Hey (name).

Nothing kills a pool party vibe quite like COVID-19…

After holding back for as long as possible, I’m sorry but I’ve been left little choice other than to cancel the Ecto Pool Party due to the rapidly changing situation surrounding the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing restrictions.

The safety of everyone is most important and at this point many guests could potentially be at risk travelling interstate in the coming weeks.

There is no evidence that the Coronavirus can be spread to humans through the use of pools and URBNSURF remains open but with limited bookings (see the full statement here: https://urbnsurf.com/guestsafety/)

Believe me, cancelling this is extremely disappointing as loads of energy has gone into getting this event off the ground. It’s always been a dream of mine to hold an expression session in pumping waves like the #EctoPoolParty offered.

This is an official cancellation and not a postponement. I do hope to run the Ecto Pool Party in the future and you’ll be the first to know about it.

You will be fully refunded for your ticket (and shirt). I apologise for any inconvenience and greatly appreciate your support and enthusiasm. I hope all you frothers seek solace in the pristine tubes on offer at your local coastline during these chaotic times.

I encourage all of you to help limit the spread by practising social distancing, avoiding major events, using clean towels, washing your hands regularly, and avoiding touching your face, mouth, eyes and nose with your hands.
Stay safe & happy bodysurfing!

With regret & much love,

Chris Anderson
Ecto Founder
