Afghan Surf Championship

Behind the scenes at the first-ever Afghan Surf Championship.

A look behind the scenes at the first-ever Afghan surf championships is what you see in the second part of my photo-documentary of a wonderful time in Portugal. For WRAA, one of the main goals besides creating a platform for Afghan wave riders to share their joy in the sport of surfing was to present the beauty of Afghanistan and its people to the public by offering a wide range of workshops in Afghan traditions. It was truly an inspiring experience to participate in this unique effort of cultural exchange. Thanks to all the amazing people that have made this whole event such a warm-hearted and cheerful celebration! I am already looking forward to our next encounter. Afghan surfing rules! :-)
