Created by pro surfers Lee Ann Curren and André Silva, Surf n Hope’s goal is to help children from Titanzinho shantytown by teaching them surfing in order to spare them from drugs, criminality and violence.
One of the latest news in Titanzinho, the surfschool EBST built a shaping room where they will be shaping their own board, and at the same time teach the kids how to make boards.
This will be a big change as getting surfboards is the main issue locals are facing to be able to surf. Now the cost of making boards will be way lower and who knows, maybe some good shapers can come out of this program?
