WHAT´S HAPPENING?

Ericeira surf: Algarve held 2nd adapted surf event

ericeira surfThe Second Meeting of Surf Adapted from Praia da Rocha, aimed at young people with disabilities, was held on July 31 and this year featured the Solidarity Vela, after the success achieved in the previous initiative. Ericeira surf companies applauded this initiative.

The stage of this meeting was the Sports area of ​​Praia da Rocha. The subscribers had the opportunity to try surfing and sailing. Entries were free and opened to entities of Portimão and neighboring counties. However, Ericeira surf supporters went to the event as well.

Surf Adapted event had the applause of Ericeira surf entities

The objectives of the event were to promote the practice of adapted sports, its benefits and its integrative capacity, particularly in social areas. Creating sporting habits in participating as a way to encourage them to actively contribute to building a model to find answers to promote the integration of people with disabilities were other valuable goals.

The initiative also aimed to raise awareness in terms of rights and equality for these citizens combining local efforts to promote surf mode among recipients, counting for this purpose with the cooperation of the Future Surf School, Playsurf, the Naval Club of Portimão, the Portimão Surf Club and the Yacht Club Marina of Portimão.

This action was another sign that people with disabilities are no different from any other

As an organization of the Municipality of Portimão, this event had the official sponsor DECHATLON Portimão and still had the support of the City Water Slide, Continent and club More Algarve.

The adapted sports gained more athletes and fans across the country, thanks to the persistence of the Portuguese Federation of Sports for the Disabled, and the many associations, including Ericeira surf entities, in their daily struggle for equal rights and access to the various areas of society.

This action was another sign that people with disabilities are no different from any other and that this time of year, like any other, can and should practice different physical activities appropriate to their limitations, especially in order to stimulate physical and mental health, their quality of life and self-esteem.
