Surfing with a heart: The Surfskwela project
Aside from riding the waves and being cool, what else do surfers do? They support education.

CAMARADERIE, SURF, EDUCATION. The Manila Surfers Association's most recent event also celebrated the donation of school supplies and computers to Quirino Elementary School

MANILA, Philippines – On February 23 and 24, surfers converged to the La Union Surf Club in San Juan, La Union for the 8th Manila Surfers Cup organized by the Manila Surfers Association (MSA).

The event coincided with MSA’s Surfskwela Project, wherein the organization of weekend surfers donated school supplies and computers to Quirino Elementary School in Bacnotan, La Union.

MSA also reportedly donated a computer to the La Union Surf Club.
