These photos convinced us that smiles are contagious! We recently had the opportunity to send several boards, with support from Jasmine Echo, to the Cox's Bazar Lifesaving and Surf Club in Bangladesh to stoke out some groms in need. Heather Kessinger, filmmaker behind The Most Fearless, reached out to us before her last trip over to Bangladesh and worked with us to get boards to some special kids.
Overcoming poverty and adversity to pursue the sports they love, these determined kids are challenging cultural barriers to express themselves through surfing and skating…and they rip! We are inspired by their strength and excited to have our boards under their feet! A constant mantra for our team is ‘Dream Big’ and watching our boards being ripped around Bangladesh is a surreal experience for our team.
