This photo shows Beth our instructor from Aloha Punta Cana talking in a local Bavaro radio show "Bavaro live" to one of the host and our friend from Argentina Juliette. The purpose of the show was to talk about the social and moral awareness on trash, pollution, and how using common sense and good values can help us all in the long run. We spoke about the youth and they're importance in preserving the future for everyone and how to be educated them on the handling and disposing of trash and anything that might hurt mother nature and us in that process.
Oh and yeah we also spoke about how you can have a super cool time Surfing, Stand Up Paddleboarding and taking a SUP Yoga class with us at Aloha Punta Cana.
Sharing the stoke of Surfing with my father has truly been a blessing. This was something like 6 years ago when I arrived to Macao Beach from studying overseas in Barcelona, Spain, definitely a little overweight and rusty but still happy to be back in the island of merengue and rum where im from.
Throw back to the Macao Surf Fest, the first local PRO-AM surfing competition held in October, 2013 at Macao Beach, Punta Cana. Manuel Selman born in Chile, but raised in the warm waters of Playa Encuentro Cabarete, took the 1st Place in the Open Mens category, earning a US$500 prize money and all the bragging rights. In this particular photo is yours truly, the local surf comp MC, Daniel Alvarez, next to the MSF judge Jan Evertz, argentinian pro surf photographer German Perez and the champ himself, Manuel Selman. Again thank you to all the great sponsors who made this event possible:
