Nicaragua And The Leaders
Nicaragua and STSF have a long history as it is the home to the first STSF international board giveaway. The foundation has a consistent formula at several beach towns in Nicaragua that includes the older boys in the community hosting surf lessons for the younger children, beach clean ups, and a surf competitions. Nicaraguan communities are always eager to incorporate lessons in loving Mother Nature and keeping the beaches clean. This is in line with one of STSF’s core values.
STSF is eager to grow their sponsorship program for “Surfboard Library Systems” in Nicaragua. This is a program that supplies teachers with surfboards who use the boards as a way to keep kids engaged in their education. If the local kids stay in school and are actively involved in learning they can “check out” a high performance surfboard.
