Hunting Waves In Haiti
STSF and the Surf Haiti organization have partnered to help get quality surfboards for the surf school. During the visit in Haiti we were honored to be at the grand opening ceremony of the first ever surf school in Haiti. It was a moment that we will always cherish because we understand the importance of a surf community in a place such as Haiti. Because Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, there is an underlying sense of scarcity.
For the kids who participate at the surf school, they get a feeling as if it is their second home. To some it is their primary home. Surf Haiti is focused on improving the physical, spiritual, vocational, academic and social lives of Haitians. They are stoked to have more people come to Jacmel and spread the word about how amazing this tropical area is.
STSF is eager to see the growth of the school and revisit again in 2015. They have big plans for the school and we are stoked to be a part of helping them succeed.
