The Surfskwela Project: Ride the waves for a cause
Something you might want to consider doing over the weekend: sand, sea, and surf - for a cause.
The Manila Surfers Association (MSA), in partnership with the La Union Surf Club (LUSC), San Juan, La Union, the biggest surfing hotspot of Northern Luzon, for an intense and fun-filled weekend for the benefit of three schools in La Union.
On February 23 and 24, MSA-registered wave riders will get a chance to play and display against one another in various longboard and shortboard divisions: Novice, Open, Invitational and an open-to-all Costume Division, all of which will be held at Urbiztondo Beach, San Juan, La Union.
This also marks the 8th year celebration of MSA. With its 300-strong membership base of Manila-based surfers ranging from casual beginners to hardcore regulars, it aims to create positive impact in surfing communities all over the Philippines.
True to its commitment to positively impact local surf spots and communities, proceeds from the competition shall go to MSA’s Surfskwela Fund which will benefit three schools in La Union. A Kick-Off Party will be held on February 20, Wednesday, at Handlebar Makati, 8PM, for donation drive to amass used books, educational materials and school supplies in support of the Surfskwela project.
