Davide was working with children and young people by carrying out didactic projects of environmental education for many years. He wants his activities to be as inclusive as possible. That is why he sought to be hosted by Fuerte Tribu, a surf school that also deals with adaptive surfing. The idea of his project was based on sport disability and the environment, so being able to have an experience with them was ideal to him. A friend of his had told him about EYE and so he decided to submit his project without thinking twice. As a young entrepreneur, having the opportunity to deal with someone with experience in another country is essential to broaden one's point of view. His main expectation was to surf with disabled people as much as possible so it was and he returned to Italy full of stimuli and aware that the path he took was the right one. He hopes to collaborate as soon as possible with companies that deal with adapted surfing on the national territory.
During his stay in Fuerteventura, the main activities he carried out were: 1) collaborating with Rafa one of the Fuerte Tribu instructors during the course for adapted surf volunteers 5 people every week for 4 days 2) coordinating the volunteer work during the adapted surf days and 3) support the Fuerte Tribu instructors during the morning surf lessons usually managing the group of the little ones. Davide's passion for surfing and the sea the experience in working with children and the attention to the world of disability made him feel immediately one of the Fuerte Tribu family.
With this project Davide intends to also develop tourism accessible to all, so in the future, the collaboration with Fuerte Tribu could be consolidated with regard to this aspect. As for the practical act of adapted surfing, Davided benefited from this experience by also learning the organizational and managerial side of such activities by coming into contact with accommodation facilities, bloggers and other different realities that pay particular attention to the world of disability.
