VB Surf Shout of the Year Trip Completed in Style at Tavarua Island in Fiji

COOLANGATTA/QLD (Wednesday 6th February 2013): It was a bittersweet moment for Cronulla’s Alecia Rudge and three of her close friends, with the VB Surf Shout of the Year coming to an end at the luxurious paradise of Tavarua Island in Fiji on the weekend.
 
The foursome was lapping up the tropical island last week.

“We all thought that Tavarua was the most amazing holiday we've ever been on,” she said.  

“We are so grateful for introducing us to such a special, special place where the island is so majestic, the surf is world class, the staff are so loveable and happy, the activities are unreal and the 20 people from all over the world that are staying on the island are so like-minded. Good friendships were formed over shared meals, drinks and group activities. It was such an awesome week.

“Thanking you VB and Surfing Australia for coordinating the trip so perfectly. We have been so affected by Tavarua; it was truly the best experience ever.”

Tavarua Island Resort General Manager Kaeo Dechape said the four surfers enjoyed their time on the island.
 
"It was a lot of fun hosting Alecia and her friends,” he said.

“They really took advantage of the great weather and all the awesome land and sea activities that the island has to offer. They left sunburnt, relaxed, and smiling!"

Rudge earned her trip to Fiji’s surfing heaven by winning the 2012 VB Surf Shout of the Year competition.

VB and Surfing Australia created the VB Surf Shout competition for Australia's 2.5 million surfers. It was an online competition exclusive to www.surfingaustralia.com/vb/ which offered the chance for Australian surfers to win a monthly prize for their best surf trip moment with their mates.

For her efforts, Rudge won a once in a lifetime surf trip for herself and three mates to Tavarua Island Resort, along with 4 Nikon digital cameras and one surf kit (surfboard, fins, legrope and boardbag).
