North West Surf Club held the paddle Port Salon event in choppy cross-shore conditions on 15 August 2009. Eight hardy surfers showed up to support the RNLI. They paddled the 2 ½ km in an average time of approximately 30 minutes.
This event raised a total of €1145 for the crucial work of the RNLI.
Special mention to top fundraisers Daniel Gill and Thomas Kerr! Later in the day everyone reconvened to show further support for the RNLI at the Surfism event in Sandinos, Derry.
