Lee-Ann Curren at Tynemouth Watch House – 23 September

Lee-Ann Curren is a French-American surfer, musician, filmmaker, and multi-support artist born in 1989 in Biarritz, France. She comes from a family of surfers (her father Tom Curren is 3 times world champion) and started surfing at an early age. Despite a successful career in competitive surfing with 2 European titles before the age of 19, she quickly followed the urge to explore beyond it, surfing outside the box using different crafts, and nurturing her skills and interests in music, various visual arts, and filmmaking.

Tynemouth Surf Open 30 Sept – 1 October

The annual surfing competition returns attracting international competitors and featuring a national junior contest.

Organised by North Tyneside Council and supported by North of Tyne Combined Authority.
