We had an amazing time in Colombia this past February changing kids lives. We made a VIDEO from some of our clips. On this trip we visited two very distinct places. One area was in the Choco region of Colombia. The town we impacted was called Termales. Only a couple of the kids there had boards so it was cool to bring more love (surfboards) to them.
If Remy could, he would live at the beach! He and his friends surf and skim everyday. The last swell his board broke and has not had the opportunity to get another. He wrote a compelling story as to why he needs a new surfboard. As a result, STSF provided one. Remy's favorite surfer is Dane and hopes to someday be able to be that good. Keep it up!
Ashley is an awesome young lady with a wonderful heart for people and
her community. She is involved in a variety of different service clubs
and wants to be more involved in STSF. Above anything though she loves nature, the beach and wants to surf!!! Share the Stoke was able to make that a reality for her. Get out there Ashley and enjoy what you love most!
Shane is a great kid. He makes good grades at Freedom Shores. He also oves going to Lake Worth Pier to surf. He has been on a surfboard before but never owned his own. He has a boogie board but really wanted to surf. Now Shane has the opportunity to go. His family and he love going to the beach, but he says now he wants to go everyday. We are super stoked for this grom to own his own board and GO SURF!
This is the surf club of San Bernardo del Viento. We got to spend a day with them introducing the sport of surfing to them. They had never seen or heard of this sport before which made it very interesting when we got them into the water and pushed them into waves. They were so eager to get out there and get surfing. They are so proud to be a part of the surf club and will be able to check a board in and out on a daily basis through community leader Vidal. We are so proud to be in partnership with communities like San Bernardo del Viento.
These kids are so happy that they are part of the cool new world of surfing. They feel a part of something great. The smiles are so contagious and make us so happy. Surfing is a wonderful sport that has the ability to change lives. The surf club of San Bernardo del Viento is proof. Thanks to the people who made all of this possible.
Miguel is one of the members of the new surf club of San Bernardo del Viento. He should have no problems learning to surf. He is an athlete and very active. He was part of our surf event where we taught the sport of surfing to over 30 kids and adults. On his second time surfing he literally stayed out in the water until you could no longer see. That is what it takes to be a killer surfer. I'm sure this kid will be out in the water all the time getting waves.
Aldair is one of the kids of the newly established Club de Surfistas del Viento. On our stoke mission we introduced the sport of surfing to over 30 kids and adults who had never seen or heard of the sport before. We donated five Firewire surfboards to the club. Kids can check the boards in and out from local leader, Vidal. Vidal is a major part of this community by having a priority on the youth and teaching them about our oceans and the creatures of it.
Yeifer who is only eight years old is already a very good surfer. We stoked him out with a brand new surfboard. Now he no longer has to borrow a board and can go and surf any time he feels like it. We had the chance to film him while he surfed and he was ripping. This kid is going to be so good. He was the only kid who paddled out to the break and caught the bombs. I love to see little kids going for broke out there. Hats off to Yaifer.
