out there would be surprised to hear that nestled deep in the surrey country side, on our quaint little hilltop campus, there is a burgeoning group of wannabe beach bums. Although the beach and ocean are far from our sights, there is a growing portion of our student demographic that feel at their most alive with a board underarm and sand between their toes. This is Royal Holloway Surf Club.
We find surf where we can, don our wetsuits (or boardies if we leave for sunnier climates) and have quality time wadding in its soothing waters. This year sees the clubs activity grow, we are surfing more waves and expanding our water sport activity. With trips to Newquay (this country’s own little Surfers Paradise), our international Easter trip to Morocco and a potential summer escape (Whip out those boardies!) in the works, the surf is in no shortage.

Here in Surrey, we run wakeboarding sessions with paddle boarding on the way. Get in. All of our activity is for any waxhead be they old or new or even unaware of their calling.
While the goal is to paddle out, catch waves and have a wicked time with your dudes and gurfers, this club is just as much about the time spent out of the surf. This isn’t just a club for people to shun the world in favour of spending time on board (no qualms) but is equally for those who are just up for hangin’, laughing and having a debaucherous time. Come on, get on board and search social media for RHUL Surf Club.

“If you’re having a bad day, catch a wave.” Frosty Hesson. You wise, wise man.
