Bolt Blowers head to Bells this Easter

The retro surf event, featuring boards dating from no more recently than the early 1980s, will support charities One in Five and Strong Brother Strong Sister, and is using the Easter dates made available by the unfortunate cancellation of the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach due to COVID restrictions.

Surfing Victoria and the Bolt Blowers are also stoked to welcome Torquay-headquartered surf brand Rip Curl as an event partner in 2021.

“We couldn’t run the Rip Curl Pro at Bells this year, but it’s great to be able to help support such an important agenda, with a committed crew over the Easter weekend,” Rip Curl team and event manager Mark Flanagan said.

The general public is invited to attend the event with food, coffee and music playing all day along with plenty of action in the water from 8.30am on Saturday, April 3.

“We can’t wait to have the Bolt Blowers down at Bells over Easter,” Surfing Victoria chief executive officer Adam Robertson said. “The work the Bolt Blowers community have done, and continue to do, is incredible. “We are stoked to be involved and help blow mental illness out of the water!”

The Bolt Blowers Invitational is supported by Surf Coast Events, Rip Curl and Surfing Victoria.
