The Swell Mama’s started out as a group of local girls keen to get some surf time while still being able to look after their kids. With a well thought out plan of meeting for coffee to catch up, then heading down to Inverloch surf beach for waves. The girls would rotate between the water and beach babysitting duties and then finishing with more catching up over coffee.
From those humble beginnings a few of years ago, the group has now grown to around 60 members and a beach full of kids. With the emphases still being all about fun, time out and friendship, the groups association with Bass Coast Boardriders and Surfing Victoria has enabled some of its members to acquire their Bronze medallion, level one coaching qualifications and the confidence to surf other beaches including regular surf trips to Wilsons Promontory and even interstate.
Vortex is proud to be have been associated with the Swell Mama’s since the beginning. Providing such things as free board use, information nights and members discounts, we look forward to continuing a successful relationship.
If you’re interested in joining the Swell Mama’s or keen to just check things out, the group meet weekly at Inverloch Surf Beach or come into Vortex for contact numbers or any other information you need.
