Ogier helps make a splash for Healing Waves

The Jersey coastline will come alive with live music, ocean vibes, and family fun activities on Saturday 12 August as Le Rossignol Estates Surf Fest returns to St Ouen for 2023. Promising to be bigger, better and more impactful than ever before, the event is ready to make a splash with the support of platinum sponsor, Ogier.

Since its inception in 2019, the White Collar Surfing competition has been a resounding success, supporting over 80 local novice surfers as they learnt to ride the waves. Surf Fest has fostered a strong sense of community, brought joy to countless participants, and raised thousands of pounds for Healing Waves. Last year's event alone raised nearly £25,000 – a true testament to the commitment and support of the local community, which continues to grow.

So far, with the money raised from previous Surf Fests, Healing Waves has opened a brand new centre at Le Braye in St Ouen to aid the charity's incredible work. The charity enables individuals with neurological and physical disabilities to access the ocean in a safe way, so they can participate in mindful and healing water sports.

After participating in a White Collar Boxing event and a big birthday on the horizon, Jeremy Le Rossignol was inspired to set up Surf Fest and the White Collar Surfing Competition. The event – the first of its kind in the world – has been instrumental in helping individuals discover a new love for surfing, with many past participants continuing to pursue surfing following the competition.

To participate, entrants enrol in a 12-week surf programme in May, held at the Splash Surf Centre in St Ouen's Bay. Throughout the programme, participants receive progressive lessons to prepare for the final competition while also raising vital funds for Healing Waves.

This year's Surf Fest promises to be an extraordinary and inclusive family fun event, with a variety of activities and a diverse line up of music and acts across three stages. There is also a raffle with some incredible prizes to be won.

All proceeds from the event will go to Healing Waves. The ambitious goal for this year's fundraising campaign is £30,000.

Nicola Carroll, Ogier's Corporate Social Responsibility manager, said: "Ogier is delighted to be the platinum sponsor of Surf Fest and to support Healing Waves. The ocean is a source of fun and beauty for islanders and is easy to take for granted. But the sea isn't accessible to everyone. Surf Fest is a fantastic example of an inclusive event that brings together our local community, encourages islanders to try something new, and supports a cause that empowers people with disabilities to thrive, participate in a sport that positively contributes to their well-being, and enjoy the ocean."

As the sun sets on the thrilling Surf Fest competition and music festival, the celebration will continue into the night with a legendary ticketed afterparty at the Splash nightclub from 10pm. Local DJ legends together with off-island acts will keep the energy high, ensuring a memorable night for all attendees.

Everyone is invited to join this fantastic, fun-filled festival, supporting a cause that makes a real difference in the lives of many. Entry to the day's celebrations will be free. Tickets to the afterparty can be purchased online. For more information, or to purchase an afterparty ticket, visit the Surf Fest Linktree.
