Thanks for your help!

Calling all Surfing Mums (and Dads)

I'd be super keen to meet other surfing mums/dads with young kids for shared surf fun/babysitting sessions. Other towns have official "surfing mums" clubs, but I don't think there's anything formal going in Dunners yet. I'd be happy to set something up or keep it informal if anyone is keen. Drop me an email if this sounds good to you:
