The Ron Sedgwick Memorial Award
for Soul Surfer of the Year

This Years Soul Surfer Award goes to Sara Bevan for her encouragement and inspiration

A well deserved win for Sara, most would agree.
The award is presented by Surf4theSoul to the nominated candidate who receives the most votes from the club members for their inspiration to others, their dedication to surfing and their attitude both in and out of the water.
Sara is always there encouraging others to just do it, enjoy it and always has a great big smile on her face for all who surf with her. She’s a credit to the Club and a great inspirer and role model for all the ladies who surf, or aspire to.
She’s the first one to encourage you to get in, and she’s the first one to share the waves with you.. Even surfing Shanklin Stink Pot on a 2ft sloppy day was great fun with her while were on the Island.. And as one of the island surfers said to me.. Sara’s the epitomy of Soul Surfing.. Her smile says it all..she just loves it and makes everyone else enjoy it, just by being in the water with her.

The contest was closely called with other nominee’s such as Darren Hall coming a very close second. It was said of Darren, he has a great personality, Very keen Surfer in all conditions, Friendly in and out of the water, One of the nicest guys around, I couldn’t agree more.. Well done Darren.
