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 email@example.com.
