Tyson Poor, Emily Balla, Nicola Cranmer, Wyatt Miller in Bryan Metcalf-Perez iz Beyond Boardshorts team-a razikovali Kubo in posneli zanimiv 20 min film. Njihovo poslansatvo je pribljižati ljudem ta izjemem šport in navdihovati mladino po svetu, ki si sicer zaradi socialnih razmer in nedostopnosti opreme ter instruktorjev tega ne bi mogla privoščiti.
Bryan Metcalf-Perez: “It was hard to find any information on Cuba before we departed. The whole crew was nervous that we might not find any conditions or Cuban windsurfers. Even when we arrived our only source of information was word of mouth. We found ourselves asking for directions at every other street corner. This made finding anything; beaches, potential Windsurf centers, places to stay a long grueling process. In the end our efforts would not go in vein. We met some amazing people in a beautiful country. If we had know how much windsurf enthusiasm existed in Cuba we would have brought more gear with us. In a lot of locations like Cuba, it is really difficult for passionate local windsurfers to get equipment and fortunately, in the end we were able to give away two full setups that would be shared by a group of kids who all ripped! The best part of the trip was by far all the beautiful smiles generated simply by windsurfing. Seeing just how happy the sport that we have dedicated our lives to made our new Cuban friends may have even brought a few tears of joy to the Beyond Boardshorts crew. Since our trip in Cuba we have been inspired to generate a movement within the windsurfing/ water sport community. Our mission became clear; through inspiration, training and donations we would spread the joys that being on the water brings. And above all, we would share the qualities that leading active lives on the water provides to youth around the globe.”
