Sam Lamriroy, organizer & former pro surfer : « Surfing is a wonderful thing. It is about challenging and pushing yourself, connecting with others and sharing this experience. It is more than just the act of riding a wave, more than the equipment you chose to ride, the ocean you play in, the beach you call home, the level you perform at. Disguised as ‘something fun to do' – this simple passion has the power to shape our lives, enrich our very existence».
