The BUONDI Surf Sessions returned to the Portuguese beaches and invited children and adults with motor, visual or cognitive disabilities for adapted surf lessons, held on 11 September in Matosinhos, and 18 September in Carcavelos. These sessions once again highlighted the extraordinary social inclusion project that is SURFaddict - Portuguese Adapted Surfing Association, with which BUONDI has had ties since 2016.
Without borders, the BUONDI Surf Sessions surf therapy was extended to a partnership with the SOMA - Surfers Proud of African Women project in 2021. For Francisca Sequeira, Portuguese founder of SOMA, this partnership with BUONDI "will contribute to female empowerment and the fight against early pregnancy, school dropout and gender inequality, supporting the biannual surf therapy programmes for 30 girls which include surfing lessons, supervised study sessions, English classes, sessions with a psychologist, family planning, hygiene and basic health care."
With a focus on social impact, BUONDI thus continues to encourage physical and mental well-being through surfing, which has been part of its DNA since the creation of the brand.
In this sense this 7th edition also promotes a "Surfing Solidarity Day" with the participation of surf schools from north to south of the country, in which part of the revenue from all the lessons purchased reverts to SOMA - Surfers Proud of African Women and SURFaddict - Portuguese Adapted Surfing Association.
Schools participating in the solidarity day of the BOUNDI Surf Sessions:
• FeelViana – Viana do Castelo - Praia do Cabedelo
• NaOnda – Ericeira – Praia da Foz do Lizandro
• Noah – Torres Vedras – Praia de Santa Cruz
• Wax – Faro – Praia de Faro
• OffSHore City – Ilhavo – Praia da Barra
