Surf Without Borders - Program Update
SWB (Surf Without Borders) conducted its first surf workshop with a group of Grade 7 learners from the EwB program at Mseki Primary School in Gugulethu on Saturday January 25th, 2020.
For all the learners, it was their first surfing experience. The Grade 7’s are featured in this video as Guy Cohen (from LA) narrates from Strandfontein beach.
SWB was initiated by Guy Cohen and Nathan Paul ( both from LA) who raised the funds by preparing gourmet meals in homes for prospective donors in the LA area and then going to SA to team up with a surf school (9Miles project) to take EwB Grade 7 learners from Mseki Primary in Gugulethu on their first surfing lesson.
The EwB team in Cape Town helped with the various arrangements (permission forms, transport, support). A big WOW and thank you to all who enabled this to happen. 🙏 This will occur now on a monthly basis through the year!
