Surfing came into my life in a moment of weakness and today is my greatest strength. When I caught my first waves at the age of 10, my life began to take shape unconsciously because from that moment on I had a purpose, a guiding line: to become a better surfer every day. In a short time, my results began to change, both professional and personal, social, academic … that’s why today I look back and I am very grateful to this sport for the lessons it has given me over the years and will undoubtedly continue to give me.
But there is something unique about surfing that makes it so special… the sea.
The sea is our meeting point, it is an ever-changing, strong, and surprising natural environment. In it, we wait for the perfect wave that will never come but represents the infinite wait that hooks us to return the next day. There are many of us who resort to the sea and that is why we must take care of it and share it for the benefit of all those who need it.
My first contributions to this cause were made by Kind Surf, a socio-environmental NGO dedicated to young people in disadvantaged situations, helping them through surfing and environmental education. As their slogan says, Bring Happiness, I was very surprised to see the level of enjoyment and emotions that these days caused in the lives of young people and their families.
This seed of awareness continued to expand until it became the common ground with ISDIN, SUBARU, and ADIDAS, companies I work with on activities that have a positive impact on the environment and on people’s minds.
My intention is to go one step further and include these actions in new audiovisual projects to raise awareness among a greater number of people from an informative, entertaining, and optimistic perspective… will you help me?
