London To Dakar Charity Surfing Expedition

by on Tuesday 13th January, 2009   3771 Views

It’s all systems go for the 10th of January! The Sahara Surf team are raising money for UNICEF and Surf Aid International by driving and surfing their way from London to Dakar. For three weeks they will grab their boards, start their engines, and make the epic drive to raise money for these two worthy charities.

Which way to Dakar?

In addition to taking their low budget vehicles on an epic one-way journey across the desert, the team - all members of the London Surf Club - will go in search of legendary surf breaks along the remote Atlantic coast of West Africa.

Once they reach their goal, the cars will be auctioned off to raise money for local charities. And their surf boards won’t make the return journey either: they’ll stay with surf-hungry Senegalese kids, desperate to be in the water and to have the opportunity to be a part of this fantastic sport. Those staying on dry land can get their hands on one of a car-load of footballs (courtesy of Junior Soccer Coach) which will be given away en-route to mark the approaching 2010 World Cup.

Become a part of the adventure by following the daily blog or making a donation at SaharaSurf.co.uk (100% of money raised goes to the charities) - there will also be regular photo and video updates posted here by the team during the trip.

More Sahara Surf news and blogs right here very soon!

All the best,
