Tortugas Tour


Saturday, 24th April saw the Tortugas Tour at La Cicer, (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria), Daniell Alcock sends me the pictures and some writing explaining the experience:

The competition, organised by University Surf School, is an initiative to get children enjoying no-pressure fun contests and honing their skills against other children of their ages and abilities.

With Surf Canaries Surf team traveling from Arguineguin for their first ever contest, the atmosphere in the van was electric!

The event went fantastically and something that all the children will remember for their whole lives. The atmosphere was that of fun and sportsmanship and the children from the south west of the island got to know their counterparts from the north east side - maybe people that they will be travelling with and competing against over their entire surf careers.

We had to have winners, but the results are forgotten straight away and tomorrow we will return to surf and those results wont count anymore, it is time to think about the next contest.

Many thanks to the organisers and well done to all the children for their efforts in and out of the water.
