Travel Daily - - News -

HI-FIVES were handed out all-round at Hawaiian Air­lines, when the car­rier’s surf team lived up to its desti­na­tion’s lofty rep­u­ta­tion, win­ning the Wyn­d­ham Des­ti­na­tions Cor­po­rate Surf Chal­lenge.

Part­ner­ing with Flight Cen­tre, the joint-band team took out first place at Du­ran­bah Beach in the Tweed Shire - an­other mile­stone for Hawaiian Air­lines to cel­e­brate as it rings in its 90th year (TD 13 Nov).

Cor­po­rate teams took to New South Wales’ north­ern­most beach to bat­tle it out for the ti­tle, all the while rais­ing a record of over $20,000 for FSHD Global Re­search Foun­da­tion, which raises money for fa­cioscapu­lo­humeral mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy.

Pic­tured re­lax­ing on the beach post a sick aerial are Darren Wright, Chief Brand Of­fi­cer, Flight Cen­tre Travel Group; Hi­nata Aizawa, Flight Cen­tre Sports & Events spon­sored surfer; Geoffrey Booth, Mer­chan­dis­ing Ex­ec­u­tive, Straightha­nder; Chris Mater, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Surf­ing Aus­tralia; Dion Atkin­son, Pro­ject Tech­ni­cal Expert – Coach­ing, Surf­ing Aus­tralia; and Bart Druitt, Hawaiian Air­lines.
