Surfboard Drive Presented by Sunshine Worldwide at Sweetwater!posted 8/22/2017 2:19:40 PM
Sunshine Worldwide is creating a surfboard drive for kids in Nicaragua and looking for donations by the middle of September. Feel free to bring any old boards by to help the cause.
While traveling in Central America we saw all the locals gaze and drool at all of the tourists catching waves. After speaking to a local 15 year old boy on the beach in Asseradores, Nicaragua he explained how it was his dream to surf but he didn't have any money and his town didn't have access to boards. So the locals wake up at and sit on the beach to watch us surf and try to live vicariously through us.
Imagine if people came to enjoy our hometown waves and we couldn't try surfing ourselves? We may be filled with envy, frustration, and sadness. With a passion and activity like surfing these kids can get out of trouble and learn what it's like to have a life filled with ambition and joy.
We like to think that by getting community involvement we are boosting our own morale and values and making our home a better place with caring individuals working towards the greater good. Our team is taking all donations down to a small village in Asseradores, Nicaragua at the end of September. Until then the teachers of the town are informing the students of our project and incentivizing them to do well in school as the boards will be giving to students who have shown dedication and improvement.
All donors will see who receives their board and get credit in our film of the trip!
