We're delighted to support the Jersey Surfboard Club's Surf Academy
Mourant is proud to sponsor the Mourant Surf Academy at The Jersey Surfboard Club since 2014. Surfing, and particularly youth surfing, enjoys huge popularity in Jersey and is a healthy sport that appeals to every age group, gender and standard of surfing ability.
The Mourant Surf Academy runs on a Sunday from May to July and is open to children of all levels, between the ages of 9 and 17. Each year, around 90 children take part in the eight week Academy with many learning to surf for the first time.
"The Jersey Surfboard Club has a long history of encouraging young surfers and producing numerous champions. Something that really appeals to us is the fact that the Surf Academy promotes both individual endeavour and determination, as well as mutual respect and team sportsmanship."
Simon Gould, Partner, Jersey
"We're delighted to be working with the Jersey Surfboard Club and supporting their growing Surf Academy. It's great for us to be involved in surfing which offers so much to our young Islanders. The sport encourages young surfers to respect the power of the sea, improve their general fitness, learn new skills and embrace competitiveness."
Ed Devenport, Partner, Jersey
"We're delighted for the continuous support we have from Mourant as it enables us to get children from all around the island into the water. The Mourant Surf Academy is absolutely loved by all and is a fantastic community programme that brings people together; along with providing the children taking part with many different skills. We can't thank Mourant enough for their support.
