Help Janna & Carlos rebuildin Canoa
I am lucky to be alive and am grateful to start life again after the 7.8 Earthquake in Canoa, Ecuador. Carlos and I lost our buisness- Adicto Surf & SUP vegan cafe , our house, all our SUP & surf boards, our town's tourism and hearts crushed over loss- so much gone in an instant. However, onward and upward!
We want to start again but we have lots of debt now and do not currently have money to rebuild.
Please help us be able to live and invest in Canoa again- to be able to give options for healthy food, and get our beloved kids surf team back in the water surfing and SUP'ing! Help us make it a reality in these desperate times. Canoa needs us there again. We will return in September and are in need of money, building supplies, and surf & sup equipment. Please help with anything you can spare!
If we raise enough money we will rebuild our home and be welcoming volunteers to help us and others in town rebuild.
We want you to love Canoa like us and come visit in the future! Join us in rebuilding our awesome little, on the equator, surf town!

after 7.8 Earthquake
Thank you to all the people that have helped the people of Canoa so far! Let's get to building a beautiful, more tropical Canoa now. We need your help to make this a reality!
We have spent the summer at SUPGirlz but with the credit card debt now paid off we are not left with anything to rebuild -just yet. We are going back for the month of November and will try see what the possibilities are to getting some supplies or money out of the Ecuador earthquake funds that are already in place there. Not much has been done in the town, lots of people (most) are still in tents in not good conditions. We will report more when we get there. If anyone has any work for us (SUP, surf, or vegan related) let us know. We need to save up money to rebuild and we are still far from what we need to start. We will be in California in October for Pacific Paddle Games ( 4 Carlos) and a Master SUP WPA/PIF training ( 4 Janna) and Ecuador after that. We are excited to get back to see our beloved children , friends, and family. Please stay posted and thank you so much for all you have done already! We still have every intention to rebuild but need to keep money coming in until that is possible. Love to you all!
