5 “Solo” DVDs for RealSurfers – UPDATE: THEY’RE GONE – winners notified by email already

Posted on May 7th, 2009 in Shari's wanderings.

RealSurfers, I have five Solo DVDs to give away today



Solo is the true story of Andrew McAuley, a Sydney adventurer who, on January 11, 2007, set out to become the first person ever to kayak from Australia to New Zealand. After a lonely month at sea and only kilometres from his destination, his mission ended in tragedy. Sadly, his body was never recovered but his kayak was, and in it, the video tapes which documented his terrifying experience.


It says on the DVD cover, “What the sea wants, the sea will have.” Surfers, we understand that better than most.
So now, how to give them away . . .
hmmm . . .
I know!
We’ve got a new feature on the home page. The first five people who can tell me what the newest feature is, will get a Solo DVD.
Send an email to:    [email protected] with your answer in the subject line.
Hint: “Resume Health Check”
DON’T FORGET to give me your name and postal address in the email so that I can post the DVD!
Go forth on another beaut day, RealSurfers.

Back to work today? How about a gift from RealSurf?

Posted on January 12th, 2009 in Shari's wanderings.

11:15AM UPDATE: They’re gone!   —– It’s tough going back to work. And after the surf I just had a Dee Why, I feel sorry for anyone who was on a bus instead of a wave at 6:45 this morning.

So, the first 4 people who email me with a sad work story of where they were at 6:45 this morning while I was surfing get a $50 gift certificate for Surfection Mosman. I’ll post when they’re gone, er after I take another look at the beach with the visiting guests from Surfrider Foundation USA, plus our new Aussie GM, Julia.

Email me on [email protected] with the subject line “At 6:45 this morning, I was . . .”

And give me your story. If they’re funny, I’ll post them tomorrow. 🙂

Want a free Noosa Festival of Surfing DVD?

Posted on December 18th, 2008 in Shari's wanderings.

Hey RealSurfers,

How about an extra little stocking stuffer? I’ve got 10 free DVDs to give away today and tomorrow. They’re a roundup from the last Noosa Festival of Surfing. As you know, GSI sponsors it and RealSurf likes to go and hang out in Noosa for the week (we will be up in Noosa again this coming March). NFoS is the longest running surf festival in Autstralia.

So, if you’d like to look at some cool longboarding, tandem surfing, standup paddleboards and shortboards too, here’s how you get one:

1. Email [email protected] with the headline “I want a Noosa Festival of Surfing DVD”

2. In the email, tell me the headline of one article on home under “Top Stories”

3. Tell me your name and a postal address to send it to.

First 10 with correct, complete replies get DVDs. I’ll post an update when they’re gone. So . . . I’m waiting for your emails now. 🙂

Shari 🙂
