The Search Senegal

 

Searching for waves in Senegal and supporting a good cause at the same time. Dates SUN 8th of FEB - SUN 15th of FEB 2015.

Surf & Help is getting ready for the inauguration trip of 'The Search' in Senegal at the west coast of Africa. Going on a surf trip in the search for waves you have never seen nor surfed before is one of surfings' biggest source of joy. And doing so in an exotic and off-the-beaten-track environment makes it even more exciting. Thus 'The Search' adventures can't get missed and we are looking forward to our first edition in Senegal.

For this trip we ordered 2 water filters of the type 'Renegade' by Waves4Water which can produce over 8 million liters of clean water. The cost of these filters were 126 USD (103 EUR) and any donation towards this is of course very helpful for us.
