6 Lobiteños - 1 Dream

Created May 24, 2018


For the last 10 years, Ride for the Cause (R4tC) has been supporting WAVES for Development in Lobitos, which we are beyond grateful for! The 10th and maybe last R4tC will take place this summer in Switzerland. It is our dream to be able to assist and participate in this huge event. We would be stocked to see what R4tC really is about, as we have only heard about it from stories we have been told or from videos we've seen. Also we would love to meet the people who participate in this event, the sponsors of Waves for Development, have a chat with them and share our view of the project with them. Of course it is also a unique opportunity to visit Switzerland, since, as you can imagine, none of us has ever been out of Peru!  Imagine us doing stand up paddle on a Swiss lake, eating cheese fondue and taking pictures with swiss cows!

This sounds like a crazy dream, but here is the good news: we only have to collect funds to cover transportation costs (basically our flights), since our accommodation and food will be Provided by R4tC team members.
Help us make this crazy dream come true!

-Team: Adrian (Surf instructor assistant, 14!), Jhonny (surf instructor), Irene (Administration), Sonia (enviromental teacher), Kike (responsible for fundrising), Luchito (filmmaker, Super Pro Surfer)

-Your money is needed for the transportation Lobitos- Montreux (specially the flight tickets Lima-Zürich)

-We would visit Switzerland over a Period of 2 weeks

-Food and accomodation would be provided by the team of Ride for the Cause

Este verano será el décimo y quizás el último evento de Ride for the Cause en Suiza. Los últimos 10 años Waves for Development ha sido apoyado por Ride for the Cause por lo que estamos muy agradecidos. Esta vez nuestro sueño es de participar nosotros mismos en el evento ya que podría ser la última vez que se realice. Nos encantaría ver lo que Ride for the Cause es en realidad ya que solo lo conocemos de relatos y videos. También nos gustaría conocer a la gente que participa en el evento, ya que son los patrocinadores de Waves for Development, conversar con ellos y mostrarles nuestro punto de vista sobre el proyecto. Y lógicamente sería emocionante de conocer Suiza, dado que la mayoría de nosotros nunca en nuestras vidas hemos estado fuera de Perú. Imagínate a nosotros haciendo Stand up Paddle en un lago suizo, comiendo Fondue y tomándonos fotos con vacas suizas!!!

Ayúdanos a que nuestro sueño se haga realidad!

Equipo: Adrián (asistente de instructor de surf, 14), Jhonny (instructor de surf), Irene (administración), Sonia (profesora de medio ambiente), Kike (representante de Waves Perú), Luchito (productor audiovisual, Super Pro Surfer)

Thanks to everyone who helped this lobiteño dream come true! With your money we were able to buy a flight ticket Lima-Basel return.
Jhonny, our surf teacher, came for 2 weeks to Switzerland to represent Waves Peru at Ride for the Cause. It was a big cultural shock for him (cars really stop when you want to cross the street!) and at the same time he could learn and understand a lot of things about how the ONG works but also about the way of life we have here in europe. Do you prefer a high standart of living but having to spend a lot of time working and beeing caught in the system or do you prefer to enjoy life by having a lot of freedom and time for surfing but with low living standarts??! Jhonny had a lot of interesting conversations.
Besides R4tC he had some time to enjoy the mountains and lakes of switzerland. He visited the cities Basel, Luzern and Montreux and he enjoyed activities like hiking the mount Pilatus or wake surfing in the lake of Geneva, skydiving, etc. Never in his life he would have imagined to experience stuff like that one day.
So thanks again!!!
And see you in Lobitos
