Surfing in cuba was illegal until recently, yet still with limited resources the locals have caught the surf stoke and surf everything from plywood to refrigerator foam boards. Three years ago, Natalie Small, founder of GSCP, joined with local cuban surfsister Yaya and launched the first women's surf club to empower women in the waves. Now Yaya is starting her own nonprofit, Ola Cuba to share surf stoke and ocean conservation with youth in Cuba! Interested in supporting your surf sisters and helping share their story?
