Join in the fun at this surf contest at Freshwater Beach in memory of Brent "Ernie" Wise.
The Brent Wise Surf Memorial has been organised in memory of Brent Wise, aka ‘Ernie or ‘Ern’ to those who grew up around Freshie & Curly.
Father to Jade & Zac, he loved to take them surfing at his beloved Freshwater Beach or Curl Curl, he was a member of Freshie Boardriders back in his hey day & still got out for a wave from time to time.
In April 2013, Brent was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma tumour, which was highly malignant and rapidly growing. He was given two years but lost his battle 10 months later on 11th February 2014.
The first Brent Wise Surf Memorial was held on February 14th 2015 to mark the 1 year anniversary of Brent’s death and to honour his life. The day was very successful, raising much needed funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
The contest will be hosted by Freshwater Boardriders & kicks off on Freshwater Beach at 7am. There will be 2 event categories on the day, sponsored by The Mad Hueys - an Opens & an Over 40s.
There will also be a raffle to win a surfboard on the day. Entry fee is $20 which includes a t-shirt and raffle ticket.
All movies raised on the day through contest fees & raffle tickets sold will be donated to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
