The 2012 Girls Go Surfing Day returns this January with more than 6000 female participants Australia-wide!

The program which runs from January 21-22 encourages non-surfers and beginners of all ages to get out in the water with their friends and enjoy a day of fun, fitness, surfing and sun.

A healthy lifestyle of fitness, nutrition and wellbeing is so important, and so the Girls Go Surfing Day has teamed up with Aussie teen surfing sensation Nikki van Dijk, to spread the word.

"It's such a fun program for girls to get into, especially young ones," Nikki said. "It's the right program to allow the girls to get together with their friends, have fun and learn in a safe environment and also not worry about what the boys have to say."

DOLLY's Deputy Editor Harriet was lucky enough to try out the experience for herself and hit some waves with pro-surfer Tyler Wright, World No 4! Check out the pics of Harriet's fun day of surfing on DOLLY's Facebook page.

On top of learning how to surf, all participants will walk away with a goodie pack which includes a Rip Curl beach bag, $20 Rip Curl voucher, GGSD t-shirt, sunscreen and a DOLLY magazine. Um, score!

The Girls Go Surfing Day is proudly supported by Surfing Australia, Rip Curl and DOLLY Magazine.

So ladies, get the girls together for a day of fun in the sun!
