Are you the next summer surf girl?

SUMMER Surf Girl Talitha Brazier is looking for a successor.

The Rockhampton woman spent last summer raising $15,000 for Emu Park Surf Life Saving Club.

And now she's recruiting girls to take her place.

“I wasn't a surf lifesaver or a club member when I became Emu Park's Summer Surf Girl last year,” said Talitha.

“But I had a fantastic time learning how to save lives on the beach and now I'm a regular patrol member.”

The search is on for girls aged 18 and over to join the club and be the fundraising figure for the 2009/10 season.

“You don't have to be a lifesaver, but you do have to agree to train for your Bronze Medallion,” she said.

Summer Surf Girls from all over Queensland are invited to a state finals event on the Gold Coast in May.

And the state winner will become surf lifesaving's ambassador for a full year.

“It's not a beauty contest. It's about raising money and being an enthusiast for the work of lifesaving.

“I can honestly say I had a great time. I met some terrific people and it boosted my confidence.

“Raising the money was great because I know it will all be spent at the club and that it will go towards saving lives. And I learnt some essential skills and was introduced to a new lifestyle.”

If anyone is interested in becoming Emu Park's new Summer Surf Girl they should contact Talitha.

Send her an email. The address is braziertalitha@hotmail.com.
