Extreme Holidays, the new UK tour operator that organises surfing, windsurfing

and kitesurfing holidays in the Canary Islands, is to donate £5 to Surfers

Against Sewage (SAS) for every booking it takes during the month of March.

The company's two founders, Emma Prince and Chris Pedder, both keen surfers,

are avid admirers of the work undertaken by the single issue pressure group

in its campaign for clean, safe water.

"We at Extreme Holidays believe that those who enjoy the highs of extreme

watersports should seek to give back to the ocean by respecting and living in

harmony with the sea," said Emma, adding, "We believe in respecting

the ocean not abusing it.

"We hope to support SAS in Europe and beyond; wherever our holidays travel

we will endeavour to take the philosophies of SAS," she said.

Extreme Holidays caters for everyone from the complete novice looking to get

on a board for the first time, the intermediate surfer looking to improve their

technique, for experts who just want to be shown where the best surf is to be

found. The tailor-made packages are ideal for mixed ability groups, with or

without tuition.

Prices range from £255 to £595 per week for adults and £120

to £295 for children up to the age of 12, including optional insurance,

excluding flights.

A 20% discount is available for holidaymakers using their own equipment.

A beach crèche and hotel kids club are available free of charge.

The minimum age limit for tuition is 7 years for surfing, 10 years for windsurfing

and 18 years for kitesurfing. Younger children can partake in the whole holiday

with supervised body boarding in the shallows.

Participants just require a moderate level of fitness able to swim at least

50 metres in open water.
