This is how the tickling began, to offer the experience of surfing People with Disabilities (PcD).
In 2013, a good friend of the Surfing Smiles family, Arturo Tamayo invites our founder to be part of eldesurf.com, a blog with the purpose of simply sharing videos and information with friends, after one year eldesurf.com evolves and becomes the producer of the Acapulco Pro event, an open national surf tournament that was held in 2014, 2015 and 2016. In those years, Arturo sowed Daniel the idea of making a foundation that promotes adapted surfing and other value , however, only stayed in that idea.
In March 2018, Diego Lombera appears out of nowhere at the Surf Film Festival CDMX, a festival that brings together the community that has a similar taste for outdoor activities in order to promote sports, nature, art and life. culture of the environment, as well as the exhibition of athletes and film producers in Mexico.
Daniel was at that festival and without hesitation, Diego showed up with him and told him that he wanted to do something for the PcD since he in his family has had some experiences and is a lover of nature and outdoor activities.
Our founder could not ignore so many signals and took advantage of the impulse of Diego and other people to finally realize the long-awaited dream of having an adapted surf clinic in Acapulco in June 2018.
