We all just returned from a great family vacation and have reopened the Indo Jax offices. It was great to get away for a week and we had a blast! For the first time asa family we went to Disney World. The crowds were very low and we enjoyed both the Magic Kingdom and the Animal Kingdom Parks. From there we headed to the coast and went on a 7 day Caribbean Cruise with our good friends the Forts. It was incredible! The ship, “The Freedom of the Seas” was fantastic and it had so many cool things including the flow rider. The food and service were absolutely awesome. We had some fantastic shore excursions as well and Gabby and I even found some surfboards and a local guide, “Nacho” to take us out for a few great waves. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation!
I am stoked however, to be back in the office and gearing up for our 2014 surf camps, surf lessons, and charity surf camps and clinics. This year is already looking like an all time year! With quite a few sign ups already for private surf lessons, morning and half day surf camps we are looking to expand. Although our Wrightsville Beach surf programs are always at capacity, we are gearing to expand, our Topsail Island Surf Program and Oak Island Surf Program. As well our charity program is definitely getting more interest than ever. With just about every instructor returning, Indo Jax Surf School and Charities is looking stronger than ever in terms of our staff. I am so proud and honored to be able to work with our crew of incredible instructors, that keep our surf camps, surf lessons and charity surf events fun and safe! Our sponsorships are improving as well. This year we already have sponsors for our Belarus Surf Camp (Synergy Medical), our Visually Impaired and Hearing Impaired Surf Camps (Alerttile and Helen Keller Foundation), and our Boys and Girls Home of Waccammaw (Trott Nixon and Family). Right now everything is open so feel free to register via our website’s registration page or call/email me with any questions.
In other exciting news, Bound By Sea is up for Best Local Independent Film in Encore Magazine’s The Best of Wilmington. Also, I just found out that I am a finalist for the Razor Walker Award through UNCW’ education department. I am so honored and stoked! We have a couple fundraisers coming up…Feb 8th at Michael’s Seafood Restaurant in Carolina Beach and March 9th our annual Pennies 4 Pins Bowling Fundraiser.
We hope to see you all in the water!
