Okay, what do you do when the winter winds are ripping through you and the thermometer has dropped into single digits? Find a little hope – that’s what. Hope that there’s a little something around the corner, just a glimmer, just a chance of something special. Look no further than the XXXX Summer Bright Lager competition and its 19-day beach and surf safari around Australia first prize.

Let’s face it, your chances of winning Lotto are as likely as the Government announcing surfers who successfully ride out of all reef break barrels are to be awarded cash pay outs equal to the baby bonus – it ain’t happening.

Enter this sweet little comp supported by Tracks however and the odds change in your favour big time! Along with the trip for you and three mates (which includes nine locations such as Coolangatta, Byron Bay, Cottesloe Beach and Bells Beach), there is also $5,000 cash, 1,000 bucks credit at a local Coolangatta surf store, dinners, surf lessons, dolphin swims and more.

Plus, there are THREE of these trips to be won so you have a good shot of scoring! Are you kidding?!! Imagine the good times you’ll have being put up at quality digs at each of these location and enjoying a few XXXX Summer Bright cold ones with your feet up after a full days surfing. All in one of the eight pairs of Rhythm boardies you’ll be taking home too.

Now that’s the kind of HOPE you need to hold onto in the grips of a mid-winter freeze!
