Showing someone surfing for the first time, and witnessing the immensely positive impact it has upon them, brings the privilege that we have here in Tofino into great clarity. This realisation has been a driving force in Pacific Surf Company’s engagement with organisations that break down barriers to accessing the ocean.
Power To Be was founded on the belief that physical activity and time outdoors is paramount to health and happiness, and that no one should be excluded from nature for any reason.
This shared belief is the foundation of our partnership with Power To Be. Lessons in Surfing and Life gives perspective to some of the experiences that we have been able to offer through working together. We continue to work with and support Power To Be to create pathways to surfing for people who may not have had the means to do so themselves.
What is Power To Play?
We’re getting competitive. We’re training hard. The 4 am wake ups every morning - cardio, legs day, teamwork seminars, strategy sessions. This year we are going to take it home. By it, of course, I mean 1st place at the annual Power to Play race. It’s a race of epic proportions that guides you across land and through water, pushing your limits to fundraise and work together in support of Power To Be!
The race will be held in Victoria on May 27th where all teams raising money for Power to Be will gather to compete. Support our team, the Pacific Surf Company Waveriders by donating here!
On Friday, May 25th, Pacific Surf Company is running Power to Play Day here in Tofino. Get involved in a day of yoga, SUPing and surfing, followed by a Wolf in the Fog catered BBQ to top it all off. All events are run by donation and 100% of proceeds go towards Power To Be, and will help give our team an edge in the Power to Play race. Great opportunity. Great Cause! See you there!
