Good Guys help surf's rising star

RISING surfing star Codie Klein is on her way to compete in the 2011 World Junior Surfing Championships in Peru after placing third at the Australian Junior Surfing Titles.

The 17-year-old and her family now face the daunting task of fundraising for her international journey.

To assist with her fundraising The Good Guys Tweed Heads will host a VIP Sale next Thursday between 6-8pm, held in conjunction with the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club and Kingscliff High School.

Codie said she was thankful for the support.

“The Good Guys are such an asset to the community with all the support they give,” Codie said.

“It’s not every day you get to travel the world to compete.”

The Good Guys Tweed Heads proprietor Rory Curtis said the store was pleased to support Codie’s cause.

“For Codie to have qualified for the junior surfing championships is such an achievement and totally deserving of the local community’s support,” Mr Curtis said.

Mr Curtis said 2% of sales from the night would be returned directly to Codie and her family to assist with their travel expenses.

“It’s not every day you get to travel the world to compete.”
