WADANDI surfING ACADEMY
Following the vision of Wadandi Elders the late George Webb and Vilma Webb, who believed that Aboriginal Communities should gather strength through sharing Culture between themselves and the wider non-Indigenous community, we have come together to bring back the Wadandi Surf event to the heart of Wadandi Boodja, salt water peoples place where the river meets the sea, to promote the healthy lifestyle and enjoyment of surfing amongst the first nations people.
Through the development of genuine partnerships, the Undalup Association together with Surfing WA and Josh Palmateer’s Surf Academy, presented the “Wadandi Surf Academy”. A six week workshop for the local Indigenous Youth from the regions High Schools, who participate in the surfing workshops with the ultimate goal of competing in future Indigenous surfing events. This all-inclusive program will help introduce the Koolunga’s in surfing and at the same time reconnect them with their Culture.
