Distribution of surfboards on the coast

Our first distribution of surfboards took place in May 2023 and was a great success. Through this initiative, new opportunities have been created for remote coastal communities, paving the way for more tourism in these areas.

Aiming to support coastal communities in Côte d'Ivoire, the NGO Surf Côte d'Ivoire and the NGO provide the slide, an organization providing surfboards to several West African countries , recently organized a distribution of surfboards in remote areas of the Ivorian coast. This initiative aims to introduce an exciting new sport to these areas, providing new opportunities and a source of positivity for locals.

The distribution of surfboards generated extraordinary enthusiasm among the locals. Children and adults alike welcomed this new opportunity to get involved in a sport that was previously inaccessible to them. The talented young surfers were particularly delighted to be able to develop their skills and practice their passion with adapted equipment.

Bringing surfing to these remote communities has brought many positive benefits. First of all, this sport offers a new healthy and entertaining physical activity for young people and adults. It promotes an active lifestyle and encourages camaraderie and cooperation among community members.

In addition, the development of surfing also generates a significant economic impact. Surf spots in Côte d'Ivoire can attract local and international surfers, which can generate income for locals through related activities such as equipment rental, surf lessons and accommodation services. This could help accelerate tourism in these areas and improve the socio-economic conditions of the communities that live there.

The NGO Surf Côte d'Ivoire plans to continue supporting these communities by providing additional training, local surfing competitions and environmental awareness programs. They hope these initiatives will help promote sustainable development and strengthen the connection between coastal people and ocean protection.
