Tofino surf instructor launches board drive for Nicaraguan education program
A great idea for re-purposing surf boards that might otherwise end up in a dump somewhere. Tofino is a great surfing community on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The only difference from here is a 6mil wetsuit and down jacket when you are surfing 😉
Over 30 used surfboards are destined for warm Nicaraguan waters.
The preloved quiver of boards was collected by Tofino surf instructor Adam Tory as part of a larger effort to develop a sustainable community centre and surf education program in the coastal village of El Astillero.
“I was blown away with people’s willingness and support. I couldn’t believe it. All of a sudden I had too many boards. I didn’t know what to do with them,” said Tory, adding that Storm Surf Shop and Pacific Surf School helped with the shipping logistics.
