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.

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Sep 17, 2019

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

China ban on some textbooks seen aimed at Uighur culture

Sep 17, 2019

BEIJING — For 15 years, Yalqun Rozi skillfully navigated state bureaucracies to publish textbooks that taught classic poems and folk tales to millions of his fellow minority Uighurs in China's far western region of Xinjiang. That all changed three years ago when the ruling Communist Party launched what it says is a campaign against ethnic separatism and religious extremism in Xinjiang. Suddenly even respected public figures like Rozi were being arrested, caught up in a crackdown that critics have said amounts to cultural genocide. An estimated 1 million Uighurs have since been detained in internment camps and prisons across the...

Sep 17, 2019

HONG KONG — Hong Kong protesters threw bricks and gasoline bombs at police, who responded with tear gas, as chaotic scenes returned to the summer-long anti-government protests on Saturday for the first time in nearly two weeks. Hundreds of black-clad protesters armed with bamboo poles and baseball bats fought with police officers wielding batons on a main road following a march against "smart lampposts" that was sparked by surveillance fears. The chaotic scenes unfolded outside a police station and a nearby shopping mall as officers in riot gear faced off with protesters who set up makeshift street barricades. The violence...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Sep 17, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...
