2015 Marja Series Djeran


Last Sunday, the 24th of May, the sun was out and the froth was high – the perfect conditions for the second Marja Series of the year!

Heaps of young frothers made their way down to the North Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club to celebrate Indigenous culture and get amongst a number of ripper activities.

The day offered over nine deadly stations – so no matter what your taste, there was something for you!

It was great to have Western Force stars Luke Burton and Oli Hoskins come down to have some fun. Some serious agility was on display in a beach rugby game that had everyone buzzing.

Aussie rules was also represented, with the lads from the Claremont Football Club conducting an AFL workshop on the beach. This is the second Marja Series that the Claremont Football Club has come down to and they were, yet again, a massive hit.

Participants had the opportunity to get involved in a number of cultural activities, which included tool making, Nyoongar language games, an Indigenous dance workshop and didgeridoo. Big ups to Leonard for teaching us about Aboriginal tool making, Billy for leading the fellas in didgeridoo and Karla Hart for getting us all dancing.

MC Trooth came down to give the frothers a taste of Hip-Hop culture. Trooth showed us the origins of rap music and gave a crash course in how to construct a deadly verse.

Some of the other activities that had everyone excited included surf lessons from Ash Pluggy and flag races for those who weren’t too keen to get salty.

"Was an epic day out, in and around the water. So stoked to be involved and share the good vibes!” – Ash Pluggy

Some mint works of art were produced under the Surfrider tent, as participants decorated reusable bags.

After the activities had finished up for the day there was some spaghetti bolognese for everyone to dig into!

"In my eyes, the second Marja Series was a huge success! The weather was perfect, the activities were awesome and everyone was frothing out all day! Definitely a testament to all the hard work from all degrees of the Marja Series team and all the amazing volunteers. Cannot wait for the next bigger and better event!” – Allanah Robinson-Cooke, Marja Series Volunteer Coordinator.
