Two Surfing Mums Launch Family Surfing Holidays Travel Service

Family Surf Co announce the launch of the UK’s first specialist travel company organising bespoke family beach holidays to bucket-list surfing destinations around the world.

Newquay, United Kingdom - May 25, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Two Cornwall-based surfing mums have launched a surf travel company to encourage more families to spend quality time together by the sea on a surfing holiday.

Hayley Lawrence and Celine Bennet founded Family Surf Co. after experiencing challenges in pursuing their own passion for surfing when travelling with young children.

The pair set about locating the finest family hotels in some of the top surfing destinations – including Portugal, Barbados, Costa Rica, Sri Lanka and Cornwall – so they can help other parents organise their perfect surf holiday.

Family Surf Co. officially launches on 20 June 2019 – International Surfing Day – offering a handpicked collection of stylish, family-friendly accommodation beside the waves.

“We love spending time in the ocean as a family, but travelling with three boys (now five, eight and ten years old), I needed decent family facilities to ensure we could all relax, have fun and be safe on our surf trips,” said co-founder Hayley Lawrence.

“Having well equipped accommodation within footsteps of surf breaks and beach life is vital, so that we can yo-yo between the surf, the sand and all the amenities needed to keep the family fuelled up and entertained.

“Although we enjoy surfing together, we’re all at different levels, so it’s essential to have expert surf instructors who cater for family sessions, solo sessions and surf guiding for more experienced surfers. Also, I want to know there’s a babysitter on hand or kids’ club if I want to go for dawn surf or a sunset session without the children.”

Co-founder Celine Bennet travelled the globe as a pro kite-surfer in her 20s, and has continued to travel extensively with her young children (now one and five years-old), surfing as much as she can.

“The reality is that it can be stressful travelling with a young family, especially if you’re driving around looking for waves, while trying to keep everyone happy. With this in mind we’ve handpicked boutique family hotels and resorts where you can slip seamlessly from your bed to your board.

“We’ve road-tested every place we sell holidays to, so we can give personal advice to families, and we send them off with a personal travel guide to the area, including surfing beaches, places to visit and recommendations of where to eat and drink. We’ve also made sure that every place is within a reasonable transfer time of the airport or ferry port. While we like to explore new and exotic destinations, there’s a limit to how far off the beaten track you want to go with a young family in tow.”

Family Surf Co. holidays aren’t purely about surfing – there’s plenty on offer for family members who don’t want to hit the waves, from active adventures to chilling out by the pool with a cocktail in hand. The handpicked portfolio includes hotels with skate parks, bike hire, football pitches and water sports from SUP to snorkelling.

As well as family time there are plenty of opportunities for grown-ups to relax and recharge, with yoga sessions, spa treatments and swanky restaurants – as well as kids’ clubs and babysitting services to ensure adults get some time for themselves.

All holidays are 100% financially protected by the Travel Trust Association. Family Surf Co. will help parents plan a bespoke family surfing holiday, including flights, car hire and transfers, and also offer personal advice and information on each destination.

Making trip planning simple and cutting out time-consuming research, they even supply with you a packing list and travel guides.

When disaster hits, Indonesia's Islamists are first to help

Jun 19, 2019

PALU, Indonesia — The flags hanging outside Anwar Ragaua's house have drawn warnings from police, but the wiry 50-year-old vows he's not taking them down. After all, the police weren't there to help when he was the sole fisherman in his village to survive the tsunami that inundated the Indonesian city of Palu at dusk on Sept. 28. Nor was the government. Nor were the aid organizations that swept into the stricken region in remote central Sulawesi. Instead, the first people to offer him hope — and a new boat — were deployed by a hardline Islamic group notorious for...

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jun 19, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...

Challenge to Indonesia vote makes big claims, weak on proof

Jun 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The court challenge to Indonesia's presidential election from the losing candidate claims that the police, intelligence agency and other state institutions were biased in favor of the incumbent, but its evidence for "massive" fraud is mainly printouts of news articles. Former General Prabowo Subianto has refused to accept the results of the April 17 election and instead declared himself the winner. Seven people died in what police say was orchestrated rioting in the capital last week after official election results confirmed President Joko Widodo had won a second term with 55.5% of the vote. Subianto's legal challenge...

China deploys Confucius in bid to boost religion controls

Jun 19, 2019

BEIJING — China has begun five-day Confucian culture immersion courses for religious leaders in the sage's hometown as part of a campaign to extend government control over faith communities through a process of sinicization. The ruling Communist Party's United Work Front Department said in a news release issued Monday that the activity was designed to ensure the primacy of traditional Chinese values above all. "To hold activities here ... is a collective tribute to excellent traditional Chinese culture and a conscious identification and integration with Chinese culture," said the release, posted on the department's website. Participants pledged to "cultivate the...

6 die in Indonesia riots; Widodo says he won't allow unrest

Jun 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesian President Joko Widodo said authorities have the volatile situation in the country's capital under control after six people died Wednesday in riots by supporters of his losing rival in last month's presidential election. The clashes began Tuesday night when supporters of former Gen. Prabowo Subianto tried to force their way into the downtown offices of the election supervisory agency and have continued unabated since then. More than two dozen vehicles were burned as rioters took over neighborhoods in central Jakarta, throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at police who responded with tear gas, water cannons and rubber...
