Visit from Daniel Ross- Patagonia Ambassador

On Sunday May 5th 2019 the PLBC groms were treated to a coaching session with former CT surfer, Patagonia and One for the Planet Ambassador and big wave charger Dan Ross.  Dan is from the northern NSW coast and is in town coaching at the Saltwater Institute so we were very lucky to have him impart his vast knowledge to our members.
The kids split into two groups and received on the beach coaching and filming.  Dan spoke to them about big wave safety taken from his involvement in the Big Wave Risk Assessment group.  
Following the coaching sessions everyone gathers at the clubhouse for some food and a screening of the Patagonia documentary ‘Nevertown’.  The kids were all mesmerised and loved the opportunity to ask Dan questions.  He emphasised the importance of community and how lucky they were to be involved in such a great community.  
It was a day enjoyed by all and we can’t wait to welcome Dan back to our club.
