Surfing for Farmers 2021-22 Season

Monday, February 14, 2022

We're stoked to be part of Surfing for Farmers - a rural support initiative that's been growing around Aotearoa since 2018. We're a 'local legends' sponsor at a number of their programmes around the North Island. As well as helping with the beers and the snags, we help fund the equipment and provide some swag. 


"At our last session it was awesome (and moving) to see many of our Farmers / Growers bring their families to share the experience. While some were local, many travelled great distances e.g. Matamata and Morrinsville.  This really demonstrates the magnitude of the initiative and how Surfing for Farmers is really making a positive impact on the Health and Well Being of our Farmers and Growers. The goody bags that you sent were greatly appreciated - the Farmers and Growers were getting good use of their Dry Bags during the season."

"Powerco’s sponsorship has enabled Surfing for Farmers to purchase surfboards and wetsuits for some of the more remote regions like the Wairarapa.  Thanks to the sponsorship our local branch now has everything we need to provide a free lesson for our farmers.  The sponsorship also helps with the weekly running of the events and keeps our farmers well fed after a surf!"
